Yet more to brag about. The QC World University Rankings, done for several years now, ranks universities on the planet "using a methodology that evaluates academic reputation, employer reputation, student-to-faculty ratio, as well as international reputation." MIT apparently scored a perfect 100 in each category.
The "2019" rankings are out, and we are #20, the only public US institution in the top 20. (Berkeley didn't even make the top 20 -- it was #27.) OSU was #89 and MSU was #141.
(Usually, this is where I'd make some lighthearted joke, and that would be get me in trouble and draw commentators' attention away from the main point I'm trying to make, so... *drops mike*)
