Main Question or Discussion Point
I am currently a high school student, I will be graduating next year and I know exactly what I want to do after that. I cannot see myself choosing a career other than physics as it is my passion and it has always been my dream to work as a theoretical physicist. I am now at the point where I am going to have to apply for an university. Ideally I would get accepted into a top US university, but I dont think that is going to happen as I have almost no extracurricular activities and I am purely depending on my academic success. Since I live in Canada, I will probably end up attending a Canadian university. I think I've narrowed my options down to UBC, UoT, and Waterloo(I can probably get accepted into any Canadian university considering my academic record). If I my ultimate goal is to get a Ph.D and attempt to make a living as a theoretical physicist, which one of these universities should I attend for my bachelor's? What are some possible advantages and disadvantages of each of these universities?
