Some US schools accept more international students than others. While colleges are making an effort to bring diversity to universities, it is easier for international students to get into some of these schools, USNews reported.

According to data from USNews, of the ranked 205 universities that shared data, the average acceptance rate for international students was 48 percent for fall 2016. It is important to note, however, that at other schools the percentage is much higher – with some even climbing close to 100 percent, reportedly.
