Re: Advices for a future exchange student

Hello again!

For those who don't remember or don't know me from the first message, I'm a PHP/Ruby dev from Rio de Janeiro. More info can be found down there =)

Well, the news are a little bit sad: I've not been selected to uOttawa, but to Dalhousie.
I got reeeeally amazed about how well I've been received here, but... no luck this time =(

So I'm here to ask if there's any UG in that region. The only things I could find in the internet were Microsoft groups and a JS Meetup group (that I've already subscribed).
Also... Maybe anyone here would have a tip about a place to rent (furnished, please) near Dalhousie? xD

Thanks so much for your help and support!

I'm a PHP/Ruby developer from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and I'm applying for a one-year exchange program for undergraduate studies. I have to opt between Canada and Australia.
I'm currently in the second half of my Information Systems course, and I'm looking to improve my abilities with interfaces, web technologies, performance and, secondly, project management.

I'm a little bit inclined to choose Canada, but I'm collecting some opinions at this time. If I choose Canada and get approved, I'll be sent to one of these four institutions: Laval (that's unlikely, since I'm applying for english classes) Alberta, Dalhousie and Ottawa.
The program chooses the university based on my current course and needs; I've read a little bit about them, and I think I would be sent to Dalhousie (Halifax) or Ottawa.

What do you think/know about those cities and universities? And how about their courses?
Any, ANY information would be sooo appreciated (:

Thanks in advance for your attention!
