Western's Demographic?

Thinking of going here maybe.
I'm just wondering what the demographic and general feel of the place is. When I went to visit it was huge.

I heard that there are many snobby, white, rich Jewish kids mostly. Yes I read some previous posts and entirely agree. Most jews comes from CHAT, thornhill, ucc, bss, crestwood, etc. But thats okay, I have nothing against jews.

I don't think there are "Jewish kids mostly". That's pushing it, don't you think?

It depends really on the program. I have a friend in biomed who roughly estimated that in the program, there are about "30% white, 20% brown, 20% koreans, 25% chinese, and 5% black".

Jewish kids? I haven't met any. Snobby kids? There are some, though I don't think that would be significant enough to hinder you from choosing Western.

Could someone answer this with respect to Ivey/AEO's? It's not a big thing for me, I'm just curious :P

For the school as a whole, I'd say 55% white, 30% Asian, 14% brown, 1% black. Of the whites, maybe 1 in 10 are Jewish.

There actually is a large Jewish and Asian population. However... they mostly just hang out with each other, so depending on who you expose yourself to, you'll have different perspectives on what the Western make up is like.

I think Western is big enough that you're bound to fit in somewhere.
