Psychology: UofT vs York

Subject: Psychology: UofT vs York
I heard that the psychology program at York is better than UofT at the undergraduate level. They told me that York boosted a lot of behaviourial scienctists. Besides, they also told me that the psychology department will be housed in an independent faculty called the Faculty of Health in July and will receive much more funding.

So that is York´s psychology program better than UofT?
Serious answers please.

those voices in your head are not real, yorkie. york is not even in the same league. good try though.

Psychology in Canada = UofT, McGill, Waterloo (clinical).

York is...well, its York.

Give one good argument for why York can be in the same league and I´ll be very impressed. Keep in mind you need to back up your claim with a link of some sort. Those voices in your head don´t count.

The average scores on the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology were highest at the University of Oregon, with UW running a close second, and Yale coming in at ninth, Simon Fraser at 32nd, University of British Columbia 36th and McGill 39th. The other Canadian programs, at York, Alberta and Ottawa were further down the list. The examination is an essential for PhD psychologists starting professional work, whether in counselling practice or in institutions.

I have seen the undergrad tests for psych at both universities and I am convinced York has better 1st and 2nd year psych courses. U of T has better higher years. U of T uses their intro psych courses to try and discourage people who arent hardcore.

^Maybe UofT isn´t mentioned because they don´t have a clinical psych program, retard!

As far as 1st year psych at UofT goes, I am glad they make it really hard because it weeds out a ton of students. For example, you need 80% in first year psych (class average usually around C) and at least a 3.0gpa for the psych specialist program.

And anything past 1st year, UofT kills. We have one psych class taught by a professor who was a hit from Harvard, Jordan Peterson. And the class he teaches is exactly the same as the one he taught at Harvard.

**Don´t ask me what that list was with all those numbers?

So what was the relevance of that list, to show that Dalhousie is number 1 in psych?

This is why York students have a bad reputation.
