    Default Global Universities Rankings - U.S. News & World Report

    Just saw this in a news feed and was surprised to see University of Washington ranked #6 in the world, beat out only by Harvard, MIT, Stanford, UC Berkeley, and Oxford UK. Of course there are many criteria for ranking universities, and the source can't help but be biased toward the US, but it was nice to see nonetheless.

    When I was at UW in the 80s (pre-Microsoft) it didn't feel world-class but I expect a lot has changed since then.

    One criteria seems to be 'must speak english' - those with it seem to rank quite high.
    Can't believe Europe would be so poorly represented.

    I'm gonna sprinkle some salt on that before I eat it.

    Like I said, consider the source. Not only European universities under-represented but also Asian I would think.
