I heard that Queen's and the city of Kingston are full of racists. I don't get how being white = racist.

Are you insinuating that there's something wrong with convicts?

Haven't heard of that...until now.

I've heard that:
-UTSG is snobby and Rotman is full of asians.
Even so, I made it my first choice. Can't base life on stereotypes.

-Ryerson is a close-knit society where everyone actually knows eachother. sounds fun.

-Western is a PARTTTTTTTTTAY school. also fun :)

You'll get used to the voices soon. As well as the sudden images of maggots crawling out of the eyes and mouth of grotesquely smiling clowns.

You can be sure that at least they get the job done.

Popular conceptions I've heard...

U of T = brutal, lots of FOBs/Asians
UBC = lots of Asians
McGill = party school
Queen's = lots of rich, snobby whites
McMaster = lots of browns
Western = party school
SFU = UBC rejects
Concordia = McGill rejects
York = U of T rejects
UVic = hippies
Guelph = vegetarians and animal rights activists
Carleton = LawStudent

Never heard that one... If anything it is the epitome of a commuter school.

I'd say Mac is actually 50/50 white:minorities. There aren't a lot of black people here though, most of the minorities are Asians (including Indians).

Waterloo is all Asians, and it's pretty much true.

Laurier and Dalhousie are the best party unies.
