U of T Vs Ryerson in electrical engineering

Subject: U of T Vs Ryerson in electrical engineering
Ok...Right now I´m in u of t (2nd year). My GPA is very low, to the point that I will get kicked out if I don?t pull up my average by next semester.
So I have 2 options:

1. Stay where I am and work 10 times as hard.
2. Switch out to Ryerson ASAP.

I say "Ryerson" because I don´t want to go anywhere else and "ASAP" because the more I progress in u of t the fewer courses I can transfer to Ryerson.

Here?s what I know about u of t:
Courses:
1. Right now the whole curriculum has changed, and the staff claim that they have changed it to be more like MIT. (I dunno if that?s true or not)
2. I don´t know if the new curriculum is going to do us any good in the long term because they have moved some of the third year courses to 2nd year and have dropped some of the necessary courses (in a way i think they have softened the required foundation for advanced math)

Facilities:
1. Lots of computer labs and numerous computer programs. by far the best I have seen so far.
2. Electronics labs have new oscilloscopes and multimeters but some very old power supplies. But in the end you CAN finish the lab with the material provided.
3. Digital labs, which are my favorite. Those labs bring digital concepts and lower level computer languages to life

notice that there are about 200 of these stations, and I have researched and seen no other university that has anything like to this.

Professors:
Not necessarily the best. Some are good and some are horrible.

TAs:
Very friendly and helpful

Student life:
I have no life what so ever. But in the end its only 4 years and in the long term I think its worth it.

Ok...now I know nothing about Ryerson and was wondering if someone could tell me if switching to Ryerson would be a wise choice?

Dude, you´re preparing to be an engineer - get used to having no life, both in and after school.

If you´re going to get kicked out of school then by all means transfer out first. But will Ryerson take you if you´re on the verge of flunking? I assume your average is below a C and that´s the minimum level most schools want from xfer students.

And if you´re barely scraping through UofT, what does it matter to you what gee-whiz equipment they have? If you really enjoyed that junk you would be getting (or at least be capable of getting) better grades.

I smell a troll here. If you´re legit and you´re grasping for any sort of advice at all, here it is: focus on your schoolwork and study your ass off, make sure you pull minimum level grades (I think 1.75 GPA?) in all your classes, even if it means dropping some or switching to part-time. Worst case scenario, drop all your classes and take time off. That at least leaves you the option of coming back in a few years. If you flunk out academically you´re SOL.

Maybe UofT management is good at spending money but I doubt they´re creative enough to do viral marketing shit like this. I think it´s just a troll trying to keep this place alive during the holidays.

Well, give up! We´ve got better things to do this xmas than get high and look at naked UWO strippers. There are plenty of places to see UWO girls naked, there´s a few just down the block from me right now. You´re going to have to do better than that, cocheese.

The original poster is a fake. This means that Ryerson engineering is starting to gett UoFT worried.

I think U guys havent been in a place which can really be called HELLLLL......Mcmaster engineering is the hardest one all ova da canada.....Theres a killer course named 2CJ4 in elec 2nd year and its the Higher level circuit analysis.Believe me in our latest Midterm 25 out of 225 students managed to pass the test.The Shitty prof we have for that course always looks to be nyc to us but i guess that wut he do in the exams....killing the whole class...
MCMASTER RULLLESSSSS!!!!!!Atleast we got a nyc bounded campus......jokin

I don´t think he´s a fake at all. I´m attending U of T so I know. A lot of people failed and dropped out. I´m doing terrible myself. The classes´ average are so bad. I don´t know how I´m gonna get the marks to go to grad school.

My brother went to Ryerson, it´s pretty good. A lot of employers don´t care which school you came from, really. My brother got a job right away after graduation. I don´t like U of T at all cause it seem like they try to trick you on the tests.
