Historic Georgetown University scored 22. The Washington, D.C., school tied with two in California: University of California - Berkeley and University of Southern California.

Elsewhere in Virginia, the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, hit number 38, tied with Boston College and University of California - Davis.

D.C.'s George Washington University and University of Maryland - College Park tied with University of Connecticut at number 63.
