HELP ME HELP ME HELP ME!!!! UWO MIT/Ivey or McGill Arts!

Hey guys, I'm trying to choose between UWO MIT + Ivey and McGill Arts.. For now, I definitely think I'd like a career in Marketing, Public Relations, or anything Communications related. Obviously I want to make a good living as well. Can anyone give me insight into what school I should pick?
McGill Pros:
-Great international rep
-Prestigious school
-Amazing city
-Decent internship opportunities
-Away from family and friends (make new ones)
-Decent extracurricular opportunities
-Get to carve my own path and make new friends

McGill Cons:
-Bachelor of Arts degree will get me nowhere??
-Not as good career opportunities as Ivey
-Still have to do master
-Probably will have to work a sh*tload harder to make it to the top in my field versus an Ivey education

UWO Pros:
-Interesting program (MIT and Ivey)
-Great reputation
-Good party school
-Great extracurricular opportunities
-Awesome career opportunities

UWO Cons:
-Been there, done that (sister goes there, been many times)
-Not really that nice of campus
-London
-Entire high school is going
-Too challenging? (Ivey... or maybe thats my senioritis talking hehe)

My hearts been set on McGill for years and unfortunately I was rejected from McGill Commerce. I accepted the Arts offer but now people have been telling me that UWO is much better for my future. I really want to go someplace where I can love my program and be able party hard and make a lot of memories. I also really want to be able to get great summer internships and a great job after school. Do you guys think McGill would fit my needs?? Help! Need to decide by Thursday!!!!!!!!! Wah

Hey,

I just finished my first year of MIT at western and I can tell you it was the best decision I ever made. I was also in a similar position, and actually accepted somewhere else and changed my mind at the last minute to UWO (so glad I did)

MIT is such a unique program as opposed to just an arts degree.. If you graduate with MIT you're only one of 175 people in CANADA to do so. That in itself is a huge accomplishment, not to mention how prestigious Ivey looks to employers. I know someone who just graduated from Ivey and was offered a job on wallstreet in NYC before he was even finished.

London itself is a great city - great party life, great bars. and it is a beautiful campus so that shouldn't be on your cons list! Hopefully you make the right decision and choose UWO! Best of luck! :)

You should have two less pros for McGill, you repeat yourself twice.

Despite that, I think you should go for McGill because you obviously prefer it. You can always try transferring to Desautels second year. And even if you can't, just get a degree in economics and then get your MBA.
