  1. If you come to UBC you can look forward to:

    -Marginally but not significantly lower tuition.

    -Class sizes between 90 and 250 students for all first year classes.

    -An arts faculty that requires you to take 12 credits (thats 4 classes)of language, 6 Credits of English, and 6 credits of Literature. Why? Because English and Humanities want a bigger slice of the pie. You essentially get your education held hostage by a bunch of bitter departments that want to be significant, and somehow manage to have extensive sway over the arts faculty. BTW arts includes all humanities amd social sciences. As an Econ major I have to take literature! That is #$%#ing ridiculous. Moreover the english department treats things worse than highschool. If you miss more than three classes you have to re-do the course.

    -Paying for everything. Gym Membership is $250 even as a member of a school team. Text books will run you about $750 to $1000 per term. Swiming pool $4 every time you use it unless you want to swim between 5 and 6 pm Monday to Friday.

    -A Residence where the heat will be off for weeks and then be blasting for the next couple days. You have no control over your room temperature besides opening a window. Showers will only go hot one out of every four or so times you want to use them.

    -Meal plan that charges you about $1750 in overhead, and then sells food at well above input prices. I have all but exhausted a $3200 meal plan in 3 months. I could eat out every meal and have my food cost less. All in all my total food expense will be in the realm of $4200 +.

    -Absolutly useless Academic advising who have actually made it necessary for me to take spring classes to finish my degree on time, due to the fact that they failed to let me know usefull pieces of information like: You can only take one english course at a time if you are not an english major.

    -Absolut inflexability in when you can take necessary pre-requisite courses. For example the only time they offer introductory integral calculus is inseccon term winter semester. This means that if you change programs in first or seccond year you can count on wasting half a year taking classes you don't really need until you can take the one course that is a pre-req for all the new classes you need.

    Having been to both UofC and UBC, the only advantages UBC has are marginally smaller class sizes and marginally better quality of instruction in some fields.



     
  2. Gee, it's nice to go to a decent university... I didn't know they were so lame out there.
     
  3. pay for the gym and pool? what is this, the USA? <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>
     
  4. UofC has a far bigger gym and they don't even make you pay. If we are talking scale though, it is nowhere close to the size of the Gym at WSU (I use that for comparison, because that is the only US school gym that i have seen)and it has nowhere close to the quality of equiptment. Besides I would Imagine that at US schools the gym and pool would be free for all sports teams.
     
  5. any US schools i know of, includin mine, the gym and pool and what not are all free for all students. the sports teams can get priority on certain things, but also have some special facilities near our coliseum.
     
  6. Yeah, that sounds about like every other school in Canada.
     
  7. I will during the summer...

  13. frik man, im about 40 minutes up the street. i get:

    -Unreal tuition rates. 23 000$ a year.

    -Not paying for gym. paying 200 for text books. (it would probably be 600$, but i didn't buy a bunch, i just use my roomates) No swimming pool.

    -A residence where the heat is on all the time. Sucked in September when it was warm, but now its nice.

    -Your meal plan is unreal expensive. Mine was 1200, i have 300$ left.

    -useless academic advising if you know what you are doing. Maybe they are good, who knows.

    -not bad flexability. Small school, only 4000 students, so some classes only have like, 2 times a semester.

    -class sizes go like this: 150, 14, 67, 33, 30, 18, 52
     
  14. OK, suckas.

    4 mo old.

  20. Thanks, Moo. My Mom made me a huge scrapbook for my birthday this year, it was full of good stuff.
     
  21. Anwser this simple question, Why is this a thread?
     
  22. Someone created it, apparantly.
     
  23. i made a thread asking people to post recent pics of themselves...this is just a twist on it


    and it's not like you can lecture anyone on crap threads because:

    1. this isn't a crap thread
    2. you make the worst threads ever

    go away you idiot.


    and i guess we'll have to wait a couple of years before we can see you're "little kid" picture...but at that time it would be the most recent one you have, eh?
     
  24. How is this thread not a "crap thread"?
