I have no beef with either UT or McGill. Both are good.
I just get tired of the Waterloo=MIT bullshit hype.

Academically, UofT. Socially, McGill.

Why?

- UofT has strong programs across the board, wheareas McGill has some weaknesses (e.g., engineering, business)

- Both schools suffer from large class sizes that are comparable in size (same as Queen´s). So, both are pretty equal in that regard. McMaster is the worst though.

- UofT has a lot more programs and courses to choose from

- Both are very research-intensive and offer students opportunity to gain experience.

- Both have top faculty and students

- UofT students get more money than McGill students

Socially, McGill is better. Why?

- less commuters, so more sense of community, school spirit, and that sort of thing. I wouldn´t say less students is a big cause because McGill has 30,000+ students and UofT St. George has 40,000+ students, so the difference is not that huge.

- Also, McGill students seem to be less nerdy and uptight on the whole. There are exceptions though.

It´s kind of like arguing who´s better: Yale or Princeton? (I´m not saying either one compares to Yale or Princeton). Both sides can go on and on and never come to a conclusion. It´s best to say that both are great schools and the best in the Canada, and leave it at that.

UT is strong in like all its fields, McGill does have some weaknesses, its not known for its business for one. These two schools are definately the top two in Canada no doubt. But if i were to choose between the two it would probably be UT st.george. but mcgill over utsc and utm

why not, if you were to choose between any canadian schools these two schools would first come to mind when it comes to prestige... what you would choose lakehead even if you got into both of these schools?

I go to U of T although I´m sure I would be quite happy at McGill as well. They are both great schools. Personally, I chose U of T because I like Toronto more than I like Montreal. I think it is important that you figure out which school is the better "fit" for you since you can get a great education at either one.

McGill´s engineering program is ranked in the top two according to THES and Gourman.
McGill´s business program is among the top in Canada according to Financial Times and Forbes.

It´s ridiculous to suggest that these are McGill´s weak areas, and I bet whoever wrote that hasn´t even attended one class in either faculty so they don´t know jack. I won´t argue over which university is better, and I won´t spew out bullshit like some people here. Pick whichever university is a good fit for you, each university is a good choice.

The big deal about deciding between McGill and UofT is that it dictates the city you´ll spend the next 4 years in. Montreal and Toronto are very different places. Spending 4 years in either during your early adulthood will definitely shape your personality. That will be a bigger factor on your life than either of the two cities´ universities.
