“The University of Virginia retained its spot among the nation’s elite institutions of higher education in the 2013 U.S. News & World Report college rankings.

Intact are U.Va.’s string of more than 20 consecutive years in the top 25 listing of best national universities and its rank as the second-best public university, a spot now held for nine straight years.

U.Va. lands this year in a three-way tie for No. 24 among all universities, public and private. It shares the position with the University of California, Los Angeles, and the University of Southern California. Last year, U.Va. shared the No. 25 ranking with two other universities.

Harvard and Princeton universities tied for the top spot overall this year.

The University of California, Berkeley, is again rated the top public university, ranked at No. 21 overall. Only three public universities are in the top 25, and just 16 are among the top 50.”

And a special shoutout to McIntire as well!

“The McIntire School of Commerce tied for fifth with New York University among best undergraduate business schools. McIntire also was ranked No. 5 under the management specialty.”
