Yet again, the hottest and smartest people are going to Brigham Young University.
That’s according to new rankings published by Forbes and based on data compiled by Niche. Forbes included several quotes with the their rankings of "colleges where students are both hot and smart," including this one:
"Mormons are attractive. I don’t know why, but they are. And smart. Everyone is hot and smart here and it’s crazy! They can come off as a little judgmental, but most of them aren’t, they just seem like it because they’re stereotyped that way."
BYU also took the top spot last year.
Forbes doesn’t speculate on why BYU students might have more hots and smarts than other schools, and I can’t explain it either, despite having wondered about this topic since I was a student in Provo.
And in case you’re interested, here are the top five schools on the list:
2. Pacific Union College
3. University of Virginia
4. Georgetown University
5. Stanford University
