Duke was ranked No.13 in the U.S. News and World Report's "World's Best Colleges" rankings, which was released last Thursday. The University came behind No.1 Harvard, No.2 Yale, No.5 Caltech, No.8 University of Chicago, No.9 MIT, No.10 Columbia, No.11 University of Pennsylvania, and No.12 Princeton.
It shares the No.13 spot with Johns Hopkin University, and is ahead of No.15 Cornell, and No.17 Stanford.
These rankings differ from the U.S. News National University rankings, released annually in late August. Duke was ranked No.8 in the national rankings last year, sharing the spot with University of Chicago and Columbia.
