Only one ranking system currently scores UofT higher than McGill. It is also a highly questionale one (Academic Ranking of World Universities; Institute of Higher Education, Shanghai Jiao Tong University) showing major inconsistencies from year-to-year. Times Higher Education supplement, which scores McGill higher, is a trusted source in the UK, used there by government officials to determine educational policy. You are an idiot!

Now let us examine objectively each fantasy coming out of UofT:

1) Has the most publications after Harvard. True, but let us be realistic. Is UofT the second best university in the world? Not! Number of publications does not mean anything, UofT could be publishing in crap journals. In terms of impact factors, UofT can only provide evidence of where they exceed in certain categories. Being the best in some categories does not mandate having the highest impact factor overall.

2) Has most awards than other university in Canada. True. That is becuase UofT invests massive amounts of money recruiting top-notch researchers. The Maple Leafs also hires mostly star players. Are they good? No! If you look at these professors, you will notice that most of them have had >15 years of research experience in another university. You cannot say that these awards are based necessarily on their research carried-out at UofT. Other universities in Canada, like McGill and UBC, make top-notch researchers; UofT hires them. In fact, UofT scores lower than McGill consistently when it comes to success of alumini.

Can I ask you a question? How old are you and what school are you at or are planning on attending.

Okay,

1. Nobody alluded to UofT being the second best University in the World. Obviously the quality of an institution is not soley based on number of publications published. However, it is a ONE major indication of quality.

The source that was provided to you outlining the categories in which UofT has the highest impact is the ONLY report of its kind. Why does it only list those fields? Because it is only those fields which tend to have journal publications. The report was done by Thomson Corporation (owner is richest Canadian), so you know its accurate and well respected. This isn´t Research Infosource or whatever the name is.

As far as being the best overall, well you can draw your own conclusions. Just be sure to base your conclusions on evidence.

2. It´s obvious that you loathe UofT. Otherwise, you wouldn´t be trying so hard, and making these ridiculous and baseless accusations. The evidence is out there. UofT faculty have won 25% of national awards, yet they only make up 7% of the nations faculty. Do you understand what this means? These are awards won AT that institution. They keep track of which institutions collect the most awards. If you refuse to believe this because you aren´t man enough to face the truth, then so be it. As long as people with half a brain can comprehend what this means, thats all that matters. Whether or not an ignorant and lonely high school kid from Turkey can understand this means squat.

1. There are only 5 subjects in science? Are you on crack?
2. You can distinguish the contribution of two universities for life-time awards given to professors who worked in two different universites? Are you on crack?
