I have fond memories of Ecole Polytechnique and U de M. Your girlfriend would be right to throw a hissy fit. The distance notwithstanding, U de M. has much to choose from, if ya know what I mean. That said, I also have vividly bad memories of Poly, including Dec. 6, 1989, and a nasty thesis advisor, as nasty as nasty gets.

As for McGill, it also stakes its reputation on graduate education: Masters and Ph.Ds, as well as publications. Whether Concordia likes it or not, McGill publishes like crazy and has many influential researchers teaching there.

Yeah it is, but it's really my only choice, realistically I can't commute from NJ When I get in Montreal we should meet up for fun.

You're from Kitchener and you're not going to the best University there is, which happens to be outside your back door? lol but seriously, UW Rocks man, except for the small lack of the opposite sex, but that is made up for down the road at Laurier. But, going to school in Montreal would be awesome, have fun!

Yeah, no doubt. I'm sure you'll have a blast living in residence.

I applied there too, but never got an aswer. Oh well I guess it doesn't really matter anyway now since I've paid all my deposits for McGill.

Out of the vniversities I visited, Uottawa seemed to be the most student-friendly. Have fun there!

While all of you are starting, I'm finishing my degree...real world here i come!

People used to tell me "school is the best time of your life", so keep that in mind during the next 2-3-4 years ok?

Who cares about grades unless you need scolarships or a good GPA for a masters...Just have fun!

good luck in anything you do, but just to tell, I think that a study was done by an International organism and ConU was placed way ahead of Mcgill in the MBA program. Check the Conu website you will see it.

It's a cool place... I'll try and do my Masters there since I live 15 min from there.

For all you people starting Univeristy, I just have one piece of advice for you: enjoy it. I'm not talking about only parties, but about everything: there are a lot of very interesting extracurricular activities, seminars, summer projects, etc, available out there.

This was my last Undergrad semester at Concordia in Computer Science / Pscyhology, and my one regret was that I spent too many semesters just going to class and hanging out with friends. It's only this past year that I realized just how much Universities have to offer...

Congrats Oli - and to all the others going to school.

At the venerable old age of 32 I decided it was time to go back for some unfinished business. Well, that's not entirely true, I've come to a point in life where I *want* to learn, rather than being forced to do it. So, in that vein, I'm taking Distance Ed courses from UWaterloo. Just finished my first one and I'm looking forward to seeing what my final mark is - I should find out in a couple of weeks.

My goals aren't as lofty as the Poli-Sci's and the Science and Psychology diploma's you'll all attain. While I'm not quite decided for sure on a path, my outline thus far has me working for a Philosophy degree. Particularly pleasing since I can then look at someone who bothers me and say things like: "Neither matter nor form comes to be," and enjoy the blank looks people will give me.

For all those going to university, my first Smithwick's before the game tonight will be raised to you.

I spent a short time at Concordia some years ago and found it a tough place to soak up a university atmosphere. My daughter is in her 3rd year and claims the same. She loves the city and ALL it has to offer but finds Con U just to be some buildings that she has classes in.

I will agree with you on that; Concordia makes it easy to just go to class. What I've learned from my experience there though is that if you put in any amount of effort more than the minimum, you will find a ton of activities. But that really is the catch: you can't sit back and expect ConU to offer all these things to you, you have to go and get them.

For example, if you're really passionate about a certain topic, you can go speak to teachers in that field and they can give you great advice, set up a summer internship or research, or even let you sit in on a Graduate class. Basically, I was amazed at how much more you can get out of a University if you show interest in it.

Cool, is that the bidisciplinary programme ? I was thinking of doing that. A girl in my CEGEP class is going to do that.

Congratulations man! Probably the best letter to get eh? When I got my acceptance for a school here it was one of the happiest days I had had in years. Congrats again and have fun next year!

Is Concordia considered as respectable as McGill?

Well it all depends on what program and who is hireing. Overall, McGill is still riding on it's reputation but is still a great university. Concordia is gaining ground but will never get the same recognition as McGill.

But who cares where you've done your degree. If after your degree your looking for a job and this HR person is from the same school then you gain an advantage.

Well that's how it works out most of the time...

If your studying medecine at concordia well...McGill would be better, anything to do with computers and social sciences I would opt for Concordia. Pures sciences would be Mcgill unless I'm mistaken

Well this info is from a guy that attended neither of these universities but heard alot from each...

Go Carabin Go!!!
