Top 10 changes compared to 2019 ranking: MIT takes sole possession of the 3rd place with Berkeley dropping into 4th, UIUC rises from 8th to 6th, Princeton drops from 6th to 8th, Stanford rises from 11th to 9th, Wisconsin-Madison drops from 8th to 10th, Illinois-Chicago rises from 13th to 10th. Due to ties, the “top 10” are actually top 12.

Honorable mention: Texas A&M rises from 19th to 16th. Having once set “top 20” as the goal of their “Vision 2020” campaign, they achieved it at least by this measure.
