Compared to schools in the United States, Canadian universities are considerably cheaper while also providing a world-class education. Even with scholarship offers to American schools, UBC may still be a cheaper choice in terms of tuition and thus a reason some American students decide to go here. Overall, UBC is fun, provides excellent educational tools, immerses students in a great environment, and is among the world’s top universities. If students went back in time and had to choose their school all over again, many would still select UBC—10 times over. In the consumer tech industry, the term "early adopters" is used to describe consumers that buy tech products as soon as they become available to the market. In the same sense, some students feel like they are "early adopters" to UBC. While UBC does not have the reputation of an Ivy League school (yet), it certainly has the facilities, faculty, and alumni equal to Ivy League universities. Most students are glad to be a part of the “next big thing,” and you can, too—but you better do it soon because tuition fees are rising due to the growing demand for admission.
