Dartmouth is the seventh-most right-swiped campus among men

Before I break the news to you all, I’d like to start with a small disclaimer. I’m a reporter, perhaps the furthest thing from a doctor, and I haven’t taken one class that anyone could possibly spin as pre-med. I have, however, taken AP Bio, ridden in an ambulance and seen a solid 80 percent of “Grey’s Anatomy.” So let’s just say I feel pretty confident in my ability to both diagnose and invent a wide variety of illnesses and conditions. Take “Tinderitis,” for example.

If you, like me, have experienced Tinderitis at some point in your life, this comes as no surprise. Tinder released their list of the “Most Right-Swiped” campuses in the country today, meaning which people receive the most right-swipes when others view their profile, split between the most right-swiped men and women. The men of Dartmouth have solidified their places as the seventh-most right-swiped among U.S. universities.

Ah, finally, a college ranking I think we can all get behind.

For those of you a little less acquainted with the Tinder lifestyle, swiping right can mean a series of things — you think the person is attractive, they seem like someone you’d like to ask on a date or they simply look like the kind of person you’d want to keep you company at night.

On their blog, Tinder lists the top 50 schools that receive the most right-swipes among men and women. Florida State University takes the top spot for women, with the men of Georgetown University receivingthe most right-swipes on the other side.

There are some interesting trends among the top 25 schools in each list. Both lists include schools from all over the country, while the University of Mississippi was the only one to place on both the men’s and women’s lists (third for women and ninth for men). Most of the campuses with the most right-swiped men are private schools, while the entire top 10 for women are public schools.

The question we’re all waiting for, of course, is how did we stack up against the other Ivies. Yale University beat the Dartmouth men with a slight lead, coming in at sixth ahead of our seventh. Cornell and Brown Universities also made the top 25, with Brown at 12th and Cornell at 17th. Among the women, no Ivy League school seemed to break the top 50.
