Where to?

I've been accepted at McGill, Carleton and Queens for engineering. I've toured them all and done a bunch of research on all of them. I was wondering if anyone had any feedback on where they'd go. I'd really like to know what the campus feel and student experience is at all of them. I know all first year engineering programs are pretty much the same but what's the atmosphere at each of them.

Thanks

Hey OP, i've been accepted into both Carleton and Waterloo (the two to which i've applied).

I would personally say Carleton! For starters, Ottawa is a fantastic city, one of the reasons why i'm going (originally from Manitoba). Another is the amount of money they give you! Waterloo has so far only offered me $2000 to come to their school, while Carleton is offering me $7000 (this is before Waterloo sends out it's next round of engineering scholarships), however I don't see Waterloo offering much more than an extra grand. (my average is ~97%). Of course I'm not sure how these scholarships compare to the other universities you've applied to but Carleton is known for giving out lots of cash.

A few other factors include atmosphere, again from what i've heard Carleton has an awesome campus, and same with Queens, McGill probably has a fairly nice campus too, however I've heard that Waterloo's campus is kind of dreary. The other factor to worry about is engineering reputation, so it depends on what type of engineering you want to take, in my case i'm taking ECE, and Carleton has lots of facilities for ECE majors!

Yeah but Waterloo's Co-op is worth tens of thousands of dollars plus work experience that will kickstart your career.

Right, but a lot of places have awesome Co-op as well, specifically big city schools (like Carleton or U of T) where there are many host companies to choose from.
