When you say that Vanderbilt exaggerates their academic excellent, exactly what do you mean?
They are an elite private AAU member, which means they spend something like 3 times as much on instructional expenditures as do public AAU schools like UF, Texas, Virginia, Illinois, Michigan, and Cal-Berkeley. This means that their students are working in a far superior learning environment, which, in fact, is the major factor in Academic Excellence from any perspective.
Do you mean something stupid like UF has more National Merit Scholars, or some other idiotic rating think like US New Does in their Moronic America's Best Colleges. All of those sorts of ratings are utterly worthless. There really is only one worthwhile rating of colleges, and that is the National Research Council's docedeciennial rating of Doctoral Programs.
So, on what is your seemingly unsupportable statement based?
