I READ with interest your article about the World Wide Web (“The Internet sucks,” Society, Oct. 30). I agree that most of what’s there is a waste of cyberspace. I think the Internet is right up there with television, and even radio, in terms of promises not kept.

Three weeks after exploding a nuclear bomb, a formerly defiant Kim Jong Il has agreed to sit down and discuss a diplomatic end to his weapons program. North Korea’s surprise about-face, which came after an informal meeting with American and Chinese officials, means the Communist regime will rejoin the six-nations disarmament talks after a year of boycotting the process.

The latest Liberal House seating plan has four of the leadership contenders sitting next to the Bloc. In fact, each shares a two-person desk with a separatist. When Stéphane Dion helped push the controversial Clarity Act through Parliament, he and his family required RCMP bodyguards.

Will everybody calm down about Belinda Stronach if somebody refers to a Liberal man as a dog? All righty then: here’s Jean Lapierre, Paul Martin’s hand-picked Quebec lieutenant in 1990 and 2004, returning to his strategy of constitutional blackmail like a dog to its vomit.

'This concept that high school students are systematically ill-prepared has a whiff of old fogeyism about it’
DAVID NAYLOR, PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO, TALKS TO KATE FILLION ABOUT RANKINGS, MONEY, CLASS SIZE AND MERYL STREEP

Q: How do you think our high schools are doing in terms of preparing students for university? A: Virtually every generation of professors is convinced secondary schools are deteriorating. I suppose this is inevitable, this view that, “Well, I struggled off to an extraordinarily rigorous school through 10-foot-high snowdrifts, fending off polar bears and wolves on the way.”

From campus food to life in residence; from the benefits of education to costs at each school; from where your MP went to university (many didn’t) to the growing appeal of colleges and U.S. schools—it’s our largest universities issue ever. Inside, we reveal the country's best universities as chosen by students, by the experts, and according to Maclean’s 16th annual university rankings.

THE BEST INVESTMENT MONEY CAN BUY
A university degree spells a lifetime of better job prospects and higher income. It has also become the minimum qualification for many jobs. So just go already.

If you were to suffer the misfortune of spending time in Canada’s prison system, and while there were brave enough to start asking your cellmates for their CVs, you’d notice an interesting trend: almost none of the wards of the Correctional Service of Canada has a university degree.

Are you the kind of student who does well enough—maybe even extremely well—in school, but likes a bit of practical application mixed with your theory? Instead of sitting in an amphitheatre with hundreds of first-year students, would you prefer small classes, and to really get to know your professor, as well as all your classmates?

I want to study in America

JULIA McKINNELL
“What’s better?” asks James O’Connor, a father of two teenage daughters. “An education in Canada or at one of these U.S. places?” A generation ago, when he was in high school, O’Connor never gave a second thought to the States. But now, with his eldest daughter in Grade 11 at a private school in Toronto, he’s “become interested,” and he’s started to give serious thought to the pros and cons of a Canadian versus American education—particularly an Ivy League education.

First, the bad news. Your writing, basic computational skills, and critical thinking abilities are—there’s no way to sugar-coat this—abysmal. Math profs grumble about students who pull out a calculator to get the answer to 3x7. English profs complain about students who can’t compose an outline for a four-page paper.

Shortly before the University of Manitoba’s Pembina Hall opened for dinner one evening last spring, Matt Soprovich led a group of students in a march to the steps of the U of M’s administration building. Wearing T-shirts emblazoned with the letters “F.U.” (Food service Unfulfilled) and carrying empty dining hall trays, they wanted to deliver a message: they were sick and tired of the food.

The title character of Tom Wolfe’s I Am Charlotte Simmons is a country bumpkin genius, who at the novel’s beginning is utterly romantic about her impending first year at university. As in most literary endeavours describing university life, Charlotte encounters the usual gang of sexually charged boozies, rich kids, nerds and outcasts.

The modern university final examination has a long pedigree in the West. Paris and Bologna, Oxford and Cambridge, these are the places that provided the sinew for our universities. Medieval students concentrated on the classics, mathematics, and, of course, theology, the so-called queen of the sciences.

In his book The World is Flat, Thomas Friedman wrote that he wanted to put every man and woman on a campus. He meant American men and women, but the unqualified value of a university degree is an article of faith about which Canadians are every bit as pious as Americans.

JUST AS THEY HAVE FOR DECADES, students Still roll out of bed, late for class, throw on sweatpants and go—only now those jogging pants cost a hundred bucks and have words like “Juicy” written across the bum. An informal survey of style at the University of Toronto finds that hippies still dress in Guatemalan patterns and backpacks are still too big—although more than half the students seem to be moving to one-shoulder bags for laptops.

While statistics are an important part of evaluating a university, they tell only part of the story. What do people in the know really think about how universities are doing? Just as surveys of students and recent graduates provide an important piece of the picture, so too does the opinion of those whose professions put them in a position to form opinions about how well universities are meeting the needs of students and producing graduates ready to embark on successful careers.

The quality and dedication of students have an enormous impact on the learning environment. Maclean’s takes two measures of entering grades, and calculates the proportion of first-year students who return for a second year—fullor part-time.

For undergraduates, the classroom is the front line of learning. Maclean’s takes account of the percentage of students in each of six distinct class-size ranges. And, since tenure is a significant measure of a faculty member’s worth, Maclean’s measures the commitment of universities to placing tenured and tenure-stream professors at the head of first-year classes.

The calibre of the faculty is vital to the students' own development. Maclean’s calculates the percentage of faculty with a Ph.D. It also measures their success at winning national awards, as well as peer-adjudicated grants from the three main federal granting agencies: the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.

Libraries are a motherlode of information, and a major study spot on campus. Maclean’s measures the percentage of the operating budget committed to library funding, as well as the collection’s size and currency. Given the shift from a traditional model to an electronic access model, Maclean’s captures spending on electronic resources in both library expenses and acquisitions.

Which universities get top marks for going the distance with their students? This measure juxtaposes two sets of figures and identifies those universities with the greatest difference between the two. The first set includes measures related to the incoming student: average entering grade and the proportion of students entering with averages of 75 per cent or higher.

“What’s your exit strategy?” Tom Arnold demands from Arnold Schwarzenegger as he’s pursued by terrorist goons in the movie True Lies. “I’m going to walk right out the front gate,” Schwarzenegger calmly replies. Exit strategy: an American entrepreneurial term from the fast and loose 1990s, implying do your business and get out quick before something bad happens.

But this year’s will be worth watching for more than the usual forecasts on economic growth (likely to disappoint) and the federal surplus (likely to astound, again). Just as important—or more, when it comes to sorting out what the next election is going to be fought over—will be the signal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty sends about a new Conservative plan for boosting Canada’s longterm prosperity.

Anyone who grew up in the era of John Hughes’s The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, etc., thinks that the teens of today are getting short shrift from American Pie, Not Another Teen Movie and anything starring Lindsay Lohan or the Olsen twins.

JAIME J. WEINMAN
What would you think of a huge man with a violent temper, a limited vocabulary, and a tendency to throw people across a room? You’d think he was scary, or dangerous. But there’s a man who has been famous for over two decades, mostly because he growls and threatens everyone with violence.

What have they done with Martha Stewart? The real Martha would never have posed for the cover of her new 744-page Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook. It must be a Stewart clone standing there in dappled sunlight vigorously cleaning a pane of glass, a beatific expression on her face.

I used to play hockey. And when I played hockey—which, by the way, I played—we had a saying. It was a saying about the playing of hockey—which, FYI, I did. By which I mean I played. Hockey. Anyway, the saying went: pay attention while playing hockey, because after you’re done playing hockey, which I played (that “which I played” bit isn’t part of the actual saying—I’m just reminding you), you can use the events that transpired during your hockey career as elaborate and excruciatingly repetitious metaphors for your next career.

I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence is a modern kitsch classic. Hilarious, eccentric, poignant and sometimes rude, Amy Sedaris’s advice to hosts and guests is a bracing antidote to the pretentious primers that dominate the field.

One of the best extra features on the new 36-disc M*A*S*H DVD set doesn’t have anyone who was involved with the series: it’s 25minutes’ worth of fans gushing about TV’s longest-lasting war. One is pleased that “it always had a lesson.” The show still impresses—the first to combine comedy and drama in an effective way, though there are too many episodes where Hawkeye cries.

From its synth-pop, dance-beat start, In View doesn’t sound like a Tragically Hip song. And when the singing breaks in, you’d think someone else in the band has taken over lead vocals. But no, it’s Gord Downie fronting a reinvigorated Hip—at least on this first single.
