Psst. The University of Toronto is easy to get into. However, be warned, it will screw you in the ass. Courses are curved to a C while other unis curve to an A (like Western). Also, you don't enter UofT when you are admitted. You enter a stream. Then you have to make PoSt, which is typically pretty hard to do and very competitive. DO NOT COME TO THIS SCHOOL.
Man, the University of Toronto fucked me again with a 62 in first year economics. Now I cannot make PoSt and I'm stuck with a shitty GPA while all the Western and Queens students party all night.

"Prestigious" university whose graduates either end up working the same jobs as the freshmen of University of Waterloo, or end up creating an amazing career for themselves at Mc Donald's.
Bob: Dude, after 8 months of graduating from UofT, I finally got a job!!
Tim: Really, what company and what position?
Bob: Um, its at a multinational company and I need to work on a system where I need to maintain high standards of customer service during high-volume, fast-paced operations.
Tim: So, waiter at Mc Donald's?
Bob: Yeah!!! And best of all, I get paid a cent over the minimum wages!!
Tim: Score! University of Toronto is the best fam!!

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.

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?

A university with 3 campuses across Ontario. The school is lauded within Toronto as being very prestigious, and students are actually taught to snub their noses at other universities and colleges, regardless of Academic merit. In many cases, U of T students tend to get an inflated ego from the schools over zealous and sometimes irrationally pompous attitude towards calling itself "the Harvard of the North".

Such assumptions are generally debated and won by the fact that the U of T campuses consists of UTSC (Scarborough campus), UOFT (Downtown) and UTE (Erindale/Mississauga) - this last campus is in Mississauga, which is not part of Toronto and thus shows how idiotic the administration and overall management of the school is.

Some U of T students are able to graduate without developing a high ego, but many of the students - primarily those who go to the downtown campus, often end up with an inflated sense of worth - only to graduate and end up working for their peers who attended other universities.
U of T Student: I think I would be great for this job.
Employer: Looks good, so what university did you go to?
U of T Student: University of Toronto.
Employer: Excellent, UofT has prepared you well for this job. Welcome abord!
U of T Student: When do I start?
Employer: Right now!

U of T Student employed: Do you want fries with that?
Customer: Hell No!

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..."
