Many of you no doubt perked up in late August when the U.S. News & World Report college rankings were released. Others pretended they were too cool for those rankings, and then snuck in a peek anyways.
Well, now, the Times of London has released its own rankings, and, unlike the America-only U.S. News rankings, this version includes universities from all over the world. The Times ranks Columbia 10th overall, and 6th among American universities (behind Harvard, Yale, Caltech, MIT and UChicago).
Overall, Harvard remained in first for the fifth consecutive year, followed by Yale. The rest of the Ivy League is ranked as follows: Penn 11th, Princeton 12th, Cornell 15th, Brown 27th, and Dartmouth bringing up the rear at 54th.
