Waterloo or UBC

Canadian Universities Forum (discussion group)

Subject: Waterloo or UBC
Hey, in terms of math and physics, which would be a better choice? I´m from the US, but am a Canadian citizen, so I havent had much exposure to either. I know Waterloo has the Perimeter Institue, and the largest faculty of math. But how does it scale on the international ranking compared to UBC, especially when I´ll be applying to graduate schools? Im not into Co-op one of the main strengths of Waterloo.

Anyways, thanks.

I suggest you choose Waterloo

UBC is well rounded and has some international recognition, but isnt particularly famous for math and physics

Waterloo is strongest in Math, and even though i dont believe they have a degree in physics, they probably do have a concentraiton in it. Waterloo probably isnt so famous to the common person internationally, but anyone with knowledge in math institutions will know waterloo.

Both are very good "geek" schools. Waterloo is probably the better "geek´ school because most of them graduate with a math degree.
