Nova Scotia, Quebec, New Brunswick and Newfoundland might as well be one big province. They are packed so close together. Oh, you forget Windsor. It attracts students from "out of state" lol...

windsor, lol, this school is a piece of shit, it attracts ppl with negative averages. the only reason why it attracts US students is because of proximity.

^There is +/- 5.8% spread in the range of averages. So what´s your point? McGill has the right to attract international students and Windsor does not?

Everyone in Canada know about Toronto. Whether they would go out of their way to attend UofT is another story. Out west, we have a saying about about Toronto. Toronto sucks!

In Toronto we have a saying about "out west".

We call it our backyard. Please keep it clean.

The stats are based on Canadians choosing a school outside their home province. Windsor only attracts foreign students, mostly Chinese. In Canada, Windsor has less than 1% out of province students. Canadians know Windsor isn´t a great univeristy.

The point is UofT isn´t regarded as the best university in Canada amongst non-Ontarians, that´s why they only rank 15th on the above list.

Your arguement about the proximity of the eastern provinces isn´t a good argument. Any student choosing to go to another province to study will have to incur additional living costs (ex. dormitory fees or apartment rent).

The only exception is Ottawa and Carleton because Quebec is just across the river from Ottawa.

Most Canadians go to school near their home. Even if you move 50 km away from home, you still incur the same expenses (ex. food and shelter) as someone moving across provinces.

If that´s the case, there really isn´t a best Canadian university, but....

McGill is the only Canadian university whereby students are willing to incur the living expenses.

That in my opinion, along with the highest entering grade, top 3 in research, and top 3 in reputation, highest percentage of American students, puts McGill far ahead of UofT, UBC, Queens, etc.

^ Are you kidding?

Do you have any f*ing idea how isolated Queens is? Maybe one or two students a year enrol in Queens who are near enuff to live at home. Say what you want about McGill´s "reputation" but there are more McGill students proportionally who live at home than Queens.

Another good example is St. F-X. There´s only about 1000 residents in that town, 99% of them senior citizens. Don´t give me that bull about Nova Scotia being a small province - good luck finding public transportation and there´s hardly any student parking.

McGill = not.top.shit.at.everything.you.stupid.wankers

Where I´m from, McGill and UofT are tossups for the "best" university in Canada. Nobody out west would want to go to either but if you held a gun to their head you can bet the farm they´d choose Toronto. That´s nothing personal against McGill, but completely personal against Montreal and Quebec.

I don´t care if you feel the need to prove yourself against UofT. I´m sick of hearing from that f*king McGill kid. At least the UofT fags are immigrant geeks and not stuck up rich snobs. And at least there is more than one of them here so we don´t have to read the same kid´s posts over and over and over and over........................

One more thing.........

WTF DO I CARE ABOUT AMERICANS????????

Have a bunch of yankees around is the WORST possible thing to boast about. If you were taking the creme de la creme of yanks, fine, but McGill takes AVERAGE yank students and if Hollywood (and Seattle) have taught me anything the average yank college student is RETARDED.

I am a CANADIAN. This is a CANADIAN forum and I want to talk about CANADIAN schools. Piss off you f*ing America lover.
