Tinder CEO Sean Rad Noam Galai/Getty Images for TechCrunch Where you went to college is one of the big factors people use to decide whether they want to go on a first date with you, Tinder CEO Sean Rad told Business Insider in an interview last year .
That's why your education is one of a few pieces of information, along with your job, that Tinder often puts on the very front of your profile.
But does that mean that the more elite a school is, the more matches its students and alumni get on Tinder?
We decided to find out by taking a look at a particular subset: The Ivies. Tinder pulled data for us on people who have the eight Ivy League schools listed on their profiles, and then ranked those schools based on how high a percentage of "yes" swipes they got in September (versus "no" swipes). This inherently takes population size of the school into account.
The findings might surprise you. Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, which ranked the highest out of all universities on US News' annual US college list , brought up the rear. Penn was the winner, followed by Brown and Columbia.
Tinder also showed us data on the schools that got the most matches in September overall (Columbia) and "Super Likes" (Harvard).
