The concept of "acceptable" meals is a little shaky in college. Students eat whatever's in the cafeteria and use limited space, time and resources to attempt cooking. During finals, college students get even more shameless, ordering absurd amounts of delivery for both efficiency and comfort.

The online food ordering service GrubHub went through their data to find which schools order the most during finals as compared to the rest of the year. They found that, overall, food deliveries to libraries are 154 percent more likely during final exams than the rest of the year. The schools included in this list are the ones that had enough orders to be statistically analyzed, a GrubHub spokesperson said.

Virginia Tech came out with the biggest spike in finals deliveries -- a 46 percent increase as compared to the rest of the term. The University of Virginia came in at No. 8 with a 25 percent order spike.

The data shows that colleges in New York state are especially keen on finals food deliveries. Three schools in the top 10 are in New York -- Ithaca College, Cornell University and Syracuse University. Pennsylvania schools also make a good showing, with the University of Pittsburgh and University of Pennsylvania coming in at Nos. 7 and 10, respectively.

Here are the official rankings from GrubHub:
