I live in canada and am currently thinking about what US schools I might apply to. I would love to go to the top US schools. On the other hand they are hard to get into so I also want to look at some less well know/more realistic American school. Howver, as you know, canada does have three excellent schools ranked in the top 100 in the world: U of T, mcgill and UBC. At what point to you think it's not worth going for american universities anymore? What American school do you think are worth striving for and at what point do you think the Canadian universities have equal or better quality of education/reputation as the american ones? I've seen the international rankings, but they are not always reliable. I want to hear your opinions and actually name the colleges where you would mark the cut off!
