Find Out Which Universities Have The Hottest AND Smartest Alums In The Dating Game

Hot guys

There’s a lot of lists out there that rank universities for all kinds of different reasons. Some use facts and figures. Others use a less scientific method, like looking at pictures on Tumblr and considering the input of a bunch of frat guys with dad bods. But is there a list out there for those of us who are equally interested in looks and intellect (read: earning potential)?

Well, the folks at the dating app Hinge have come up with that list. Using information on attractiveness from their own app – university alumni that have high “swipe right” rates on their profiles – and combining it with info from the US News & World Report’s competitive ranking of national universities, they developed a list of the top thirty universities with the most brainy and bangable alumni.

  1. Vanderbilt University
  2. Wake Forest University
  3. Southern Methodist University
  4. Duke University
  5. University of Virginia
  6. Tulane University
  7. University of Miami
  8. University of Wisconsin – Madison
  9. Clemson University
  10. Boston College
  11. UNC Chapel Hill
  12. Lehigh University
  13. Princeton University
  14. Texas Christian University
  15. Dartmouth College
  16. University of California, Santa Barbara
  17. University of Southern California
  18. Georgetown University
  19. Miami University
  20. University of Georgia
  21. University of Notre Dame
  22. Yale University
  23. University of Pennsylvania
  24. University of Florida
  25. Pepperdine University
  26. Brown University
  27. Emory University
  28. Harvard University
  29. University of Colorado Boulder
  30. University of Alabama

Bonus: the report has pictures of actual alumni who are currently on Hinge. And I’ve got to be honest, there are definitely some guys on there that I’d go on a first date with. And by first date, I mean invite over at 1 a.m. when I’m drunk and horny. Obviously. So if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be over here furiously swiping right until I match with that hot guy from Georgetown.
