Subject: Wow! People are obsessed with UofT!
UofT was ranked first place for the past 12 years, they start a boycott agains Maclean´s, they get a bunch of Universities to pull out, and now they end up third. Seems kinda weird, but whatever.

Notice how the big news isn´t that McGill is in first, but that UofT isn´t in first?

...there´s a reason for that.

not weird seeing how McGill tied UofT last year in Macleans and was prepared to overtake it. it was pretty obvious this year was the year they´d take the no. 1 spot, a spot they´ve held many years ago. you can say it´s the boycott, i can say it was clear it was going to happen. and isn´t it weird that UofT decides to join (or lead, as one poster suggested) a boycott the same year it has to share its no.1 spot? very strange indeed.

and i mention UofT because the fanboys who go there are pretty delusional and need to see something like this.

and just to be fair, i´ll also add that yes, even this macleans ranking is irrelevant, because it´s the REPUTATION that matters (has it sunken in yet?). While it´s nice that McGill gets the top spot in Macleans, McGill doesn´t really benefit that much. It is, and will always be seen as the top university in this country anyway. UofT, which sinks to 3rd place, won´t be seen in a more negative light. after all, it isn´t very known anyway, so how can people view it any differently?

UofT has been the leader of the ranking for 12 years, and there´s no major change in the school in the past year, most other ranking out there have UofT amongst the tops in most areas.

What other signs did they gave you that would drop dramatically? Besides being the leader (yes they were obvious) boycott?

I think this whoever inferior complex guy is getting all so psyched up because UofT dropping in Macleans, needs to get 1 thing clear. UofT doesn´t revolve around Maclean´s, Maclean´s revolves around McGill.

Maclean´s is magazine and they do this ranking for obvious reason, to get idiots psyched up, and more $$ in their pockets.

just to add 1 more thing, Maclean´s doesn´t just revolve around McGill because Maclean´s can easily crown McGill no.1 since UofT stood up for 20 schools and point out how shitty Macleans is, Maclean´s also revolves around all the schools in Canada.

You think Macleans care more about the university, or the universities care about Macleans more?

The answer, is obvious, to most of us at least.

I don´t know what country you live in, but here in Canada, 95% of the people know UofT is the best University in Canada.

And you have to admit that UofT dropping to third place after the shit it started is a little fishy. UofT has gotten stronger in the past 12 years, while McGill has lost funding. It makes no sense. Read the editorials in Maclean´s, and you´ll see that they are obviously pissed at UofT.

Also, UBC deserves to be higher as well. UBC is heads above Queen´s.

I doubt any UofT students are really going to care! It´s obvious what happened here.

U of T = University of Trash

Get rid of UTM & UTSC and maybe you´ll have a decent U.

"I don?t know what country you live in, but here in Canada, 95% of the people know UofT is the best University in Canada. "

so much so that McGill and Waterloo consistently beat UofT in the Maclean´s Reputation survey. just deal with it, UofT is has no reputation at home or abroad.
