at the present moment I'd say Mcgill Management as my first choice, and obviously being the crazy nut that i am I can't help but start daydreaming about living in residence and the incredible times to follow
is anyone else thinking Mcgill and if so have you given any thought about residence? I'd love to hear other people opinions as to what would be their preferred choices

McGill's my number one choice. I visited at the open house and was extreeemely impressed by the hotel residence. They're basically dorms in that you share the room with a roommate but you have your own bathroom in the room rather than having one for the entire floor. The rooms are big since it was a hotel and the buildings are really nice as they were 4-star hotels.

I visited both hotel-style residences, New Res and Carrefour Sherbrooke. If you have any specific questions I can answer as best I can.

I'm looking at McGill (50-50 chance as my sig indicates) and would be living on campus. I've heard that the hotel res is really snobby; my friend recommended I avoid it. My top choices are RVC (formerly co-ed, apparently the closest res with the best food) and Douglas (lots of scholarship winners). Depends what you're looking for though (Molson is supposed to be a party res, while Solin is apartment-style and a ways off campus).

New Res is snobby and is too far away, but they have a pretty amazing lobby. Carrefour is a alright but everyone has a roommate (they're actually like maybe a 5 min walk from campus).

I live in RVC. We have the best food on campus (they serve ribs and steak but the prices are insane) and there's nothing like waking up 5 mins before class and walking across the street to your lecture. I think RVC singles have an insane amount of shelving. Technically I think Greenbriar has a slightly better location depending on which faculty you're in. RVC is closer to the chem and math buildings whereas Greenbriar is closer to the arts buildings.

Don't choose Solin.

How are you finding the social scene at RVC? I heard it used to be a pretty quiet rez when it was all girls.

The west wing (all girls part) is pretty quiet. The co-ed side is half and half. You have the party floors and you have the dead floors. My floor is pretty awesome - everyone knows everyone and we chill in the hallways. But it's a relatively small res and you have some people who just study all day. I'd say the social scene is better in upper res but I'm too lazy to do the walk.

question:
I know the non-hotel dorms don't provide televisions as the hotel ones do. Would it be possible/permitted to bring/buy our own television and hook it up with a dvd player in our own room? Has anyone ever heard of anyone doing this?

I am so glad I came to McGill. Really... I can not recommend it enough. Especially if you're the type of person who likes to go out and party a lot.

As for residence: apply for a double at Greenbriar, that is the best place you can end up. After that, I'd choose one of the upper residences - Gardner and Molson especially.

One of my friends has a tv in his room (he doesn't live in C4/New res) - no one has raised an issue with that..

I can't believe I haven't given this a serious enough thought before. If McGill accepts me I most likely will accept it no matter what (dream school is dreamy after all). razz

Does anyone have more information on the social scene of respective rez?

I want to go to McGill, but I'm still debating between McGill and Queens. I'm looking towards studying computer science.
Anyways, I don't know if I'd rather have the night life or school spirit worry

I am in molson hall, and I have to say its the most ridiculous thing ever, it has a well earned reputation of being a party rez. If you have to study you go to the library, or the study room. Disadvantage is that BMH food sucks, but RVC is on our meal plan so you can eat most meals there.

I'd be stoked on a single, but I don't want to be in any of the "party" residences.
