Mac or Queens Kin?

A photo of Xoria Xoria
Mac has awesome Kin, and they take like 200 people, but Queens only 40-90 people. My average is med 80s right now. I want to do sports medicine later. Should I bother with queens?

I applied to Queen's. I didn't think it was that competitive though.

I also have a decision to make between Queen's and McMaster. I think that McMaster is more of a well established program, whereas Queen's is a relatively newer program. There seems to be very little info on the Queen's program, likely due to the small number of people and its newness.

I think I would choose Mac simply because the city of Hamilton and the campus is absolutely gorgeous. It shines with the brightness of a thousand suns, while the Queens campus is just, meh (comparable to Waterloo).

Really? I've actually heard otherwise; apparently Mac's campus is average while the Queens Campus is great. Waterloo, on the other hand, supposedly has a dreadful campus. I think that I'm going to choose Mac in the end just because its a bit closer to home.

If youre choosing based on city/campus then you really don't care about education do you?

Queens is a party school... Mac is soso from what I've heard. Waterloo, yes, is dreadful for parties and overall the city sucks. But in terms of program, Mac and UW are the best. Queens is getting there, but not quite yet. I'd rather York or Western

Are you kidding me? Queen's campus is beautiful! Old ivy-covered limestone buildings, park-like, right on the water. I've been to McMaster and although decent, isn't anywhere near as nice as Queen's. And don't get me started on Hamilton vs. Kingston - although Kingston's smaller, its SUCH a nice town. #4 best place to live in Canada! http://www.aspect.bc.ca/resources/top-canadian-cities-young-professionals-work-and-live-revealed-next-generation-consulting

Anyway, I don't know much about how the programs compare, but I had to challenge the comparison to Waterloo haha.
