WASHINGTON – Here’s a list that will interest both prospective college students and their parents.

College Prowler, a site that says it uses student reviews for insight on nearly 7,000 schools, has compiled a list of 25 colleges where the student bodies are both smart … and hot.

Among those making the grade, the University of Virginia comes in at No. 3, followed close behind by Georgetown University at No. 4.

D.C.’s Howard University ranks No. 6, and Virginia’s Liberty University in Lynchburg comes in at No. 18.

College Prowler created the list by averaging together lists of schools where students said the hottest and smartest pupils attended classes, Business Insider reports. The rankings reportedly are based on data points taken from about 370,000 college students who were surveyed.

As a side note, the WTOP newsroom currently employs staffers who are students or alumni of at least five of the schools on the list: UVa., Georgetown, Howard, Boston College and Biola University in La Mirada, Calif.
