i lived in london, had friends in oshawa and family in toronto. both my ex and her brother (and like a quarter of the city) went to fanshawe . i think i might have a cousin in hamilton - i remember he wanted to study there but i don't remember what came out of that.
Yeah excellent college too bad toronto is a shit show. George brown seems decent I suppose.
Depends on the programs in Toronto. There are programs outside the city u wouldn't get in toronto. Toronto is a competitive zone so you need to jump through hoops to get anywhere good. Small businesses wouldn't even look at you unless you have some kind of training or experience.

I certainly agree with you to a certain extent in that I found public school K-12 to be a waste of time. College on the other hand was definitely a good experience maybe because I had professors that wanted us to challenge ourselves and think deeply about many issues. Actually, I balanced my experiences by taking 50% of my professors designated as being very difficult because they had sad faces at ratemyprofessors and the other 50% with happy faces. Always great to maximize your experiences.

School degrades knowledge and life experiences into a classroom when they should be experienced outside the classroom.
I actually feel this a lot about certain subjects. There should be a balance.
@EffEmDoubleyou's example is completely ludicrous, but for many topics, I am in full agreement with you.
In fact after three years as a Lit major, I began to feel like I was being forced to actually formulate my opinions and interpretations to what professors wanted to hear.
Not only that, but I also wrote some papers in college that were based on compare/contrast of essays written by grad students working on MA in some kind of literature, and I realized that some of their interpretations were borderline insane.
I realized I could go to grad school and get a degree projecting my own childhood traumas on to other people's books.
I'd rather just write books of my own.
