You don't really want to go to the same school as all your best friends or a "party school," make some new friends and get a good education. You'll find enough time to party at any school. ;-D

My choice and my reasons ;-D ;-D

The reason wages are high here in Alberta and there are so many job openings is because no one can afford to live here. House prices have more than doubled in the past few years and rents have skyrocketed (if you can even find a rental since a lot of them went condo and were sold because of the prices they could get). Doesn't matter how much McDonald's pays if a decent house costs $450,000. A tiny condo is over $300,000, teeny little starter homes $340,000.

It's a combination of the oil aswell...

Houses in Vancouver are atleast 600K+ now...it's getting ridiculous.

Yeh, houses close to downtown Calgary can run $700,000 to $1,000,000!!!

The house two over from mine just sold for 979,000...

The market is getting ridiculous.

Scenery+Olympics+Atmosphere are really rising the prices.

At least you already have some property (I assume), I'm worried I might not be able to live around here at all! :-o

I left Calgary 7 years ago when prices were low to move to small town Alberta - I sure couldn't afford to move back now (not that I'd want too)!

For the Canadians:

Anything you guys can tell me about Canadian universities? Are they basically the same as in the United States or are there any disadvantages/advantages to them? Just wondering since a few Canadian schools came up when I was looking at a list of possible colleges (McGill and University of Toronto in particular).

Well, they're the same as American Universities but there is maple syrup everywhere.

They're pretty much exactly the same, but sports are not as big of a deal.

I'm not sure what they're like now, but when I went they were a heck of a lot cheaper than U.S. universities. They're prob still somewhat cheaper since most get a fair bit of gov't funding, but ones like McGill would prob cost more than most. Quality is similar, lots of U.S. prof's here. MacLeans magazine puts out an annual ranking of Canadian universities http://oncampus.macleans.ca/education/2 ... -rankings/ - not sure how reliable it is as I know some universities have refused to participate. Some universities are a lot better in certain faculties.
Football is really, really weak, lol!
