11 Canadian Universities Decline to Participate in Canadian Version of U.S. News Rankings

In his blog, Brian Leiter (Brian Leiter's Law School
Reports, 8/16/2006 - originally posted on 8/14)
excerpts an article from the CBC News web site
of 8/14 that states that 11 Canadian
universities will not participate in this year's Maclean's
rankings survey (the Canadian version of the
U.S. News survey) because of "concerns about the
methodology and the validity of some of the measures."

The comments following Leiter's post speculate
on the reasons for the dissension and why U.S.
universities haven't followed suit.
