    Waterloo in Canada is a world leading facility for computer science. Their Quantum Computing is fantastic and another DYS family that we know sent their son there. Another family sent their daughter to Ontario and she loved it - the Canadian universities filter out the dross so much more effectively than their US counterparts and she really appreciated the rigour.

    For our 16 year old DYS, she still appears to be focussed on Medicine so we will probably be focussing on trying to optimize the dual constraints of cost and rigour because we want to do our best not to revert 250 years and have our daughter start her working life as an indentured servant bound by her tuition debt.

    The Canadian options show some promise but the region with the mildest winters (BC) is also the most expensive...

    I suggest wool socks and rich foods. wink

    Canada would do well to have your DD study here. Wishing her every success.
