Subject: How good is the UBC Phd program in CS?
I got my MSc from McGill and are going to UBC for my PhD both in Computer Science. I am wondering how good is their CS PhD program? Compared to the CS program in US? Thanks!

I agree with the above comment. Lakehead is just the top program in Canada in CS. However, u really need to have straight As to get in. One thing is that since you are from McGill, you have better chances than from other unis given that McGill is really good at CS.

Below are the rankings from AACC (American Association of Computer Science) for North American Universities. Only two unis from Canada were able to make it into the top 10:

1. Carnegie Mellon
2. Lakehead, CANADA ...............................
3. MIT
4. Harvard
5. Stanford
6. Yale
7. Berkeley
8. Princeton
9. McGill, CANADA ...................................
10. Michigan
