Subject: McGill is good but it's declining
McGill is a great school once a while but it has declined from the late 70s and is still continuing.

If I could choose between UofT or McGill only. I would like to go to UofT because it´s rising in the upward trend line.

It is the same case between the cities of Toronto and Montreal. Montreal was the greatest city in the nation before the 70s (it even hosted the Olympic Games) but Toronto has totally replaced the importance of Montreal since the early 80s.

McGill is declining for sure. UofT is also declining bigtime. Their acceptance rates are through the roof, like 90.12%, anyone can get in (05/06 Macleans). It´s been rising since the 60´s, it used to be around 80%, which is still high, but now it´s over 10% higher. the good thing is that many people can have a good education. But the rising star is York, with it´s Schulich business school, it is tops in Canada. Check the financial times and forbes, York will be the top school in Canada in a few years.

The joke of 90% is over. The real figure is around 50-60%.

York can´t be a top school because it doesn´t have a medical school, a decent engineering school.

York could be top in 2-tier school. But it could never be a Canadian Ivy.

I´m also predicting York to be the best in Canada, it has the foundation in its Schulich business which trumps every business school in Canada. Once it focuses on its other departments, beware. McGill is declining, but UofT is also declining quite a bit.
