Schools Which School? [Canada]

  1. Mar 7, 2016 #1
    I am finishing grade 12 and want to pursue a career in physics/mathematics. I applied to, and was accepted into said programs at McMaster, Queen's, and University of Western Ontario. I was wondering whether any one had a specific advantage over another? (Undergrad)

    I don't think there's any major advantage of one of the others. They are all great schools on par with each other, in my opinion.

    Given that, you're in a position to make a decision based on your own personal preferences. Is it going to be cheaper to go to one over another? Do you think you'll excel in one place? Is there one program that's particularly attractive to you? I would aim for the one where it seem like you're the most comfortable at because, at the end of the day, what will matter is how much you learn and how well you perform.

    Why didn't you apply to U of T?

    Yeah that makes sense! Thank you!

    When I visited I didn't quite feel as comfortable with the school as a whole as I did with the other three.
