Rankings can be helpful, deceiving, or sometimes outright silly, but it's awfully nice when they're in your favor.
The London Times ranked the best universities in the world, and the University of Washington ranked 23rd. Harvard ranked first. UW ranked fourth among American public colleges, with Berkeley receiving top honors in that category.
Rankings involved five categories: teaching, research, citations, industry income and international mix.
This makes me almost as proud as when Oregon was voted as having the best college football uniforms in the country.
