Subject: UofT Faculty Capture Royal Society Awards, cont.
So you think UofT > McGill because of Newsweek. Don´t flatter yourself! This is nothing to be proud of. The ranking does not include Dartmouth, which is Ivy League and has an endowment of $2.7 billion, in the top 100. The endowment is 2.5 greater than UofT´s! Explain to me how any ranking that has UofT 18th and Darmouth not even listed in the top 100 credible! Trinity College has 31 Nobel Prize winners and The Rockefeller Institute has 20. That is 3 and 2 times repsectively more than UofT. Both are also not even included in the list in the top 100! How is that possible? If you do want to play the ranking system game, why don´t you also consider that McGill is #1 by THES, Research Infosource, and MacLean´s. So stuff your UofT snobbery you know where!

Don´t flatter yourself with STJU. You´ll have to do better than that. There are many more reasons why McGill rules:

McGill is ranked number one in the medical doctoral category of Maclean?? 2005 Canadian university rankings, sharing the top spot with the University of Toronto. Outstanding students and a reputation for the highest quality are among the primary strengths.

McGill is ranked the top Canadian school in the Times Higher Education Supplement ranking of the world?? best universities in 2005 and the only Canadian university in the top 25 in the world.

McGill is Research University of the Year 2005 in the medical doctoral category, named by Research InfoSource, Canada?? leading research and development consulting firm. McGill earned 97.3 points out of a possible 100 in its ranking system, the highest score in the country.

McGill students rule:

McGill students have the highest average entering grades of any Canadian university at 88.9 percent.

International students comprise about 19 percent of McGill?Ls student body, making it the most diverse in Canada.

For the last six years, McGill students have won more national prizes on average than their peers at any other university in Canada.

Graduate students make up 26 percent of McGill?Ls 32,700 students, the highest proportion among Canada?Ls top ten research universities.

In 2005, Canadian Interuniversity Sport named 142 McGill athletes as Academic All-Canadians, bringing the University?Ls total to a Canada-leading 1256.

Most funding per faculty member:

According to the most recent Research Infosource figures, full-time professors at McGill lead the country with the highest average research funding, an important indicator of the University?Ls research quality.

Best research output, most Canada research chairs:

On average, full-time professors at McGill publish more peer-reviewed articles than their colleagues at any other university in the country (Research Infosource).

There are 116 McGill faculty who are members of the prestigious Royal Society of Canada.

The Canada Research Chairs program, a federal government program designed to help universities recruit and retain the best faculty, has allotted 157 chairs to McGill, of which McGill has appointed 109. With one CRC for every nine professors, McGill ranks second in Canada in CRC/faculty ratio.

About 90% of students ranked in the top 10% of their high school graduating class. In 2004, the entering first-year class had an average high school grade of 89.3%, the highest in Canada. McGill has produced 126 Rhodes Scholars, more than any other Canadian university.

The most recent survey by the Association of University Technology Managers shows that McGill leads Canada?Ls top ten research universities in US patents issued.

Ernest Rutherford?Ls (McGill) groundbreaking work on the nature of radioactivity was conducted in what was then the Macdonald Physics Building. He won the Nobel Prize in 1908 for this research. McGill?Ls Rutherford Museum houses much of the apparatus the scientist built to conduct his experiments.

McGill is home to Canada?Ls first faculty of medicine, established in 1832.

Canada?Ls largest hospital-based research facility, located at the McGill University Health Centre, has more than 500 researchers and clinicians, nearly 1,000 graduate and postdoctoral students, and close to $100 million in research funding.

UofT is still considered the best in Canada by 99% of the world population.

Go jerk off yourself if you don´t like it.

Does everyone remember the last big debate between UofT and McGill? McGill got slaughtered.

Give it up. UBC is number two, not McGill. McGill can go debate with Queen´s or Waterloo.

LOL! McGill is ranked like 60-something by STJU and 40-something by NEWSWEEK. THES is a fluke. That 50% weighting for reputation by THES is what McGill holds on to.

Yes, I will dismiss a ranking system that does not place a university with 2.5 times the endowment of UofT and two univerisities with 2 and 3 times more noble prize winners than UofT in the top 100 while UofT gets 18th.

Do you think you´re better? You dismiss what I have to say without providing any arguments. The best you can say is McGill students are crackheads. Very sad. At least I tell you my reasons for dismissing a ranking system. I invite you do the same ...

Why would UofT waste it´s time arguing with a has-been like McGill? UBC is the new number two. McGill can argue with someone else.

McGill has tried so hard to be loved by the U.S. and now UofT killed them in a national U.S. ranking.

What are you going to say when THES ranks UofT ahead of McGill this year? You do realize that McGill has been declining in the ranking and UofT has been soaring in the rankings. But, even if UofT didn´t pass McGill, who cares? THES dedicates 50% of it´s ranking to reputation! How gay is that? Isn´t productivity and quality more important to a University?

Eitherway, McGill is a HAS-BEEN!
