BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland, College Park are both on the new U.S. News & World Report list of the Best Global Universities.

Hopkins is tied for 10th place with Yale and University of Washington in Seattle, while UMD is ranked 50th.

Their scores are 83.4 and 71.8, respectively.

“Hopkins is a great school. I mean, I don’t think anyone doesn’t believe that,” said Hopkins student Cole Douglass.

Students told WJZ, the reputation of the Hopkins name played a big role in their decision to enroll.

“I was deciding between a few other schools, but I think the Johns Hopkins’ name is definitely going to get me far in life. I really want a job after I graduate,” Julia Menardy said.

U.S. News says it looked at 1,200 schools and ranked each school on the list based on 13 indicators and weights, such as their global and regional research reputation, publications and international collaboration.

Out of 74 countries, the United States had the most universities ranked in the top 10, with Harvard coming in at number one.

Last month, U.S. News and World Report released their national best colleges. Johns Hopkins, UMD: College Park and UMBC were all in the top 200.
