I don't want to argue, obviously if you go to york then York is the best school there is, if you go to Ut then, that's the best
Here's the truth according to Slim Piggy, CE at Waterloo is inhumane, I applied back in 97 with a 93% avg and got shot down, my roommate, who's been in canada for a year at the time, applied with a 96.4%, this guy also score 700 even on the Toefl, and ranked Number 4 national wide on the Sir Issac Newton Physics Open, I didn't do Toefl, so I don't know how difficult the thing really is. Therefore, the cutoff line for CE must be somewhere above 93% and a hair under 97%
I don't think any body at Rolia can get 96% in English for the entrance exam
Waterloo is only 40 years old, about 1/5 of UT's age and about 1/5 of Queen's age, it's a unarguable the best school because it has accomplished what the other school acheived in only 40 years.
Waterloo started as the Chemistry college of Waterloo, most of you think CS is the big deal at Waterloo, however, the best assets are the people at Chemical Engineering.
I personally think school ranking is useless, meaningless and stupid and nothing but a ego trip, but if you've been following the ranking of MaClean's in the past 5 years, you will see Waterloo is the overall number one since the late 80's.
little known fact, UWaterloo is the largest source of Microsoft's employee source, also Fact, Corel cut 600 people last year, none of the 40 Waterloo coops were removed.
Queen's is not a good CS school, simple as that, believe what you want.
there are things in UW that didn't get much press, I rather not bring them up again in respect the fallen.
I can tell you stories after stories about how big UW grad's become, but none of them are important＜本文发表于: 相约加拿大:枫下论坛 www.rolia.net/f ＞
