McGill's 80-acre main campus is in downtown, at the foot of Mount Royal. Being in the exact middle of downtown, everything is just a few minutes walk away. Shopping is said to be famous on St. Catherine and bars on St. Laurent road. Montreal as a city can offer you food at any cost- from low to super expensive.
With some 300 buildings, the architecture of the campus is very interesting. It has a few Gothic buildings to really old Victorian style buildings and some being Roman style too. The campus is very green and pleasant to be in. Overall it is dotted with statues and grey old style buildings. It is one of the 17 most beautiful campuses in the world by Travel + Leisure magazine. It has beautiful and really old trees. The 'Redpath Museum' on campus is especially a tourist attraction which can transport you back to 68 million years. McCord Museum of Canadian History and Rutherford Museum are also located within the campus.
'Le Salon' built in 1861, is a great place to meet entrepreneurs and coworkers. This building looks like an old-style church because it was one!
Around 3000 students live in on-campus housing. But those are reserved for the first year students. Overall, Montreal as a city is cheaper than Vancouver and Toronto. It is even doable on a $200 budget, but of course, if you have more money to spend, you will find luxurious apartments too. There's a neighbourhood near the east of the downtown campus which is called the 'McGill Ghetto' for so many students live there! The Plateau' and 'Verdun' are popular for comparatively cheaper rents.
Winter is mostly bearable but can get worse at times. Students find it difficult when the winters are six months long. But come summers, it's so glorious that you forget the pain of the winters.
The class sizes are small for graduate students. The professors and TAs are friendly and approachable. The exam evaluation and markings can be difficult for international students to understand but they may have to approach the professors to understand the grading system. Engineering professors are said to be particularly top-notch and experts in their fields.
Students should not expect professors to give extra credits because they won't. The academic standards here are very high.
For Quebec students, the courses are ridiculously cheap. For an international student, the fees may go upwards $40,000 for an MBA. Engineering may cost above $10,000. Engineering and science are the costliest. Arts and management are the cheapest. For financial aid, you can apply for a research based fellowship or apply to be a Teacher's Assistant. International students are specifically eligible for McGill Financial Aid. If you know French, it is an added advantage.
As a student, you can work up to 20 CAD per hour during college and not more. You can expect to make around 800 CAD per month off campus.
The New office of Google in Canada is right opposite McGill University. Microsoft is one of the major recruiters from McGill and it is said that most decently intelligent people make it McGill. Students say if you get decent grades, getting a good job won't be an issue. If you want to get into big banks like Goldman Sachs, McGill is the place. The career services department takes proper workshops and mock interviews to prepare you for the final job interviews. Apart from that, the startup scene is good too. So you can get resourceful internships too.
McGill University is a no brainer if you want to pursue Computer Science and Engineering. Some students find college uncomfortable but seniors say that McGill expects you to be an adult. They won't spoon feed you. If you want to be earning grades, you have to work for it and there are no easy As. It's not a school to choose if you want to be a top athlete. There are other schools for that. It is easy to feel rejected seeing the big campus and the big classrooms but students must make additional efforts to participate in things around them. Montreal is very liberal and tolerant to the LGBT community too.
