I couldn't decide which university I should go to...

Which one do you think it's better? UT or UBC? :'(

+ UT has reputation...and it's close from my home & im kinda scared since i heard UT drop lots of students after 1st year ..

+ UBC is in vancouver! but too far away? also less reputation...

UBC Sauder is a better business school compared to UT rotman. If you are more concerned about the general university ranking. Then go to UT since its closer and has a better general university ranking.

I would say UBC is slightly better than Rotman. Employers don't really look at which university u come from, they care about which business school u attend..

I would choose rotman.

Both schools are equally good choices, but you're making a huge investment going to UBC not just money-wise, but think about the potential nostalgia that you are posing to yourself as you'll live far away from your family and friends. Not that it's a bad thing, but if you're deciding between two very similar schools, I dont see the reason to move so far away, unless you have family issues.

Also, dont be frightened by the difficulty at utsg. The onus is ultimately on you to succeed as a student... there is no barrier that limits your ability to succeed. Of course it is easier said than done, but if you really work hard with an authentic motivation to learn the curriculum and get involved with the school, I fail to see any reason for you to be hesitant in choosing rotman.

As a side note, I hear that the high dropout rate at rotman is due to international students and their lack of english/essay writing skills.

Tread lightly my friend.
