Though most of us are probably more likely to check out HarvardFML than Harvard’s homepage, the University’s Web site is a pretty hot link, according to one recently released set of rankings. In fact, the Web site 4 International Colleges and Universities lists Harvard’s as the third most-visited college or university Web site in the world.
Harvard was beaten out by MIT, whose brightly colored admissions site boasts frequent blog posts by admissions officers and current students, and Stanford, whose site showcases plenty of photos of students enjoying the Palo Alto sun.
The Top Ten also featured four other American universities: University of California, Berkeley (5), University of Pennsylvania (7), Cornell University (8), and Yale University (10). The rest of the list included the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (4) and two Chinese schools, Peking University (6) and Shanghai Jiao Tong University (9).
