    So far I've been accepted into Queens university in canada, Western ontario, Simon Fraser, University of Toronto and I have received a scholarship of 8000 dollars from Carleton. I'm not too sure of what I want to study yet but I was thinking maybe something involving political science.I'm sort of leaning towards Queens as I like the campus feel but am still not sure. So far which of these uni's should I choose?

    Hi there! Congratulations on your offers!

    If you are studying political science, then U of T would be the top choice. Queen's is also a top contender and Western would be close behind. Carleton seems like a good idea, since it is located in the capital city and you got a scholarship to go with it. I heard good things about their program, but in terms of reputation (in case you want to look for employment back in your home country), then I think U of T would stand out from the crowd. Otherwise, all universities are pretty great.

    Note that the standard of living is higher in Toronto and Vancouver (if you choose Simon Fraser) than other places, given that they are huge cities, so if you are strapped for cash, then I wouldn't suggest doing that. Queen's is located in Kingston, which is a small city located halfway between Toronto and Ottawa. The same thing goes for Western, which is located in London, halfway between Toronto and Windsor.

    Queen's has a really nice campus and I usually hear that they have a pretty close-knit community, given that it's mainly a city geared for the student community, so I think you will enjoy your time there. However, if you are more accustomed to city life, then U of T or Simon Fraser is a better choice.
