Laurentian University or University of Toronto ???

A photo of lisa0513 lisa0513
Hey,
So I need some help deciding whether I should choose to go to Laurentian University or University of Toronto for Forensic Sciences.
I know University of Toronto is more well known and high ranked, but I heard Laurentian University is the only "accredited university in Canada for forensic sciences".
Whereas University of Toronto has a max. of 200 people in a class, in Laurentian, they're only accepting 40 students so there will only be one class every year for forensics. I heard Laurentian is also more hands on while University of Toronto is more lecture-seminar based. But Laurentian is more expensive ): I'd have to live in residence (I live near University of Toronto so I'd be cheaper for me to go there). I think I like Laurentian more, but I want to make my parents proud and go to a more famous well known university :D.
What do you think?!?!

Other university options are Guelph, Trent and Windsor. Or I could study in the States but I'm limited on money.

THANKS!

If you want to get a job directly after undergraduate then where you complete it may matter, I went directly to graduate school after my undergraduate.

-Going to a more famous well known university does not mean anything if you do not end up getting a good job.
Visit the campus see which one you like better, I do not know much about the forensics program so you would have to look into that, you can also email or call forensics labs/corporations and ask them about good places to complete your undergraduate.
Though in my opinion I think they will say it does not matter as long as it is accredited.
other then that: UoFT- is of course great for science...but depending on the campus you choose you may feel the lack of student teacher interaction in first year courses.
Guelph: is good for anything in the life science:microbiology,toxicology,animal&plant science, Bio-medical science(you get to work with real cadavers),Biochemistry,nutrition etc.
