Rankings Divorced From Insanity
Shanghai Jiao Tong University in, of course, China released rankings of world universities based upon academic output, and the quality of alumnae. (Full methodology)
I just found this interesting, since if you compare with the US News or P'ton review rankings, you'll find some massive differences. The reason? Basically: US News/P'ton review rank colleges based on things like alumnae giving and so on, rather than the actual academic performance of the individuals at and leaving the place. IE: They rank colleges as if they were charities or country clubs. There's a reason they don't publish their methodology.
