Rankings and relevance

I always find it interesting just how variable some of the rankings mechanisms used to evaluate universities are. Without even looking at individual faculties or drilling down even further to individual supervisors there's still a fair bit of variance. Wikipedia chronicles the University of Calgary's reputation and ranking in a number of different systems.

Still debating the Ph.D. programs here versus elsewhere.


What other places are you looking at? Any of them around here? With Darren attached and Ryan as good as attached, I don't see them less often than before which wasn't very often.

At the moment I'm eying U of A and a couple of smaller schools in Ontario. Anything in BC is somewhat unlikely, but UBC and UVic would both be on the list of possibilities.
