China's two most prestigious national universities, Tsinghua and Peking, broke into the top 100 for the first time...

As you could see, 8 of the top 10 are American universities, with the other two being British.

And 15 of the top 20 are Americans.

That is why, despite all the "educational problems" we have, the world's truly "best and brightest" still dream of coming to America to get their college education, from the BA to the PhD and MD levels...
