Ok, so my situation is somewhat different. I am a Canadian citizen (born in Montreal) deciding between UC Berkeley, University of Toronto, and McGill University for engineering. I know that Berkeley is outstanding in engineering, but looking at some rankings U of T isn't all that far behind. For the most part, money is not all that big of an issue, but I was wondering if paying the extra $100k+ for Berkeley is worth it. I understand that U of T has not made the same name for itself as Berkeley in the US anyway. I am thinking about going to grad school after. Any input would be terrific...I am pulling my hair out trying to figure this one out.
