Strange Coincidence -- Or Is My Blog Shaping the Educational Landscape of Canada?

So I mention on my blog that I'm talking to someone about moving to McGill, and suddenly McGill is the highest ranked school in the country (tied with U of T, which has held the top spot for the past 10 years). Coincidence?

It took you long enough to realize the Bethcentricity of the world.

Sheesh.

It's like we had to write a book or something...

;)

Beth, do me a favor sometime and mention on your blog that I am the preferred employee in the United States when April, 2007 rolls around.

Windsor is still dogshit as far as the rankings go?

HMP said...

Yes, Windsor is da shit.

Sarah said...

Ahh...Guelph is still locked in battle with Waterloo and UVic. We came third this year (first the previous two).

Yeah McGill!! Anything that Dave is interested in there? And where does UBC rank?

Beth said...

McMaster dropped from 8th to a dismal 11th... ouch!

UBC ranks fourth, same as last year. Apparently UBC admin shouldn't have abandoned their plan to manipulate class sizes for the sole purpose of improving their MacLeans ranking just 'cuz a few bleeding hearts thought it was "unethical."

I want someone to tell me what the topped rank university in the US is.

Beth said...

Don't you have a magazine in the US that makes up university rankings based on bogus criteria? For shame!

HMP said...

Yeah, but it's all about, "This university is best for this, and this university is best for that." Dammit, why can't we just have a university that's the best of the best at everything?

For the most part, MSU was the best at producing binge drinkers, and from what I can see so far, U of M is good at producing critical skills earned through confusion.
