Today’s rankings …


Washington Monthly ranks UW 7th among all U.S. “national universities.”  (The criteria are “social mobility,” “research,” and “service” – UW got killed in the latter category.)

Forbes ranks UW among the top 10 public colleges and universities in the nation for its undergraduate programs.  (The ranking includes both public and private colleges and universities … and it ranks Pomona above Princeton … so caveat emptor …)

Movoto ranks Seattle as America’s hardest working city.  (Doubtless due to the combination of coffee and precipitation …)

Forbes ranks Seattle among the world’s 15 most inventive cities.  (Suggesting that hard work isn’t everything …)

Affordable Colleges ranks UW #11 in the nation in terms of “bang for the buck.”
