Subject: UT Research University of the Year
According to Research Infosource, U of T is Canada´s Research University of the Year (2006)

Not only is UT Canada´s largest research university, it is Canada´s most research intensive.

Where´s that McGill kid now who nicely quoted from Research Infosource about McGill´s number one ranking in 2005??

The same source that kid used to back up McGill´s research intensity is being used against him.

In McGill´s defense, they never claim to be the best research university. Their law, med, and most grad programs are 2nd tier but they focus on undergrad. McGill offers one of the best liberal arts undergrad experiences in Canada. They´re program selection isn´t wide and they face competition from Concordia but McGill students know they´ll be able to coast on their school´s reputation.

I think you´ve got McGill and UofT confused.

UofT indeed has a very good liberal arts program. But their med, law and engineering programs are 2nd tier. And they have to face stiff competition from York right around the corner. York has superior law and business schools (check Canadian Lawyer Magazine ranking and any business school ranking like Forbes), and their eng. program is nothing compared to Waterloo´s. Unfortunately, UofT students don´t really have a reputable degree so all they get is a certificate that signifies a mediocre education, unless it´s from liberal arts.

^ LOL

Whatever, opinions vary :)

I do suspect Schulich beats Rotmans for biz but you should talk to law students before calling UofT law second tier. Unless you´re studying French Common Law, UofT is the place to be.

I´ll compare UofT and McGill´s liberal arts, sure. But compare UofT with York? You actually think York is a better degree? Get real. They have some good programs but a York degree isn´t more prestigious than any other Ontario degree.

Hahah, UofT haters can´t even take a compliment. That´s pathological for you. Do they teach big words like that at York?
