How is McGill MBB/Tier 2 Placement

 Did some Linkedin searching, most alumni work in Montreal, New York, and Dubai/Abu Dhabi offices. On average how many grads does McGill place into MBB? I understand Ivey probably dominates in Toronto, but I'm more inclined to work in Montreal or at an international office, specifically the ME region.

^ The recruiting numbers above were for the class of 2019. I don't specifically know numbers for McGill for their consulting in Montreal but I know they should send around 1-3 kids per firm MBB. However, I don't know if that's for Toronto or US or maybe even both. But those were the numbers I heard.

McGill still places well at MBB in Toronto - there's a ton of grads starting FT 2020.

It's generally easier to get into the Montreal office, as McGill dominates there. In Toronto, McGill would face competition with Ivey, and to a lower extent UofT.

McGill stateside peer institutions like UVA and UMich place about 20-25 overall, would you say McGill places a comparable number?

I know that McGill is 3rd in Canada for IB and consulting. Obviously would say Queens does a lot better than McGill and Ivey does a lot better than Queens. Even with the H1B restrictions Ivey sent 10% of their students(roughly 60-70 people) to the US mostly across high finance including management consulting. I would say McGill is an amazing school none the less and probably has a complete monopoly on Montreal recruiting. However, for Toronto and US, nothing beats Ivey and then I would say Queens would be second.

Your point definitely true in Canada, but for the Northeast, it's Ivey (slightly better placement) = McGill > Queens. OP also asked Internationally, in the Middle East & Europe Ivey/Queens have simply no name recognition. McGill is much better internationally.
