Its unbelievable how insecure yorkies are. You attend one of the lowest ranked university, and this is not my opinion, just ask Globe & Mail and Mcleans. Sorry, but you are going to face a reality check when you graduate. York students are looked upon as a glorified college grad, you´ll figure that out from your first paycheck. By-the-way posting how great York is does not change the worlds opinion, just show your insecurity being a yorkie.

York U keeps second spot as 'university of choice' (in reply to: York University -- The only choice)
http://www.yorku.ca/mediar/archive/Release.asp?Release=1024

York University has maintained its number two position on the list of universities in Ontario most preferred by applicants. Statistics released today show that York was second only to the University of Toronto in the number of first-choice applications from prospective students for the 2006-07 academic year. Students normally list their first, second and third choices of university when applying in Ontario. York also received the second-highest number of applications overall.



The 2006 figures, from the Ontario Universities Application Centre, confirm York has preserved its number two spot in first-choice applications ? first achieved in 2005 ? despite vigorous competition from many other universities.



Applications to Ontario universities by secondary school students are up by 1.6 per cent in 2006 over 2005. York?s numbers held steady, showing only a slight decline of one per cent on last year?s record numbers in first-choice applications and 1.8 per cent in overall applications. These numbers do not include applications from non-secondary school students, e.g. mature, college/university transfers or overseas students.



?We saw some spectacular gains for York last year ? particularly given a university of our size ? and we have consolidated those gains this year,? said Rob Tiffin, vice-president students. ?What these numbers show is that students are specifically choosing York over other institutions. Where we are seeing a dramatic drop-off is in the number of students placing York further down their list of choices and this is affecting our overall applications number slightly. But the absolute number of students putting York as their first or second choice indicates that York continues to be a PRIMARY DESTINATION, NOT a backup.?

No, there isn´t a single university that looks at how your choices are ranked on OUAC. This is a rumour and nothing more. Please stop spreading it or give some evidence besides what "some dude on the internet" said.

York is NOT Canada´s top-ranked humanities or social science university. UofT is undisputably the top place to study humanities, and Western, Laurier and McGill all have stronger socsci than York. This isn´t to say York is lagging in either area but it´s not the BEST. York doesn´t have as large course selections, funding, esteemed professors, or produce as much research and have as good reputations.

The exceptions are Womens Studies, Fine Arts and Biz, all of which York is the best for in Ontario.

Yorked (in reply to: York University -- The only choice)
For York to actually have coined its own term is pretty disgraceful. Being Yorked, if anyone isn´t aware, is the degree requirement change that happens every other year in November to ensure students have to return for another year to complete the sub-par degree they thought they would get.
Not to mention the York campus having the second highest crime rate in all of Toronto, second only to Jane and Finch. What is the average, one rape per week? I am not exaggerating. Fuck York.
