The majority of "selective" schools -- those that admit only 35% of applicants -- admitted more men than women for the fall 2012 term, according to an analysis by The Washington Post. Using federal data, the newspaper's analysis found 64 of the 128 colleges and universities reviewed admitted men at a higher rate. Men and women were admitted at an equal rate at 16 schools, and women outpaced men at 48 schools, including at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
