    If you're a US resident, i do not think resident rates apply in Canadian schools so you might be paying $10,000 a year for a Canadian school just like foreigners pay $10,000's a year here because the government's supplement the fees. Thus, they do not want to supplement people who don't live there since the theory goes that you pay taxes as a resident which means you in a sense already payed (or your parents) a higher tuition.

    I have moved around a bit and attended 3 schools and have come the the conclusion that there is very little difference. Same books, same problems, more or less the same mix of teaching quality as far as I'm concerned. In fact, i'd say that the quality of my teachers at the community college I first attended, was better than my current University professors! I'd say that location and price alter your college experience more than University name.

    Why do you think price has any remote bearing on quality?

    The cost of a degree is determined by many factors dependent upon your place of origin and the school's status and location.

    For instance tuition at Bowdoin is a whopping $32,650 per year

    http://www.bowdoin.edu/admissions/studentaid/

    Berkeley's fees are somewhat more realistic, approx $2,700 for California residents (add $8,000 for non residents).

    http://registrar.berkeley.edu/Registration/feesched.html

    and I doubt anyone will put hand on heart and tell you that Bowdoin is a better choice than Berkeley, though I may be being very unfair here and I am biased by my predisposition to viewing things through the mathematics department, but then that is all I can judge fairly.

    That's also a good point matt, there is a univeristy here that is like, $20,000 a year adn it's where all the elementary school teacher wanna-bes go and become $20,000 a year salaried elementary school teachers with nothing special about them.

    I should point out that when I say 'status' I mean 'is state subsidized' or 'is private' etc, and it is not a comment on any other interpretation of the word 'status'.

    Incidentally, based upon your current sig, why on earth do you hate linear algebra? It's just representations of a field and is very nice and simple (though possibly badly explained).
