The Sexiest, Smartest Colleges In The Country

The statistics have spoken — these schools combine the highest intellectual standards with the hottest scholars. Brag accordingly.

Sexiness has been tragically ignored by most college ranking systems (we're looking at you, US News & World Report), but no longer. BuzzFeed plotted Forbes' academic rankings of colleges and universities against dating site DateMySchool's hotness index, which measures the attractiveness of students by how much interest their dating profiles get. Schools in the top right of the graph above scored high in both. Then BuzzFeed weighted both ranks equally and tallied them up to determine our top 10:

10. Carnegie Mellon University

9. University of Virginia

8. Harvard University

7. Boston University

6. Boston College

5. Columbia University

4. University of Pennsylvania

3. Princeton University

2. Dartmouth College

1. Brown University
