Subject: McGill No.1 for Scholarships
McGill has the highest percentage of its budget allocated to scholarships and bursaries in Canada. This is according to Maclean´s. Concordia is ranked 47th for scholarships. McGill kids claim Concordia was giving out scholarships like Halloween candy simply isn´t true. Face it McGill fanboys, students are choosing Concordia business despite Concordia´s lower scholarships.

i was referring to the guy who posted above in the other thread. concordia gives out scholarships to students who wouldn´t be offered scholarships by McGill. the students at McGill who do get scholarships (CRC >33, average > 92%), ie top students in the country, would never consider a reject school such as Concordia.

^Concordia has 1/7th the budget allocation of McGill dedicated to scholarships. They have much less money for scholarships to be giving it away like "Halloween candy".

they give them away like halloween candy to students who wouldn´t normally receive scholarships from top schools.

that´s the point. maybe i wasn´t clear enough the first time around but i clearly stated my point in this thread.

Who cares about % of budget allocated to scholarships? What matters is how much cash they give. Two schools beat McGill in that regard. Queen´s gives out far more cash than McGill does - almost every Queen´s student gets some kind of scholarship or bursary. UofT doesn´t give out as many merit based scholarships but they are the only school with a program like UTAPS - meaning if you get accepted to UofT they will pay your tuition and rez costs if you don´t get enough in (or qualify for) student loans.

You have no proof to support this claim.

let´s be very honest here.

do you seriously think Concordia attracts the same caliber of students as McGill, Queen´s, UBC, etc.?

stop lying to yourself if you really think Concordia is even in the same league as the top schools.

I will believe you if you can substantiate your calim with something more than conjecture.

you don´t have to believe me if you don´t want to. but the fact of the matter is, Concordia does not have nor does it attract elite students the way McGill, Queen´s or UBC can. It can´t even attract the best students in Montreal. They all go to McGill or University of Montreal. so don´t believe me, i don´t really care.

I´ll grant you the fact that McGill with its 6% higher average has more "elite" students than Concordia. So what? Concordia has their share of really smart kids too.

in terms of averages, 6% is alot
it´s the difference between ranked 1st in Canada in entering average grades (McGill) to being ranked 28th (Concordia)

% of students with an average > 75, McGill ranks 1st, Concordia ranks 21st

And if you really want to check out the elite: Student awards per 1000
McGill ranks 1st with 9.9
Concordia ranks 28th with 3

but like all universities, of course Concordia has their own good students

Why is it that Brock (with substantially lower admission standards than other schools) has more teams represented at Queen´s ICBC competition than McGill?

The bottom line is:

Good inputs (high entering averages) don´t necessarily translate to good output (highly trained students/graduates).
