… which is pretty darned good. US News has released its first ranking of “Global Universities” and the University of Washington comes in at #14: just behind Princeton, just ahead of Yale, and tied with Michigan and Toronto.
US public institutions in the top 25 (of more than 700 universities that were ranked) include Berkeley (#3), UCLA (#8), Michigan (#14), UW (#14), UCSD (#18), and UCSF (#22).
Important disclaimer: We don’t put much stock in any rankings. We publicize the ones where we look good, we bury the others.
