Most people are familiar with Ivy League Colleges and have a great idea to be extremely prominent in one. There are many, many other colleges that are very academically rigorous and difficult to get in. The Little Three, Little Ivies and Hidden Ivies are sometimes embarrassing. There are not just similar names, I'm shocked to hear that some parents have never heard of colleges and have not noticed that their daughter's performance has been accepted. Below is an explanation of the different groupings. I hope you can find a list in one place.
The Ivy League consists of 8 schools that compete in the same NCAA Division 1 athletics conference. The schools are Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Columbia, University of Pennsylvania, Brown, Dartmouth and Cornell.
Ivy League schools think of the most prestigious and best ranked universities. According to the United States News and World Report, according to college and university rankings, all Ivy League institutions are ranked at the top 15 and ranked 5th at 5th place.
Located in the northeastern United States of America.  Enrollment covers 4,000 to 14,000 university students, which is larger than most private liberal arts colleges but less than a state university. There are no sports scholarships; financial support is based on need
The Three Little Elite Humanities College, Amherst, Wesleyan and Williams, is an unofficial athletic conference: the nation's three best humanities colleges and it's very difficult to get into the small Three for the first time in 1899, he started to compete in this triangle tournament and in 1920 picked up the "Little Three" nickname. This is contrary to the Universities of the Great Three (Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, HYP) in the Ivy League
NESCAC or the New England Small College Athletic Conference 11 large-scale selective dowry college NCAA Division 3 athletics conference : Amherst, Williams, Wesleyan, Bates, Bowdoin, Colby, Connecticut, Hamilton, Middlebury, Trinity and Tufts, there are rules that include season length, number of tournaments and race after season, no athletic scholarships, financial support is solely based on needs
is an unofficial term or group. This refers to a small group of very selective liberal arts colleges. The list includes all NESCAC (above) colleges, except Connecticut College, Colgate, Haverford, Swarthmore and Vassar. We also note that the Tufts is no longer a small one, the Liberal Arts College, but a larger research university.
As you can see, the colleges listed above are very selective, it is very difficult to get in,. The biggest difference between Ivy League and "Little Ivies" is the athletic team. The Ivy League schools are in the 1st class tournament, which is training and competing throughout the year. The Little Ivy Colleges are in the Division 3 athletics group and are only competing during the sporty seasons.
The NESCAC Division 3 dormitory is an outstanding student athlete competing in two sports competitions, both academic and athletic desires and a great match!
