uni rankings in my favour

although rating universities is wrought with contention, as anyone who has attended the university of calgary well knows, it is welcome news plucked from the guardian to hear that my grad school, lancaster, is ranked #6 in the uk.  behind oxford, cambridge, and st andrews, but ahead of lse, soas, and perhaps most importantly for lancashirians, york!

the times says it is 10th and the independent says it is 8th so they must be on to something, wouldn't you think?

although i did leave the school in 2006 so maybe their high ranking doesn't apply to when i was there, but at least it is getting publicity and better known across the pond, which can't hurt.
