How is Alexandria University comparing to Cairo now ? I thought it was ranking much higher.

But don't bother, the whole ranking thing is bogus. Refer to the case of Alexandria University in Cairo.

I think also include the Egypt Al-Azhar University in top ten position.

As far as a truly radical conscience, you have to take it as part of a larger thing, that it was sort of historical inevitability that with the coming of a leaguer society people would start to use drugs a lot more then they had before.

That's right. This whole ranking business is highly suspect. UAE University is no where near where it should be. Provost Rory Hume's reforms are failing. And no wonder, with 30% of UAEU teaching and admin staff possessing dubious, low quality if not fraudulent qualifications.

I agree, this ranking does look quite suspicious. It is not at all what I would expect it to be, nor is it even close to being in line with other rankings that I have seen. I would have to conclude that this ranking in completely fictitious, and should by no means be taken seriously.

Has anyone heard of the Chrysalis School Montana? I am considering sending my daughter to this school, and am wondering what you guys think about it. If you know of anyone who has attended, please let me know. Thank you.

This ranking thing is too general, and there are no numbers to support such a claim. You should look at the times website for better results.

UAEU is a mess and declining quickly.  The HCT, not listed, is a snakepit sinking into the slime.

What's happened to UAE University? It used to be ranked (erroneously) at 374? Does anyone know? Has it sunk in the Times ranking?
