Bottom Line

Subject: Bottom Line
UofT cannot attract the best students, because it does not have as much prestige as McGill. Among universities, the amount of prestige an institution has is what determines how much that institution is worth. When people think of the highest level of education in the Canada, they think McGill, not UofT. When people asked where I was going to university, I would give the all-too-familiar response of "Canada" and then "Montreal" before finally admitting that I was headed for McGill. This is because McGill´s prestige automatically would give me the label of being too smart or too good, something I did not want to have. When people would ask my UofT buddy where he was headed, it was without hesitation that he would respond "University of Toronto" because UofT does not have the same clout to give him such a label. People just assume its in Toronto, nothing more. Talk to any international student, and they will tell you that outside Canada, McGill is what is known as far as universities in Canada go. This prestige gives McGill the ability to attract students from across the world and make McGill such an incredibly diverse place.

Very nice analysis OP. I totally agree!!! I am thinking... whether I would admit that easily if I was a UofT student. I think so, yeah.. But now, I don´t sday it so readily since that would immediately make me look too smart.
