Subject: Hey McGill Students....
What are you going to do after you graduate? Are you going to stay in Montreal or go somewhere else? My relatives in MTL tell me the job scene sucks there but they are all working at least.

For those of you staying in MTL, can you speak French? Do you think anglophones have a disadvantage there? Will you vote for separation in the next referendum?

Most McGill students are not even Montrealers, that´s how national and international the university is. Obviously, most will not stay in Montreal.

What is amazing is the fact tht McGill can attract students from all over, and yet the school is in a predominantly French-speaking city. Furthermore, McGill is severely underfunded (based on lower tuition fees) compared to its Canadian rivals, yet it still attracts students with higher averages than Queen´s and UofT.

McGill = Amazing!

You say that like it´s a bad thing to be in Montreal. Montreal is a kickass city and a "safe" foreign destination for Merkins. It´s also been proven conclusively that Quebec´s low birthrate and dwindling anglophones give McGill NO CHOICE but to recruit outside the province.


"Furthermore, McGill is severely underfunded (based on lower tuition fees) compared to its Canadian rivals, yet it still attracts students with higher averages than Queen?s and UofT."

McGill still has a lot of prestige and will keep attracting the moneyed set. But why mention McGill in the same sentence as UofT? There´s no way it can compete with that giant. McGill is better compared with Queens; it competes with them for Canadian students and for prestige in management and commerce.

It´s too bad Montreal isn´t economically attractive enough to retain McGill grads. That must piss off the Bloc.

But what do I know? I go to Lakehead. WPWW.

Be careful when you say "attracts more students with higher grades than Queen´s or UofT" ... UofT attracts just as many if not more, but also accepts students with slightly lower grades as well which lowers it´s average. I´m not sure about Queen´s. Since McGill has a bigger population than Queen´s, I´d assume it attracts more students with higher grades.

^ See your words refute your own. McGill´s entering average is the highest! Whether it is compared to a smaller school like Queens or a much bigger school like UofT.

Honestly, McGill does not compare with the giant U of T, you can compare it with UBC, but not U of T. All you will be doing is demonstrating your ignorance.

U of T is Canada´s best, has been, and, always will be.

McGill shouldn´t be compared to UofT. if anything, they should be compared to Queen´s. Both McGill and Queen´s are the top two universities in the country, UofT is lucky it´s even in 3rd place.

UofT is indeed a giant, but i wouldn´t consider this a good thing: ranked 12th in average entering grades and as a result, 70 000 students. it´s like a freaking state school, accepting mediocre students.
