Queen's vs UofT

Subject: Queen's vs UofT
I would choose Queen´s for general Arts and Science. But for medicine or engineering, UofT is much better than Queen´s.

Queen´s is a snobbish school and UofT reflects the real world. But the society as a whole values Queen´s Arts and Science degrees higher than UofT.

UofT has a strong international reputation but the so-called reputation is established by the research at UofT. So there is no difference between UofT and Queen´s at the undergraudate level.

If you are from a middle class family or above, go to Queen´s. You will have a lot of life-long friends there. I really don´t like the competitive and stressful environment at UofT.

1. Since when is a degree from Queen´s more valued than a degree from UofT?? I think you have it mixed up.

2. Yes, research is how a school gets its reputation.

3. Whether there is a difference depends on the program you are in.

4. Fuck Queen´s.

what UofT reputation? hahah

yeah, sure, Queen´s is WASPy, lots of rich kids... but the connections you´ll make is exponentially more important than a UofT degree.

I´m not going to argue with you, troll. We both know which school is more prestigious and more reputable.

rich kids have connections, it´d be ridiculous to say that connections are not important

Lakeheader is absolutely right - (if he is Lakeheader). After the first job, all employers ever care about is what you´ve accomplished in your career. After 5 years of work experience, your university´s name usually ends up in the fine print (bold print if Queen´s) on the last few lines, of the last page on your resume

The degree may help get you in the door if you have no other previous related work experience.

Allowing a degree to inflate their sense of self importance is a mistake I see many people make over and over again.

^ Then how could you have a decent job, a good career path from your first job without a reputable school´s diploma?

By your logic, those who go to UofT, Queen´s, McGill are stupid? They love to have some challenges in their lives??

In summary, if you graduate from a reputable school, then you have a good ladder. If not, good luck in finding a ladder yourself.

"1. Since when is a degree from Queen?s more valued than a degree from UofT?? I think you have it mixed up.

2. Yes, research is how a school gets its reputation.

4. Fuck Queen?s. "

1. People have different values even with the same product. And the consensus of people (including but not limited to employers, guidances) placed a higher value on Queen´s degrees.

2. Not just research but also the teaching quality, campus life, learning environment and facilities.

3. Of course. But this thread compares the schools as a whole.

4. A loser will have some barbaric behaviours if he loses everything. Take the PSY100 course and you will know that. End of discussion.

^ I don´t know about you, but from where I come from, UofT is much more prestigious and better valued than Queen´s. You can believe whatever makes you sleep better, but that´s reality.
