1. McGill (by far!)

- Highest percentage of out of province students (50%)

- Highest percentage of internatonal students (20%)

- Most number of American students (approx. 2,000 +)

- Most productive researchers in Canada on a per captia basis (Infosource)

- Good diversity of students (not too white and not too Asian)

- No stupid satelite campuses which lower admission standards (eg. Toronto, UBC)

- Not too large (under 30,000 students)

- People recognize the school?s brand "McGill" as opposed to being named after a city or province (eg. Toronto, UBC, Alberta, etc.).

- Highest percentage of graduate students: 20% (Most other schools only have 10% or less of their student body as grad students.)

- School spirit (not as fun as Western or Queens, but still not a boring school like U of T and UBC)

- All faculties are highly regarded or at least quite good
{not a one faculty school like Waterloo (Engineering), Guelph (Agriculture), Concordia (Business), York (Fine Arts), etc.}

To have prestige, the school must be at least a hundred years old.
