Ladies, looks like we’ll have to step up your game to snag one of Boston’s brightest guys.
Fall 2014 is here and Coffee Meets Bagel’s Chief Data Scientist sifted through over 150,000 matches made among alumni & students of the nation’s top tech universities - Georgia Tech, Cal Tech, and MIT - to find out who is the most popular & pickiest.
Unsurprisingly, the first factor in determining whether someone gets a lot of date requests is physical attractiveness.
But it's more than just whether someone is hot or not.
But when women are in oversupply—as they are today at most U. colleges and universities—men play the field and women are more likely to be treated as sex objects.
In 2013, the gender ratio among that year’s college graduates was , women to men. With girls continuing to outpace boys in school and young women continuing to attend college in ever-greater numbers, the U. Department of Education now expects the ratio to approach three women for every two men by 2023.
It seems like the men of MIT have both beauty and brains: we easily beat out other top tech schools in terms of desirability.
And it turns out desirability also leads to selectivity, as our guys are also the pickiest by far.
