Get Your Chances of Admission to Small New England NEWMAC Colleges and Universities

The East Coast boasts some of the top most selective colleges and universities in the U.S., including small New England schools which are members of the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC): Babson College, Clark University, MIT, Mount Holyoke College, Smith College, Springfield College, U.S. Coast Guard Academy, Wellesley College, Wheaton College, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI).

Each NEWMAC college and university has different, admission requirements,  admissions criteria and standards, so an applicant’s chance of admission can vary significantly from college to college.   If you’re curious about which NEWMAC or other top colleges you’re more likely to get into, Go4Ivy can calculate your chances of admission, so you can make informed decisions about where to apply. Go4Ivy developed a separate algorithm for each NEWMAC college and university which predicts students’ chances of being accepted by each school. These algorithms are continually updated and revised as the schools change their admission criteria and their approaches. Over the last 15 years our predictions have been over 90% correct (100% correct the last three years). Go4Ivy refunds the fee for any school for which its prediction turns out to be incorrect. We are proud to have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.

About New England's NEWMAC Conference

The New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) is an association of ten selective Massachusetts, upstate New York and Connecticut colleges that participate in NCAA Division III athletics.

The conference, founded in 1985 by six women's institutions, was originally called The New England Woman's 6 Conference. After accepting two more colleges in 1988, its name was changed to the NEW8. In 1999, two more colleges were added and the conference became known as the NEWMAC, the name it uses today. Upon its last renaming, the conference began to sponsor conference play and championships for men's teams in addition to the women's teams that were already being sponsored.

Although all ten NEWMAC colleges emphasize academics over athletics and share the same athletic philosophies in the sports they sponsor, the colleges are quite different from each other. Note that their undergraduate enrollments range significantly. Three of the colleges only accept women (Mt. Holyoke, Smith, and Wellesley) and others are known for their engineering (M.I.T., W.P.I., and the Coast Guard Academy) or business program(Babson Colleges ), while Clark University, Wheaton College and Springfield College are co-ed schools emphasizing liberal arts.
