    UMinnesota vs UofToronto vs Rochester

    Sponsored Ad:
    I'm trying to make the mental decision of which of these I'd accept.

    UMinn (a bit similarly to UMich) have had relatively weaker recent placements compared to their historical average, URochester seems to be keeping up good placements in line with its historicals but is typically not as fondly namedropped as the previous two. UToronto on the other hand to often get cold water thrown on it by some of my professors and places like EconJobRumors, but their placements have been much stronger in the last two years in particular.

    Would you bank on a historically solid program like UMinn/URochester or a potential up and comer (but non-US, hence not as widely respected) program such as UofT?

    lol you're from HEC Montreal, of course they are going to sh!t on U of T. You shouldn't even ask them for their opinion on Toronto.

    Congratulations mate! I think you should go the Toronto to prove your school is the best and they are just ****! And then save me from Minnesota’s waitlist.

    hah, the fact that you didn't even apply to UofT says something.

    I did another degree in the US after the one at HEC, profs are telling me similar things about U of T, just saying. I think it gets a bad rap personally.

    They don't have a bad rap. They are an excellent department with an excellent PhD program.

    My best guess is you are exaggerating the opinion of one faculty member. Don't spew nonsense about a department so publicly.

    For the record, I have zero affiliation with the department besides being accepted a few years back.

    Wanting to get informed = spewing nonesense. Is this EJRs?
