Off-campus life
Post-university prospects (ie Law School)

(in reply to: McMaster or UOttawa?)
Quality of Education: Ottawa, as political science is its specialty and the convenience of being in a government run city for CO-OP is great. Also, many of the professors do actual research for politicians and government departments.

Campus life - Ottawa U is known as a concrete campus and not so much for having a campus life. Mcmaster has that small town campus feel, and has some really nice scenery. Also, the pedestrian only campus is a nice touch.

Off-campus life - Mcmaster has a student ghetto in the Westdale area involving allot of bickering between permanent residents and students. uOttawa has a more peaceful neighbourhood with nicer housing, but less social life.

Post-university prospects (ie Law School)- All that matters is your GPA and your EC´s as well as LSAT... no preference is given to any particular school
