Subject: Why? - you could actually be proud of it
Why do you Canadians bash your only well-known university? Yes, I am talking about McGill.

I mean if you go to Europe or the US, people will almost always now McGill, but they cannot tell you the name of one single other university.

Why don´t you try to promote your only well-nown university yet instead try to bash it?

Every country has one or two such unicversities. US has Harvard; UK has Oxbridge, and Canada has McGill.

(This message is not a part of McGill vs. UofT topics. I do believe that UofT is a top-notch university (maybe better than McGill), but it is a fact that McGill is the most well-nown Canadian university, and is believed to be the most prestigious one.)

I had written that for McGill!! And seriously, I am not a McGillian; I am the Turkish boy, philosophy student, from MIT. (The reason I came back nowadays was because I saw the fake messages about me.)

Oh btw, Yorkie, I heard that York has a top-notch program in Philosophy. A few years ago, they were ranked as number 1 Canadian university in Philosophical Gourmet Report.

Yeah, I see that right now; York is ranked 8th in Canada. There are a few possibilities:

1. York was really number 1, and now fell to number 8, which is still good.

2. Maybe, I heard that number 1 stuff in this forum from our very own Yorkie, hehe :)

Oh btw. I haven´t taken any classes with Chomsky. He is more of a linguist, and he is not really teaching right now although he is listed in the faculty. But he is sometimes the reader of some PhD. theses.

Chomsky is a God!

I would love to take one of his classes.
