Johns Hopkins University is the 11th best university on the planet

If you can solve this brain-buster you deserve to attend the university of your choice. U.S. News and World Report just ranked Johns Hopkins as the 11th best university in the world, a month after calling the institution the 12th best in the country.

While that’s a little ridiculous on the face of it, the rankings reflect two separate sets of criteria. When it comes to the global list, more emphasis is placed on research performance and regional reputation. Things like student retention and selectivity are de-emphasized.

U.S. News and World Report also broke down the rankings by subject. Johns Hopkins ranked 2nd in social sciences and public health as well as in clinical medicine. It’s 4th in immunology, 6th in neuroscience and behavior, and molecular biology and genetics.
