How come there are so little UofT students admitted to Harvard? like 5,6 peole every year. They even accept more students from some less-known American schools than from UofT. is it simply because less students from uoft apply to those top schools or is it they don't really want Canadians...?
It's because only 5or6 UofT qualify to gain admittance to Harvard per year. Which is a lot.
Considering the circumstances, 5 or 6 is actually quite a bit. That's equivalent to some pretty prestigious schools in the U.S. I agree with the above posters, but would add that they may discriminate in terms of a maximum number of Canadian acceptances. At some point they're going to limit the amount of Canadians in their 1L class. Much like UofT and McGill do with Yanks.
Dude(SN), think about what you're saying. Would they have a 1st year class of all Canadians? No. At some point they are going to say enough is enough. The limit may be high, but, as I said, this is the only possible disadvantage to being a Canadian applicant.
