  • Great school! I visited McGill in October 2015. I was so impressed with quality of education and the facilities are amazing. I am graduate from the university of Utah, with a degree in French language & literature Pre-law. I am thinking I might would give it a try to attend law school at McGill!!! Beautiful city too!!!
  • Canada's dream school! Set in the heart of the beautiful French city of Montreal, this school has some of the best faculty and programs Canada has to offer. No wonder it's Canada's #1 school (especially for graduate programs and funding). The students are humble and well-diverse since it attracts a lot of international students. You can always find a McGill alum doing something great in any part of the world! It's a shame the school has dropped a couple spots in the world rankings recently (from top 20 to top 25). I really think charging higher tuition for Quebec students can change that!
  • I've been there as a tourist and I really like the place... Lovely walk and nice helping students
  • Great school in a great city near great food but people well staff at the university is very rude!
