Just wondering how all the upper rez's differ? (McConel, Molson, Gardner and Douglas)

Also, how bad is the hill?

Thanks

"Differ" in what way? Did you look at the website first?

The hill isn't really that bad. Most of it is a gradual slope. After the first few weeks, I rarely heard anyone complain about the walk up.

Which one is the nicest building? Which one is the most convenient? Which one is the party one or the studious one? What is the reputation for each upper rez? Any info is appreciated

The McGill Residences website is a good resource to find out how they differ logistically (ie. co-ed, not co-ed, layouts etc.). I lived at Douglas Hall this year and it was the best experience of my life. It's known to be the "study" rez although that really didn't seem to be the case as far as I am concerned. It's a beautiful, historic building with a lot of common space and a very tight knit community. Absolutely loved it. Of the other upper rezes, Molson is known to be the party rez but don't get too hung up on stereotypes - it all depends on the people who end up there each year. Every rez will have parties and every rez will have students who study more than they breathe. If you go in with a positive attitude, you'll have fun no matter where you end up.

Also, the hill isn't really bad at all. Keeps the freshman 15 off.

Have you heard that Molson is hard to study in/ too much partying?
How often do people in Molson or Douglas usually go out a week

Again, it's hard to say in terms of everyone at a certain rez. I knew people at Doug who went out 4 days a week and some who didn't go out a single time all year. It's all based on who you are, who your friends are and how often you want to (and can afford to) go out. I think Molson is better known for having parties in the actual rez whereas that wasn't the case at Douglas. Everyone at Douglas was a scholarship winner and so it was known to be a studious rez based on that fact (don't get me wrong, people partied there a lot too! There won't be a single rez at University that doesn't party).
