The Least Sexy Ivy Leagues On Tinder

by Stephanie Maida · October 6, 2016

    Since Tinder users are obviously an elite group who care about impeccable breeding and not just one night stands, the app added education information to profiles last November. We can certainly understand why it had been one of the most requested features, as spending even a mere few hours with a person who can't articulate a sentence could be unbearable, not to mention unsexy. As John Waters once said, "If you go home with somebody, and they don't have books, don't fuck them!" 

    Following this logic, one would expect that the crème de la crème of Ivy Leaguers (re: Harvard, Yale, and Princeton) would be among the most swiped-right in Tinderland. Besides the notion that these smarties would likely have many books strewn passionately across their beds, they're also seemingly on the higher end of the earning scale (or, at least, their father is). 

    How surprised we were, then, to learn that these top notch students and alumni were in fact at the very bottom of the Ivy dating pool. Today, Tinder released some stats that revealed the sexiest Universities in terms of swipes, and the rankings are pretty unexpected. Princeton, Yale, and Harvard came in at 6th, 7th, and 8th place, while UPenn and Brown snagged the top spots. When it comes to monthly matches, though, it's NYC's own Columbia that takes home the (booty) prize. 

    Check out all the rankings below.
