>>7809247 Have to agree, but honestly maybe you should just stop caring about ratings.
You do realize that most of it is based on "surveys" and shit like assuming industrial grants implies more "innovative" research than public grants right? The former is also concerned total monetary value which gives universities recieving American dollar grants an obviously huge boost; the ratings are obviously biased to keep private commercial brand names on top. Actual research quality doesn't play a role at all, often you'll find random third world departments outperform top-tier universities in certain research fields.
And finally the best part of all is that education quality doesn't factor at all, the ratings are for research, not education. The only advantage is that if you're lucky and the world class researcher isn't autistic you might get some solid mentorship, but profs rarely care about undergrads anyway.
