Subject: McMaster to UofT
I am currently a McMaster student, and I am planning to transfer to UofT. I am not saying McMaster is a bad school but a degree from UofT weights more, right?

Is it easier to get into a good American grad school with a degree from UofT than a degree from McMaster, Wterloo, etc?

^ That´s pure Bullshit! Anyone graduating with a high GPA from any of the top 50 Canadian universities can get into most American graduate schools.

Thats not true at all. Biggest bullshit ever. If you knew anything about graduate school you would know that they look at how hard the curriculum is at your school. UofT is known as the hardest school in Canada hence if you have a very high GPA at UofT then you are set...

Graduate programs tend to look at your whole undergrad school, ie how tough it is and it´s reputation. Professional schools like law and med (both in Canada and US) are more numbers driven and your schools rep doesn´t count for much.

Do all the good jobs in Ontario go to UofT grads? Are UofT grads employers´ first choice?

I worked so hard in highschool so I can get into McGill. Now I read graduates from Western and Lakehead also gain admission into top graduate schools in the U.S. Life really sucks!!!

- I am a grad student at a top univ in the US. Believe me, more important than your GPA is your school´s reputation, and then comes GPA and other things.

- Sure, a Lakehead grad can get into a decent grad school if he/she has lots of publications a 4:00 gpa (no lower is enough), super excellent references from famous people (I don´t know how they will do this), etc. etc.

- On the other hand, a McGill or UofT graduate can get into a decent grad school much easier, as long as hey have an average even slighly above average. If they have very high avearage, they can even get into top schools like Harvard, MIT, etc.

- Sure, McGill and UofT are the nes which have the most prestige in the eyes of American admissions committees. McMaster, Waterloo, etc. are all great, but their degree do not weigh as much as McGill´s and UofT´s do.

I am from UofT and my current GPA is 2.95. Do you think I still have chance at grad school?
