By Adam Clark | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
Every year, tens of thousands of high school graduates leave New Jersey for out-of-state colleges.
But what about the students who want stay at home? Just how likely are they to get into one of the state’s four-year colleges?
Acceptance rates run the gamut from one of the country’s most exclusive universities to several colleges that take almost everyone who applies.
Here are the Fall 2017 acceptance rates for the 26 four-year colleges with at least 1,000 applications, not including for-profit colleges.

26. William Paterson University
Acceptance rate: 92.4 percent
Note: William Paterson University called its acceptance rate for 2017 an anomaly. It received fewer applications in 2017 because it eliminated fee waivers that allowed prospective students to apply for free. The university has reinstated the fee waivers and expects its acceptance rate to return to usual, around 73 percent, spokeswoman Mary Beth Zeman said.
25. St. Peter’s University
Acceptance rate: 91.3 percent
24. New Jersey City University
Acceptance rate: 91 percent
23. Caldwell University
Acceptance rate: 88.9 percent
