Hello all,

I was curious to see if anyone has information about the cost of living in Toronto as a Schullich MBA student (family of 3). What are the best neighborhoods to live in while studying at Schullich? What's the cost?

Any piece of information is appreciated .. I've never been to Canada

Hi guys, I'm applying to Schulich and I'm from Toronto so I can answer some of the questions.

Cost of living in Toronto is generally high, however, Schulich (York) happens to be located in a not-so-great area of the city. A standard place within walking distance to campus that an undergraduate would live in probably goes for around 600. However, since you have a family of three, you would probably want to rent a better place in the suburbs or a better part of town and drive to school. A two-bedroom condo in a good area probably costs $1500 minimum. A cheap two bedroom apartment near campus (not-so-great area) can probably be had for $1000.

Hey thanks for answering this

Could you please name some of the "good" areas that are within a driving distance?

Btw, congratulations on the 770 GMAT score. Impressive work !

High end after downtown would be Uptown near St.clair subway station.. but this is like expat zone and my favorite area..
2-bedroom in downtown ranges around 2300+ and uptown around 1800+.
since you are driving, you are better off to stay close to York .. not sure on the rent around that area .. .1300 should be a good rent ..

Did you consider other MBA schools? With a score like 770, you could have tried schools ranked 10-20 in US. Even Rotman would have accepted you.
Just curious.. why Schulich? Especially with an incredible score like 770?
