UBC or York?

A photo of michaelchang516 michaelchang516

I'm asking for my friend who has been accepted into both UBC and York's social science programs. She would like opinions from people who are in UBC and York or people who are familiar to give suggestions. All factors matter including environment, school spirit, social life, academic, job opportunities, city life and more.

Outside of academics.. UBC and york are like apples to oranges. Where does she plan to live afterwards? Thats an important consideration. York is a cummuter school.. not exactly a lot of 'school spirit' but definitely the funner of the two schools. UBC has a really strong social science program.. most people I think would agree probably top 3 in Canada. York has terrible employment prospects afterwards usually.
