UVa academics are nothing special if looking from outside the U.S.

The Shanghai world rankings are what many folks outside the U.S. pay attention to. Stanford is ranked as the World's second best university. UVa has been in steady decline as illustrated by the graph in the webpage linked below.

These rankings matter. I came to UVA as an international student in the early 1980's knowing nothing about the school. I got an (unranked) list of the top 30 or so universities from the U.S. embassy in my home country. From there, I narrowed it down to the schools which were the least expensive: UVA, Berkeley and UNC. (UVA was a real bargain back then...).
