McGill has loads of student abroad program though(600+ schools) so I'll be looking at that too. What about you? By the way, what residence are you going to stay at? There were so many I wasn't sure what to choose but I put Douglass as my first choice. (Hotel was nice but too expensive)

I can't really answer whether or not McGill is hard to get into. I got in with 1250 SAT and a 3.8 GPA, but my dad still knew the associate dean of management and wrote him a nice letter so I think that may have helped me alot.

what are your other choices? Also, what do you mean by nice? McGill's campus is really beautiful, but I don't think that should influence your decision on whether or not to go there.

if I stay in Québec city I'll go to Laval University ... let's say that it's not my 1st pick

if I move I'll go to either Bishop or McGill

and someone asked if I'd go to the US, and I'd like to very much but I don't know how much that would cost

To go to the US you need anywhere from 40-60 thousand a year. A tad too much if you ask me, unless your doing MBA, PHD, etc. You easily get your money back then, so well worth it. Money is always an issue though initially.

Congrats, learning is always good. Or so I heard. :lol


I went to a small business college in the states, my only advice is study hard, don't drink too much but make sure you have a lot of fun as well!

It would cost super super super expensive. I thought about that too, and for me, as a Canadian with a US address it would all be in the 35 000+ per year range(tuition only ) I'm sure it's more expensive as an international student. Unless you can get insane scholarships(the best I got was 9,000 a year at one college, but the price was still 20 000 per year(tuition only again)) I would say going to Canada would be much easier on the wallet.

Ya but like i said above, its well worth it if your gona get highly educated like MBA, PHD. Its much easier over there to get a high GPA, if you goto a modestly know university.

What do you mean don't drink to much? that the first thing you do in University with your initiation!!!

Oli: University of Montreal is really fun with lots of nice looking women! go to all the parties especially "le 2 étages" at the begining of the simester. You`ll meet tons of new and cool people and a few weirdos here and there. I don`t know in what building is Political science but if you go at the "pavillon principal", that`s where you`ll find girls in biochem, chem, pharmaco, dental and doctor...nice!

Have fun

Have fun.

I know someone living in Florida, and she told me for a person living there it costs about 13 000 to go to Florida State University, and since I'd be a foreign student she told me that I could get bursaries pretty easily

I got accepted at UQAT in Abitibi.

I'm going from Montreal to Abitibi....... what an upgrade!

The reason i'm going there is that they credited me 1 year. So i'll stay out there 2 years. I'm gonna do a "Bac en multimédia avec profil en gestion" which is only given out there in Quebec. There's something similar in Concordia but they refused to credit me anything. There's one of my friend that is going too so it won't be too boring.

screw mcgill people. Long live Concordia. Mcgill is just living on its old reputation. They are good in medicine, law, and languages. COn U rocks in business and engineering.

That's cool. I'm going into Arts, to do Economics and Political Science.

I live in Montréal, so I won't be staying in residence, even though that'd be cool. I heard that Douglas is the best residence, so good choice.

Edit: Come to think of it, how much does residence cost ? Maybe I'll pay for it myself for like the first semester. It'd be pretty cool.

Douglas is a little under 8 thousand, and the new hotel residence is a little over 10 thousand(by little I mean maybe 200$)

Maybe they are as good as McGill, but what is really important to me is McGill's international reputation. I plan on doing an MBA at McGill and I know their MBAs are very well recognised.
