Maclean's releases 2010 University Rankings issue

November 10, 2010

Maclean's 20th annual University Rankings issue hits newsstands today. McGill University took the number-one spot for the sixth year in a row in the medical-doctoral category. For the third consecutive year, Simon Fraser University placed first in the comprehensive category. Mount Allison University took the top spot among primarily undergraduate universities for the fourth straight year. Maclean's ranks universities on performance measures in 6 broad areas: students/classes, faculty, resources, student support, library, and reputation. This year, the magazine reduced the reputation weighting from 22% to 20%. To correct possible bias, respondents were asked to only rate those institutions about which they have "an informed opinion." In celebration of the University Rankings' 20th anniversary, Maclean's is giving away a $20,000 scholarship. Maclean's News Release | Montreal Gazette
