We all know McGill is arguably the best university in Canada. McGill is ranked number one in the medical doctoral category of Maclean´s 2005 (along with UofT), McGill is ranked the top Canadian school in the Times Higher Education Supplement ranking of the world´s best universities at 24the place, the only Canadian university in the top 25 in the world. McGill is Research University of the Year 2005 in the medical doctoral category, named by Research InfoSource. However, other rankings such as SJTU and Newsweek places UofT higher.

We can debate as to which is better for a long time. Both are excellent universities. But may I reminder that when it comes to parties, McGill wins by a large margin compared with any other University in Canada. It is the only Canadian University ranked in the top 10 party schools by Playboy. McGillers work hard and party hard. They are also the safest partiers in all of Canada. In fact, statistics show McGill has a relatively safer party atmosphere than other Canadian schools on the list. In fact, a 2002 survey showed 12 McGill students were sent to hospital for alcohol poisoning, compared with 200 for Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia -- another well-known party school. This is largely because Montreal is an exciting city, it is not like London or Kingston in the middle of farm land where sheep graze. Students in farm land Ontario drink in their dorms because they can´t drink until they´re 19 or the bars just suck, and they all go crazy with massive keggers. So, if you think UWO and Queen´s can party, think again. Richmond street and the Kingston Penitentiary is not my idea of a fun time.

who the fuck cares if mcgill is a party school?

I never knew that it was something to be proud of anyways, I bet mcgill students are running outta things to be proud of.

If I want to party, I´ll go to clubs and real parties, not stupid college parties full of nerds and dorks trying to get laid.

I agree that Montreal is a great city to party in but look at the Playboy ranking objectively. McGill was included because of all the American students who attend there, the fact that the city is full of hot French chix, and the relaxed drinking and stripping laws compared to the states. Only McGill management deserve to give the school a rep for crazy parties. McGill is actually pretty tame compared to other schools though it´s the wildest in Montreal. Safe partying? Oxymoron, at least in this context.

I love the line:

"we study hard but party hard"

Sure you do. I heard Mcgill students are a bunch of clowns and the academics are quite crap there.

Maybe you guys should party less and study more and maybe just maybe one day you will be able to attend graduate school at UofT.

1. McGill isn´t the best University in Canada. In fact, it´s not even the second best.

2. The only reason why McGill is on Playboy´s prestigious top 10 list is because the drinking age in Quebec is 18 (but it´s not even really 18 - you could be must younger and no one cares)

McGill is the best university in Canada, not arguably. More importantly, internationals view it as the best university in Canada while UofT is an afterthought.

Sorry but neither UofT or McGill are viewed internationally as more prestigious than a middle tier US school. McGill has a good rep in the US northeast, UofT has a good rep in parts of Asia. Both are recognized as arguably the best in Canada, depending on who you ask, where they live, whether they hate Toronto/Quebec, etc. If a firm in London UK was considering between McGill and UofT applicants, it wouldn´t be the school´s name that was the deciding factor. Either schools´ name might be a factor when compared to say Carleton or Saskatchewan but not each other.

saskatchewan would be more prestigious if a foreign company had never heard of mcgill (which is likely). universities named after a city/state/province have more street cred with foreigners

Find one ranking system that puts Dartmouth and Brown (both Ivy League) ahead of UofT or McGill. Good-luck!
