Having graduated from McGill University (Montreal), I can say with
confidence that most American's have no idea of the quality of the
Universities in Canada.  More than once I have been asked:

"So McGill, that is good school, right?"  harumph!

Why is it that Canadian seem to have a relatively complete knowledge of the
schools in the US, and not vice versa?

Of course, having to shovel our way to classes did cut down on the actual
instruction time :-)

That is, when we weren't out clubbing some baby Harp seals :-))
