|Subject: UBC or U of T...?
|Hi, I am a high school student (in Vancouver) deciding where to apply for university in Canada. My goal is to get a BSc (in biochemistry) and apply for Med School.
I am deciding between UT and UBC for undergrad. My questions are:
Which one will provide me with a better research experience?
(ie. which one has a stronger emphasis on undergrad research? The quality of facilities?)
Which one has a stronger science department (esp. undergrad level)?
Is it worth the money to study out of province? (ie. to get a new experience, learn a new culture, etc.) I know that, for first year, I will be about 10k in debt for UT, but get about 2k of spending money for UBC from scholarship.
I also know that some Med Schools in the US require a year of undergrad study in the states, and UBC offers more study exchange opportunities (to the states) than UT.
Thanks for any input.

Go to UBC, UofT can be your backup as it accepts 90.12% of students who apply.
