I´m sure Concordia isn´t nearly as bad as Valery makes it out to be.

Montreal is probably more cosmopolitan and tolerant than you might conclude from some of the posts.

But maybe you might want to consider applying to Toronto and Waterloo as well.

I agree with Dr. Broom. Concordia isn´t as bad as Dr. Broom makes it out to be.

Please ignore the stupid comments made by everyone here, we are all idiots on this forum with too much time on our hands.

Go make an informed decision by visiting the various schools you plan to apply to. Good luck!

i dont think you will ever get an honest opinion on anything regarding concordia. the forum is full of montrealers who just fight for the second rate university.

Here is some advice-build a campus (a real one), up your admissions, generate something of a campus life, dont be so racial and stop spreading false statements about other schools- that is a start.

A real campus? Have you ever seen the loyola campus?

I have to say that the building in which the engineering graduate students work is spectacular.

Concordia is usually quiet but sometimes has a lot of religious tensions, like whenever someone from Israel is invited to speak (which explains their atrocious PoliSci and Arch/Anth departments). I especially don´t recommend Concordia for Jewish and (non-Muslim) Indian students - you will be much happier somewhere else. It wouldn´t surprise many people if Concordia became the next University of Hamburg (where many of the Sept 11 plotters studied).

Read Valery´s posts, he gives plenty of reasons to avoid Concordia. And there are better engineering grad schools. Try McGill if you´re in love with Montreal or want to work on your French. Otherwise consider an Ontario or BC school.

And it´s worth noting that Montreal engineering schools can be dangerous places:
