2007 Maclean's rankings based on 9 fewer factors and only public data

November 8, 2007

Many schools saw their spot in the annual Maclean's university rankings shift this year.  In Manitoba, both the University of Winnipeg and Brandon University moved up the scale -- although uManitoba remained at the bottom of the list.  As a result of an information boycott of the rankings by several institutions, the number of factors used to produce the overall rankings dropped from 22 down to 13: entrance marks, graduation rates and alumni giving were not included this year, and reputation jumped up to represent 22% of the decision.
