    McGill in Quebec, Canada? That's really good. Keep that as your back-up incase you don't get in either of the other two.

    It might help if you posted this in the Universities forum or the International lounge, not UCL.

    And mentioning the course you're interested in might help.

    Seeing as I’m applying to both the UK and Canada as well, I chose the UK as my primary choice and if I don’t get in, then Canada it is.
    What I would do if I were you, is put down UCL as my firm and Warwick as my insurance. Accept the offer from McGill, and if you don’t meet either of the grades for the British unis, go to Canada. However, if you get the grades required, and you have to pick which one to go to, you need to look at the all the facilities the university has to offer. Generally speaking both universities are really good. UCL ranks in the top 5 while, Warwick ranks in the top 10/15 according to Times. However, you might want to look at where it ranks in relation to your course, as well as the accommodation facilities, location, etc…or anything that might affect your decision.
    For example, I prefer studying in London, and so put down the London unis as my top choices. I suggest you go the open days and visit the unis and see for yourself. I know it might be difficult seeing as you are an international student, but I think that’s thte only way to actually get a good ‘idea’ of the environment in general.

    Agreed - L100 UCL as firm, and Warwick as insurance. Good choices.

    Hey I'm from Canada so thought I'd make a quick comment...while Mcgill is not "like the top university of Canada", it's still a really good school - if you're thinking of staying in Canada after completing your degree then definitely Mcgill's great (and Montreal is known as a party city - fun times!) - but if not, look at the reputation the school's have in Pakistan - what's recognized - I know for me, considering going to the UK for school, that's a major consideration for me because I'll be coming back to Canada afterwards. Either way - three great schools - best of luck!
