U of T or Mcgill (in reply to: Which University to choose for Engineering)
Well, if u have been admitted to all of those, then go for U of T or Mcgill.It doesnt make any difference if u choose any of the above as they have solid reputation in canada as well as world.

If u are doin undergradutae studies and u want a good all rounded eduxation then go for Mcgill(If u want to go out of ontario) and if u want to go in ontario go for U of T.

The only thing in U of T is that the undergraduate class sizes for engineering are quite big.they have about 200 students for the first year and that according to me is a hindrance to get good education and also the professor student interaction is quite less.

But still choose one from U of T or mcgill based on ur prefernce.

In gerneral, U of T is the best in the engineering education.

If you care about going to a top grad school in the US., then I would suggest McGill. Otherwise, UofT and McGill are about the same.

First of all thank you for replying
Well i want to pursue graduate studies after my undergrad studies as well. Can someone give me the pro´s and con´s of going to McGill or U of T. I know McGills student life experience is superb as the campus is in downtown montreal and there is a lot to do, but can someone give me a good comparison of the two. Thanks again

As u know,
Mcgill has a solid reputation in US graduate school and so has U of T.
If u consider Mcgill, then u can be assured that u will get a complete engineering as well as great university experience.They have a great campus and good atmosphere.

In U of T, the reputation is as usual great for engineering in the world.But the only con for undergrad at U of T is the amount of attention students recieve during their university years.Being a very large university,they are not able to give proper attention to first and subsequent years student.If u are abrilliant and a really smart kid then U of T is the best choice but, if u r an average normal kid of high school like most ppl. then i would advise u to go to Mcgill.
Rest they are same,
so it really depends only on your choice

Waterloo Engineering is #1 (in reply to: Which University to choose for Engineering)
Did you get rejected by Waterloo? Waterloo Engineering is numero uno in Canada. The rest are far behind.

Yea,
fair enough!
Your family wants you to stay in Ontario and you want to go to Mcgill..Thats what happens with most international students(*And me too).
But finally its ur decision and your life.
