McGill praised in Princeton Review


Named among ’Best 361 Colleges’ in North America

August 23, 2006 - McGill University is once again ranked as one of the best institutions in North America in the Princeton Review’s annual guide “The Best 361 Colleges.”

McGill is one of only two Canadian universities featured in the 2007 edition of the guide, a respected reference for students, parents and high school counsellors published in August by the Princeton Review, a New York-based education services company.

“We chose schools for this book primarily for their outstanding academics,” says the Princeton Review’s Robert Franek. “We evaluated them based on institutional data we collect about the schools, feedback from students attending them and our visits to schools over the years. We also consider the opinions of independent college counsellors, students and parents we hear from and survey year-long.”

The Princeton Review, which has no affiliation with Princeton University, does not rank schools in any single category from one to 361, nor does it compile a “best overall” list. Instead, the survey of undergraduate programs asked 115,000 students at 361 top colleges to rate their schools in more than 60 categories, on everything from the quality of the professors to student aid. McGill students cited the strength of the University’s science, medicine and music programs, its high academic standards and excellent reputation among graduate schools and employers.

Only about 15 percent of the four-year colleges in the United States appear in the guide, including Princeton and Harvard.
