"Stanford and UC Berkeley alumni are accustomed to ranking among the world's best, but another trophy for the case never hurts.

Recently, both Bay Area universities were rated in the top 10 schools in the world by the Center for World University Rankings. CWUR evaluated 1,000 universities worldwide based on the quality of education, alumni employment, quality of faculty, publications, influence, citations, broad impact and patents.

The Bay Area was well-represented in the rankings. Including Cal and Stanford's prestigious top 10 status, UCSF just missed the top 25 coming in at 26."
