look up any word, like fuck boy:
 
1.
1. Best known as the Harvard of Canada and a member of the "Canadian Ivey Leagues", known for its academic prowess.

2. The first university in the world to maximize profits by accepting even those students it would normally reject through periperal second-rate campuses in Scarborough and Mississauga.

3. Home to the nation's greatest masochists who slave away sleep deprived and stress -ridden for mediocre grades while their peers drink booze and party at other universities, only to discover upon graduation that none of it mattered.
University of Toronto student: OMG WTF that guy from Ryerson got the job! I spent 4 years being a no-life, phoning my professors every weekend asking for research positions during the summer, worked my ass off, graduated with a 3.5 gpa and I still didn't get the job.

Ryerson kid: Dude, I showed up to class and got a 4.0.

see., awesome

U of T is a huge research university in downtown Toronto. The student population is diverse and pretty smart. What I mean by that is that there are a lot of asians.

When students are asked what university they go to, some just say 'I got to school in Toronto'. That's because it's the only university in Toronto that actually matters. I'd list the other schools, but I forgot them.

This way of answering 'where do you go university' with a city name should not be confused with the reason why McGill students answer with 'Montreal'. McGill students tell people they went to school in Montreal because they are too embarrassed to admit they actually went to McGill.
I go to the University of Toronto because McGill girls are ugly and they smoke crack at York.

The University of Toronto (U of T) is a large research oriented school located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

U of T prides itself on being the most academically intensive school in the country and, generally speaking, they are correct. Unfortunately, everything else about the university sucks.

Despite what U of T students and faculty may tell you, it is NOT the "Harvard of the North," that distinction goes to Mcgill. (sorry Queen's)

The admissions averages are lower than that of "easier" schools such as UWO, Queen's, and Mcgill because no one wants to go there. There is no student community, and no social scene. The student body is VERY unattractive, and most are virgins when they graduate.

Speaking of graduates, the ones U of T produces are pathetic: they have zero real world skills, and despite their "VASTLY SUPERIOR EDUCATION!!!!!," are unable to find jobs; that is until some enterprising Waterloo alum realizes that U of T graduates make excellent code monkeys if kept locked in a back room and fed a steady diet of study drugs and U of T alumni newsletters.

If you want to become a businessman, go to Western. If you want to become a doctor, go to Mcgill. If you want to become a lawyer, go to Queen's. If you want to become an insecure, friendless, virgin loser, who will forever cling to the security blanket known as "prestige," go to the University of Toronto; if that's your goal, there truly is no better school anywhere in Canada or the world.
Western grad: I went to UWO. I slept with 25 new women each year, I played on the football team, I partied my ass off, and now I make 125k a year as a investment banker.

Queen's grad: I went to Queen's. I killed it in undergrad and I met my wife in law school. Together we started our own law firm and are now happily married with 2 kids and a black lab.

Mcgill grad: I went to Mcgill. During school I tore up the nightclubs in Montreal, the coolest city in Canada and one of the best in the world. I graduated summa cum laude, went to medical school, and now I save lives for a living.

University of Toronto grad: Yeah well I went to U of T, the BEST school in the country. During school I stayed home every weekend, studied my ass off, and still graduated with a 2.7 GPA. I met no girls, went to no parties, and couldn't get into graduate school. Today I'm a personal accountant for a Banker, a Lawyer, and a Doctor.

A post-secondary institution in Toronto where people go to get a piece of paper that is supposed to earn them a tiny bit of prestige.

Pros: Some nice architecture, pretty flexible due dates (in the humanities at least), central location, profs usually know what they're talking about, huge ass libraries.

Cons: Some ugly-as-shit buildings, elitist/bitchy classmates (who also come with a hint of classism), nonexistent social scene.

Neutral: Profs mark a bit harder compared to other institutions, but with loose due dates it doesn't actually make a difference.
---
StudentA: Where are you going next year?

StudentB: I'm going to the University of Toronto! So prestigious, eh?

StudentA: Well, I'm going to "insert Ivy League here", so suck it.

StudentB: T.T

University of Toronto is one of the most elite institutions in the world. Also referred to as the Harvard of the North thus being the top of the Canadian Ivy Leagues and the top choice of anyone who is 'anyone'. The campus is located in the luxurious upper side of down town Toronto.The pure definition of class, a school of beautiful, well dressed, and smart individuals who possess an elite sense of worth.
University of Toronto students don't have to think they are better then everyone who dosen't go to UofT. They are better.
John: Hey man did you get into University of Toronto?
James: No...
John: Oh really? wow.
James: Arn't you going to ask where I got in?
John: Does it matter?

University of Toronto is the Harvard of the North this statement is based purely on fact. UofT is an elite institution where only the best of the best get into, thus those who come from wealthy families, ivy league preped their whole lives and somehow to top it all off are extremely goodlooking. The students at UofT possess an extremely over inflated ego and prance around the lavish downtown core with a superior air to them that says "soon this one day will all be ours". The UofT students stick up their noses to other universitys which they classify as second rate, those in which include "every" university other then their elite American counterparts Harvard, Princeton and Berkely- schools which they usually attend for further studies.

UofT where the best of the best go to become better then you ever will be.
actual perception of people downtown:
Sam- " is there something special going on down here today?"
John-"No... man its just the University of Toronto students they always dress like that"
Sam-" Oh cool..."
