dude, 50% of your ranking is pretty retarded.

30% for reputation?

20% for int. and out of prov. students?

why not concentrate on more stuff related to learning, like classes taught by tenured faculty, class sizes, faculty awards...

^ If he concentrates on things that are related to learning, McGill would not be #1. Here, I had compile a list that I believe relates well to learning and outcome. Except for Student Retention, the points are evenly distributed at 15% for each indicator to minimize bias.

Student Retention: 10%
Proportion who graduate: 15%
Classes taught by Tenured faculty 15%
Student awards: 15%
Faculty with PhD: 15%
Schlorships & Bursaries: 15%
Library Acquisitions: 15%

1 Queen?s
2 Western
3 Toronto
4 McGill

Nice rankings...

UofT fobs keep giving stuff like library acquisition, tenured faculty, etc., which has NOTHINg to do with how good a university is.

That is for sure!!! UofT is seriously nothing! When you look at our of province students or something like reputation or entering grade (indications that show how elite or reputable a univ is), you can immediately see that UofT is sometimes not even in top 10. The thing that I have difficulty with understanding is why they are even known so well in Canada. They are seriously just one big nothing. I think that all they have is their population and thus they can make more lobbying since they have more graduates.

Is it too much to ask for a university to have classes taught by the best and most experienced (tenured) professors? Is fair to insist a university keep its library up to date with new acqusitions?

As a student, I´m paying big bucks for my education. It´s all coming out of my own pocket. I´d want more than just another famous brand.

"Tenured" does not mean "best." Most of the time, a crappy instructor can easily get tenure from a crappy university while even top instructors have difficulty with getting tenure from top universities.

Crappy instructors don´t get tenure. They get fired.

You people are bashing UofT because it has a lower entering average, what about Waterloo and MacMaster, they´ve got even lower entering average. Why am I not hearing anyone bashing them?

Entering grade becomes moot once you´re in. The only thing that matters after you´re in, is the learning.

Waterloo and MacMaster are two of the top ten schools in Canada according to companies´ CEOs, corporate recruiters and high school councilors, etc. Are you telling me they are all crazy?
