Statistics behind love is back! This time our Chief Data Scientist sifted through over 68,000 matches we made so far to answer the question: Does school matter when it comes to dating?
YES! After analyzing the LIKE or PASS choices of members from the 10 most represented schools on Coffee Meets Bagel, we realized the answer is Yes. A lot, actually, especially for University of Michigan & Stanford kids. They were 17% and 13% more likely to LIKE Bagels from their Alma Mater vs. non-Alma Mater Bagels. Ironically, they also turn out to be two of the most popular schools, being LIKED by others 42% & 41% of the time! I guess some things never change: Popular kids still prefer to hang out within their own groups!
Some other random details we found:
- Male & Female? Preference towards their Alma Mater was consistently displayed by both male and female.
- School with most popular Gents: Yale gents who were LIKED 39%
- School with most popular Ladies: Univ. of Michigan followed by Stanford ladies. They were both LIKED close to 50% of the time!
