The Planetizen rankings are well known, but I am wondering how the University of British Columbia would fare in comparison to the top urban planning schools in the US.
It is a goal of mine to be admitted to UCLA or UC Berkeley for a PhD, but how would UBC fare against these schools?
I have heard it is the best in Canada for planning, but that might not say a lot in the North American context.
I am specifically interested in Transportation Policy, if that helps things. Working with Cervero at Berkeley would be the bees knees, making UCLA my second choice. And being Canadian, going to UBC has its benefits as well.
