My point, part facetious and part utterly serious, was just another reminder that this is an international list and that parochial details need explanation. I doubt that many list members inside the USA do _not_ know what you meant by NRC -- now explained -- but some outside may well not know.

I would say, without ANY universities outside the US. The National
Research Council arguably has no business ranking UK universities, you
guys have your own RAE system for this, with its own perks. It does
not address the global competitiveness issue (as Chinese rankings do),
either. Rather, it is supposed to answer questions like, "If a chair
of a Stat department wants to increase the diversity of the faculty,
what programs does he or she want to emulate?"
