Subject: Ontario's McGill (cont.2)
I heard someone say that UofT is the McGill of Ontario. Is that true? Is UofT really that good? I never heard of this school before!

McGill and uOFt are the top two universities in Canada. No other universities even comes close, academically speaking. They have the best reputation, attract the top faculty and students, awesome research, amazing graduates, top programs. But, McGill is still better than U of T overall. Other great universities include Queen?s, Western, Waterloo, and UBC.

Yeah, UofT is a good university, if not comparable to McGill. Like, let?s say McGill is the Harvard or Canada, UofT would be the Harvard of Saudi Arabia.

UofT is OK. I would say like McGill is the top. And then after some gap, Queens comes. And then there is a big gap, and UofT comes. So yeah, as in McLeans rankings...

wow, some of you kids are way too obsessed with trying to change peoples positive perceptions about u of t. i remember i was looking at old posts from years ago on this forum and some kid replied to all the threads having to do with uoft and bashed them.. really, isn?t that sad? the same kid was also replying to threads about mcgill and posting messages of how great mcgill is.. you figure it out..

and it?s funny how mcgill kids said macleans was bullshit when u of t placed first for the past 12 years, and now that mcgill is first and u of t was bumped down to third (for obvious reasons), macleans is a great source! lol.. damn..

you kids need to face reality.. mcgill is weak in engineering and business, which is definately not the case with any ?top? school.. contrast that with uoft, which is strong in all areas..

when did mcgill kids say macleans? is bullshit? seems like it?s the uoft kids who are calling it bullshit now and calling it the gold standard before last year!

i think you?re getting mixed up with uoft. uoft is weak in engineering and business. York has already surpassed it in business and the arts. waterloo is the place to be for engineering in ontario. why do you think uoft is third place this year? it?s simply not in the same league as the top two, mcgill and queen?s.

If your from a upper-middle to upper-class "white" Ontario family, your first choice is Queen?s for an undergraduate degree. The second choice would be McGill. UofT would not even be considered because the school is too "FOB" for them.

I saw this post, and wanted to reply... But too sad that the UofT kid got pissed off. He says McGill kid go tout of control, but indeed he got out of control. He keeps posting spams... I can now understand the quality of UofT; it is prolly like this; only dumb pple are UofT students..

NO!!! That´s wrong. Queens is the McGill of Ontario!!! Queens ranked just behind McGill, not UofT. It was like:

1. McGill
2. Queens

____HUGE GAP___

3. UofT

I agree with the last post above. MacLeans rankings were indeed like that:

1. McGill
2. Queens
3. UofT

lol.. this kid carries on fake conversations with himself..

since when did macleans become so popular with mcgill kid?

12 years of uoft in first, and then they lead a boycott against the ranking and get a bunch of universities to follow them (excluding mcgill and queen´s until the very last minute) and then they magically get bumped down to third! lol.. explain to me how that´s possible when uoft has gained funding and mcgill has lost funding in the past year?

my opinion is that mcgill kid knows that uoft is better and is posting all these messages not only to convince others that mcgill is better, but more importently, to convince himself!

because when it comes down to it, mcgill has nothing on uoft except a slightly higher entering average.. if uoft really wanted to bump it up, it could.. however mcgill can´t easily make its business program good or it´s engineering program respectable.. those things take time and money..

bottom line, if you want a good party school with virtually no drinking age, go to mcgill.. but, if you want to be challenged academically and be surrounded by many of the top minds in the country and the world, come to uoft.

yep uoft joined a boycott but so did Queen´s, and guess what, they jumped from 5th to 2nd place! UofA also boycotted and gets top place in overall reputation, UBC joins and sees no change in their ranking.

uoft led the boycott? LOLLLL show me some proof buddy, ´cause you´re talking out of your ass! and according to this article, it was Mcmaster that led the boycott:
http://www.hamiltonspectator.com/breakingnews/breakingnews_1514464.html

you have NO excuses, uoft is a has-been. And don´t make me laugh, uoft´s business and eng. programs are mediocre at best. ppl in ontario know better to go to York or Waterloo respectively. and let´s not forget York also has the top law program in the country. really, why would anyone go to uoft? it has no reputation internationally, and now according to maclean´s, even the UofA has a better rep in canada. face it, the top two are Mcgill and Queen´s.

Do you have any idea why UofT and the other universities boycotted Macleans? It´s because of the retarded methodology. You can´t honestly look at it and say that it´s respectable. If you were on this board last year you´d have seen 99% of UofT students were calling Macleans bullshit back then too. You can´t judge an university by sat surveys - at least, you can´t judge a GOOD university by sat surveys. I´m sure all the UOIT engineers are happier with their 3.0 GPAs than their UofT counterparts who struggle for 2.0. Does UOIT produce better engineers? You can claim McGill is better than UofT and it´s difficult to prove or disprove that because they´re both good schools, but claiming Macleans is a reputable ranking is not something a good university student would do.

^ummmmm...no. only a retarted high school kid like you would trust maclean´s and base it on what university to attend.. anybody in their right mind knows uoft has the best overall academic reputation. stupid kid, don´t be so stupid, queen´s and mcgill don´t even come close to uoft...and wtf uofa....this school came out of no where. they weren´t even that big. they probably paid maclean´s...who knows?

awesome, couldn´t agree more man. except uoit is a 4.0 not 3.0....

a uoft student has to work his/her ass off to get a 2.0+ and a uoit student could walk into a midterm/final half asleep with 2 minutes of study and pull a 4.0 like that. this does not prove that they are better or have smarter students but merely retarted profs who treat their students as if they were in gr.2

^ Tony Keller of Macleans has a hate-on for UofT. Anybody here who reads Macleans in the dentist or doctor´s office will see one of his sarcastic pieces everytime UofT makes a press release. He´s sensitive about people criticizing his employer.

The point here...

Maclean´s hates U of T for being the ring leader for the other ten universities opting out, costing them $$$. And in return, attacks it by placing it third to make it look "sort of" realistic. They can´t obviously place U of T near the bottom. So, they place it third. Understand, for those retards who seem to have difficulty comprehending this simple concept. U of T has always been Canada´s best and will continue to be.

First of all, I can´t believe that this kid is saying that UofT business and engineering is mediocre! I understand the kid is a troll, but come on! Sure Schulich might be better than UofT for business, but Schulich is also the best in Canada and one of the top business schools in the world. That doesn´t mean that UofT isn´t still one of the top business schools in Canada. And as far as engineering, I think everyone knows that Waterloo and UofT are tops. This is common knowledge. It´s like saying UofT science and medicine are mediocre. In the end, UofT is strong in ALL areas, while McGill is weak in two major fields: business and engineering. Like I said, no ´top´ school is weak in these areas (or in any area for that matter).

Just like someone mentioned above, Macleans has an axe to grind against UofT now. It´s more than obvious if you´d read any of their recent stuff. Also, they didn´t even use new information for this years issue, they recycled old info. Look:

lol i swear, uoft kids are now conspiracy theorists. they´re making up so much shit that it´s hard to take them seriously. so you say maclean´s is somehow mad at uoft? let´s see, shouldn´t they also be mad at Queen´s or Alberta? yet Queen´s is now 2nd place, up from fifth place, and Alberta is tops in overall reputation. then you guys say UofT "led" the boycott. what a bunch of BS! provide some proof/evidence that this is the case. guess what, i gave you a link to an article that stated that Mcmaster led the boycott. you guys have NO EXCUSES. uoft has sunken to third place, accept this reality and move on.

and it´s funny you call me a troll, when you´re the real troll. saying McGill is weak in business and engineering? wtf?? buddy, McGill is the top university in canada and is strong in ALL areas. unlike uoft which is weak in both business and engineering. you´ve got the two mixed up. anyone in ontario knows where to go for business: York. if anything, they´d also rather go to Queen´s, after all, it is the number two school here. as for engineering, don´t make me laugh, Waterloo is light years ahead of uoft. even Mac is better.

lastly, sure, some of the data is old, but macleans contends that the old data that was used don´t vary much year to year anyway, and that much of the data that was used was public. just accept it: 1. McGill, 2. Queen´s
