Need Help with Tough Decision

A photo of stack444 stack444
I have been accepted to Queens (science), Western (BioMed), and McMaster (Life Sci). I am having a lot of trouble deciding between these three programs. Distance is not a factor for me. I am most concerned with keeping a high GPA (my current average is 90) and having a nice experience during the 4 years that i am there.
So what are the differences between these three universities? I have visited them and they are all satisfactory. This is what I have gathered about each university so far, tell me what you think..

Western: good school but maybe too much partying, and not a good reputation among employers and post-graduate admissions
Queens: great school but not well-known for science
McMaster: not as amazing campus as Western/Queens but great reputation. more difficult than queens and western

^would you say that is accurate? any help/advice/ or even biased opinion is appreciated :)

I think from the above mentioned schools, Western would probably be the easiest to maintain a high GPA. It's not that much of a party school if you hang out with the right people. What's a bonus for Western in terms of bio med is that they have a dentistry and medical school... and only 2 school in Ontario have a dentistry school sooo..


Obviously I am biased here. Generally, if you work hard, you can get a high GPA. I just know so many people in bio med right now at Western and the ones that are putting in an adequate amount of studying time are doing quite well.
