What I mean is McGill likens to compare itself to top universities around the world. Ranking in top 20 lists, and comparing itself to the same standards as Ivy League Schools.
In my opinion, undergraduate programs, especially arts, at McGill are not at this level. These rankings and comparisons do hold for graduate programs and research but not undergrad. And unless you get access to supervisors from your honours thesis, or honours and graduate seminars; it doesn't compare to universities it likes to compare itself to.
