It’s pretty difficult to get accepted to Harvard, if you were unaware. This year, the elite institution admitted just 5.9% of applicants, according to newly released data.
Here’s the thing, though. Getting into Harvard is truly a piece of cake compared to getting accepted for a job at Walmart, at least according to data crunched by The Washington Post.
The Washington Post reports that when a new Walmart opened in D.C., 23,000 people vied for 600 job openings. That means just 2.6% were accepted. Compare that to Dartmouth’s 11.5%, Cornell’s 14%, University of Pennsylvania’s 10% and so on, and you’ll see that Walmart is way choosier than all the Ivy League institutions. Even Harvard. We repeat, even Harvard.
Sorry, Ivy Leaguers, but Walmart is officially a way more elite and exclusive club.
