Georgetown ranked 166th by QS World Universities' top 300 international colleges

Despite that recent, minor international incident, Georgetown University has a lot going for it: Computer geeks, future politicians, foreign students love it there, and the food's pretty good, too (according to Newsweek, anyway). Which is why we're a little baffled about the school's ranking on a new list of the world's top 300 colleges.

Georgetown placed 166th on the 2011/2012 QS World University Rankings, dropping 11 spots since last year and putting it right behind the University of Ghent. (That school is in Belgium, and describes itself as a "socially committed and pluralistic university.")

The real rankings — by which we mean the highly controversial U.S. News & World Report rankings — are being released exactly one minute after midnight tonight, at which point Georgetown students and administrators may commence lamenting their inability to crack the top 150.
