Where should I go: University of Toronto or McGill?

A photo of DanClark DanClark
I got into both Universities. The BCom program at Desautels Faculty of Management (McGill) and into Rotman Commerce (at U of Toronto). Both are undergraduate programs.
Which one do you think is a better university and why? (Please mention aspects like student body, reputation, city life (Toronto vs. Montreal), and any other relevant things to consider).

Thanks!

McGill.
IMO Montreal>Toronto
Desautels recruiting > Rotman recruiting
Reputation-wise, I heard Desautels places much better than Rotman on Bay Street and anything else in finance for that matter. I don't have any real numbers though it's just what I heard :P
Idk about costs but you could easily search that up :D

I'm glad to hear you consider McGill better, because I really have my eye set on it.
I mainly like Desautels because of the student body, wide variety of majors/concentrations and availability of financial aid. When it comes to city life, I ADORE Toronto, though... far more than Montreal.

Any other thoughts? I could really use some more opinions on the matter! :)

It's a little unusual that you find Toronto's nightlife > Montreal's...I actually lived in Toronto pretty much my entire life and it's great, but having been to Montreal a few times I'm still in love with it. It's a personal opinion I guess, but you were pretty much the only person I've ever heard say Toronto > Montreal :P
