McGill is a great school, but it has a slightly inflated reputation relative to it's output (i.e. in terms of publications, research, nobel prize winners, etc).

Anyway, saying that UofT's repuation is inflated because it's located in Toronto makes one wonder why Ryerson and York aren't better known.

Because Ryerson is young and York blows?

It's only been a UNI for about 15 years.  That's pretty young.  It will take awhile to overcome it's polytech past..

I'm just trying to heckle the Ryerson boy.

Ryerson's business school has gained much repute over the years, especially since the construction of their new facilities. Were you still there when the new building was finished?

Yea, I had Entrepreneurial Finance in that building my last year.  They had awful heating issues.  It was a solid 32 every class >:(

Damn. Now I wish I went to RyHigh. All I got in UG were frumpy UofT girls. :(
