Globe and Mail student survey is a joke.

It is a subjective survey.

There are problems with Internet surveys like this but subjectivity isn´t one of them.

^ This is why you´re a York student. lol.

You probably don´t even understand what it means to be subjective.

Attractiveness of campus B?? wtf!? Did they poll UTM students? Anybody I know know who has been to UofT downtown has been in awe of how beatiful the campus is. Trust me, I´ve been to many different Universities around Ontario and Quebec, and UofT is easily the most attractive.

But who cares? It´s a globe and mail survey! UofT will continue to be Canada´s best University despite this unscientific money scam.

If the G&M ranks UofT low, then it must be a scam. LOL
UofT kids sound like they got a bad case of sour grapes. What a bunch of cry babies. Face it. UofToronto is crap! G&M survey just confirms what has been known for quite some time. UofT is one of the worst places to go for a bachelor´s degree.
