POLL: U of T or RYERSON for MECHANICAL ENG.

A photo of rajh rajh
I have gotten offers to UT, UW, Ryerson, Mac and UOIT but my choices are UT and Ryerson since I live in Toronto. I am having a tough choice choosing between Ryerson's and UT's Mechanical Engineering.

I heard UT Mech is good, but it is hard. Will I be able to have a life at UT?
Ryerson on the other hand is less tedious.
However, which of these will give me a higher chance of landing a job after graduation?

The problem is I have good marks in high school, but don't do much work.
Physics 89
Adv. Fn 90
English 83
Earth and Space High 80's
Calculus 85
Accounting 95

I'm going to U of T in September so I don't have any experience at either, but my brother is in U of T. He Knows a friend in Ryerson engineering and apparently it is a much worse program than at U of T engineering. My brother says U of T is much harder than Ryerson and I'm guessing you have a much better chance of getting a job after U of T than at Ryerson, especially with U of T's professional experience year.

I wanted to go to university in Toronto so I applied to Ryerson too, but there was no contest, I chose U of T right away. If you are lazy you should take Ryerson but otherwise I would go to U of T if I were you.

What exactly did your brother's friend mean by "worse"?
And what does your brother say about U of T Engineering? Is it really hard? and which program? Is it like full-time studies?
