Subject: Canadian U = Amercan U
The American Schools are much better than the Canadian ones, but I feel these are the closest matches if you had to pick one from both sides of the border.

UofT = Columbia or Chicago
Western = Northwestern
Queen?s = Yale or Cornell

McMaster = John Hopkins
Waterloo = MIT or Caltech
York = Michigan
Ottawa = Georgetown

McGill = Harvard
Concordia = NYU or Boston U

UBC = Stanford or Berkeley
SFU = U of Washington
Alberta & Calgary = U of Texas (Austin)

If UofT is so good than why does McGill attracts a lot more American students?

McGill is seen as the better university south of the border.

UofT = McGill Wannabees

incorrect...tuition fees at Uof T is too expensive for the foreign students (US included) so they choose McGill which is way cheaper. also montreal is cheaper to live in than Toronto.

you´re not making any sense. how can uoft be known to be better at something when it isn´t even known at all. americans "know" mcgill as the harvard of canada, how that makes you relate that to low tuition or a low drinking age is beyond me. uoft is, well, not known at all. you see, your point about americans choosing mcgill due to low tuition would be valid if a choice actually existed. because uoft is virtually a no-name internationally, americans don´t view it as a choice. they either stick to their own universities at home, or they come to canada to go to mcgill.

I think UofT is better than UC Berkeley. Our Canadian values are better than those in America.

Berkeley is a world famous university that has earned its great reputation, while UofT is only known because it is named after Canada´s largest city - Toronto.

McGill has built its world-class brand not from riding off the back of the city which it is located in.

Get my drift?

Hong Kong University is not well-known becuase it is in Asia and obviously most Canadians/Americans don´t think about or care about what goes on in Asia.

Also, most Asians if they have the money rather choose to study at a "Western" university than some university in Asia.
