These College Alums Make the Best—and Worst—Dates

1 minute read

For college graduates that have a lot of school spirit, the matchmaking service The Dating Ring has ranked alums of various schools based on how dateable they are.

The company analyzed 75,000 feedback reports generated by 6,750 daters ages 18-66 living in New York City (53%) and San Francisco (29%), while the rest are from Los Angeles and Boston. The “2015 College Dateability Rankings” are based on whether users said “yes,” “no” or “maybe” to potential matches. Users who got a “yes” response earned one point, those who got a “maybe” earned half a point, and those who got rejected did not earn any points. Each user’s score was averaged, and an average for all users who attended a certain college was calculated to produce the following ranking.
