The Gender Ratio at Elite Universities

57% of college students are female. This is often cited as a cause of the “hook up culture.” I used the USNew’s list of universities by ranking and the data supplied by them to create this list of top universities by percentage female(to see the gender percentage for a particular college in USNews’s list, click the college’s profile there and then click “student life”):

top 50 by percent female

All of the most elite schools have more males than females, and of these 50 schools only 5 exceed the “57%” number. The median percentage for these schools is 50.5% and the mean(with all the schools counted equally) is 50.1%.
