Bottom line

Subject: Bottom line
A recently released ranking by the prominent British publication THES has named McGill the best university in Canada. The rankings were based on five different factors. The most heavily weighted was a survey of 1,300 academics from 88 countries which asked respondents to name top institutions in their field of expertise. The rankings also took into account the number of citations per faculty member, faculty-to-student ratios, percentages of international students and percentages of international faculty. Strong performances in all five measures confirm what most observers have long suspected: that McGill is in the position to which all Canadian universities aspire. A reputation for being the best in Canada acts as a magnet for the most talented students and staff.

Any other publication that ranks McGill as the top university in Canada?

I can think many publications that DON´T.

Newsweek
Shanghai Jiaotong
Research Infosource
Scientific Thomson

Respond back when you can find another publication that puts McGill at the top.

Thank you.

The only bottom line I see is that you are desperate to make McGill look good.

Nice try.

THES is the most trusted one among academics. All others are bullshit except for Research Inf. But Research Inf. ranked McGill 1st, by calling it the research univ. of the year.
Sci. Thomson´s rankings are not real rankings; they ranked based on research on "their" publications.
That Chinese university´s rankings, on the other hand, are a joke. How can you trust the rankings of a university which is not even ranked in top 500 by THES? Plus, that univ is a crappy Asian university, not a good one. hahaha, UofT fanboy looks for Asian help.

Research Infosource had named McGill "Research University of the Year" in past years, but this year (2006), the award went to:

Toronto (Medical/Doctoral)
Waterloo (Comprehensive)
Lakehead (Undergraduate)

THES is the "most trusted" source???

According to who???

Nice try, again, idiot.

It´s the most trusted source for you because it´s the ONLY ONE that puts McGill tops.

THES is most trusted by academics???

THES is a NEWSPAPER BASED in LONDON that just reports on issues related to higher education. It is OWNED by TSL Education, which was previously owned by NEWS INTERNATIONAL, owned by Rupert Murdoch.

It´s analagous to Maclean´s, except Maclean´s doesn´t do world rankings.

Shanghai Jiaotong University rankings are actually proudly cited by Canadian universities themselves. Check out the websites of these universities. I know UBC, Alberta, and McMaster have all referred to these rankings.

THES ranks Peking University ahead of McGill. In fact, # 15.

I wouldn´t mind Asian help here.
