Subject: McGill #1 Final !!!!
Face it! UofT highest number of publications. Yes. Highest overall impact. Yes. Problem: when you take size into account, UofT not #1. McGill most publication per faculty, highest impact per faculy, and awarded more research per faculty (Research Infosource). SJTU and Newsweek does not take this account. You complain that THES is problematic because it focuses on reputation. What the hell is wrong with that? Have you considered that reputation reflects what comes out of a university? News for UofT, the world´s view of you is a more accurate representation of what you guys think !!!!! Nobody outside of Canada has heard and cares about you. Why? Maybe, just maybe, you guys are not as good as you guys think you are !!!!

Also, no ammo. Well consider the following facts (all cited):

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.

Can´t you read above? As you can see there is no reason for McGill to feel insecure. In fact, the UofT students in this forum are the ones that are insecure for not being able to argue constructively. The best you can do: McGill insecure, McGill cry babies, McGill inferior, McGill sucks in business and engineering. Well, tell me how? You won´t and are unable to! The only thing you can come up with is most publications overall and most number of publications in high impact factor in several categories according to Thompson. I say there is problem with that because McGill is in fact more in both per faculty. You can´t understand this concept. Why? Not becuase you´re dumb, but you cannot accept that McGill is better. The facts are there.

I dare say that universities with a city´s name in them will have a better intn´l rep than somewhere like "mcgill" or "dalhousie", irrespective of how well they might be viewed within Canada. The typical non-Canadian has never heard of McGill but they have heard of Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, &c.

I´d agree McGill is the top uni in Canada if it wasn´t for the fact its been declining for years, in a declining city, in a declining province, that can´t even muster enough anglophone students to go into post-secondary education and so attracts New England students with mediocre SAT scores.

Still a good school and my next choice to UofT. In 20 years though will you still be boasting about being an alumni of a has-been institution?

^ they have heard of McGill.

Few people outside of Canada has heard of Calgary. As for Ottawa, they would only know that from naming the capitals of countries in geography class when they were kids.

You get real !!!

^ If you say so. Frankly, I´m not so insecure about my school´s rep to argue it further; but then again, my school is tops and I don´t need to get red in the face defending it :)

Then we agree. I agree with you that UofT is tops (with a ´s´). I say McGill is top (without a ´s´). Your Freudian slip reveals all !!!
