Undergraduate or graduate? If the latter, please indicate what you intend to specialize in. Francophone or anglophone program?

Undergraduate physics:

1. U Montreal (even if you elected to go there for a physics major you'd still be doing honors-level coursework, only you have less courses to take; then again, my professors, some of which collaborate with the other two schools, may be a little biased)/McGill (honors)
2. McGill (major; you'll be then covering less material than in the Honors program)
3. Concordia (the undergraduate program is far worse than the other 2)

There really are two tiers of universities with respect to undergraduate mathematics in Montreal:

-U Montreal and McGill on top
-Concordia and UQAM below
