Looking for stats comparing USA/CA schools, etc.

Subject: Looking for stats comparing USA/CA schools, etc.
Hello:

We live in the USA and my daughter (10th grade) is interested in going to college in Canada. She specifically mentioned the University of Toronto.

I don´t know much about Canadian schools. I had a friend go to McGill to study History. He ended up a History professor in the US.

Do more people from Canada go to school in the States or vice versa?

How do Canadian schools compare to US schools?

Are typical US students properly prepared by high school to go to college or university in Canada? How about Canadian kids for US education?

How about getting in and expenses- Is it harder for a US kid to get in? And what does it cost per year for US students?

Anything else that might be worth passing on to my Daughter I would appreciate.

By the way, she is a very hard working girl getting mostly A´s working on an International Baccalaureate high school.

I guess I also should ask what percentage of US students end up staying in Canada for one reason or another. Are more young people moving to Canada or leaving Canada for US and eleswhere?

thanks in advance.

The top Canadian schools offer a world class education at a fraction of the cost U.S. schools charge. The top schools in Canada in general are: McGill, University of Toronto, Queens, UBC, and Waterloo. Choosing a school, depends on what she wants to study. Each school has its own strengths.

The top 20 U.S. schools are far superior to Canada´s top research/medical univeristy (either Toronto or McGill).

Let it be known that the University of Toronto´s last president (Mr. Birgeneau) left to become president at Berkeley.

No doubt, most of Canada´s best minds do leave for the U.S. or U.K.

So what if he left after 4 years of being president of UofT? He left as dean at MIT for UofT. He has alot of respect for UofT... you should read some of his addresses at Berkeley.

There is no such thing as a Dean of a University. Its rector/president.

Stupid ontario kids

21 Superior U.S. schools compared to little Canada (in reply to: Looking for stats comparing USA/CA schools, etc.)
You honestly would go to McGill or U of T instead of:


Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Cornell, Columbia

UPenn, Dartmouth, Brown, MIT, Stanford

UCLA, Berkeley, Chicago, Michigan, Duke

Caltech, NYU, Northwestern, Emory, John Hopkins,

Carnegie Mellon

That´s 21 schools I rather go to than any Canadian university if I had the money and/or the grades!

Your full of crap if you think Canadians schools can compete with any of the 21 U.S. universities mentioned above, especially at the graduate level.

Who said it is the same? Your reading comprehension skills are excellent, you idiot.

"There is no such thing as a Dean of a University. Its rector/president.

The previous poster said he was a "dean at MIT", he didn´t say he was "dean of MIT". Again, your reading comprehension skills are excellent! What the hell is a rector? They don´t have those in the states. The only have presidents and chancellors.

You should both come to Ontario and take some proper English courses instead of the crap they teach you in Quebec.

I know the the difference between dean and president you moron! A dean is the head of a faculty while a president is the head of a university.

It´s obvious that Dr. Brigerneau left MIT because he took a higher position at U of T for more money! Shortly after Berkeley stole him from Toronto to make him president.

Dr. Birgeneau´s dream was always to be president of Berkeley.

You could say U of T was the minor leagues before he got drafted to the big leagues - the top 21 U.S. schools I´ve mentioned above.

Do I have to clarify everything for you dumbass kids in shitty Ontario universities!

Ontario university fees are triple that of Quebec´s, yet Quebec universities are competitive if not better than those in Ontario.

I can´t imagine what would happen if Concordia and McGill $1800 / year tuition was raised to Ontario´s $5550/year level!

For sure, Concordia´s Macleans ranking would top the comprehensive category, while McGill already is already at the top of their category.

McGill´s success is easy to explain.

McGill = old money.


NYU = York? Hahahaha! Let´s take an informal poll in another discussion topic, shall we???

You forgot to mention the fact that Berkeley offered UofT´s president a salary that was TWICE as much as what he was getting at UofT.
