OMG:

Are most international Chinese students part of elite families? Like damn, all these BMWs, mercedes, high tuition rates and I'm here barely able to afford ramen...

  1. Yet they still eat with their mouths open and don't flush after going number one.
    Can't buy class no matter how much money you have.

    1. You sound like a very jealous peasant

    2. Because I said "eat with their mouths open and don't flush after going number one"? Does the truth hurt so much you have to call me a "peasant" because your dad gave access to his money that he made? lol come back when you actually acquired wealth with your own skill and knowledge then call me a "peasant". Also no one is jealous of your dad's money when they see your fancy clothes and car your parents brought you.

    3. I overheard my international student roommates gossip about their other "friends". One girl was going on and on about how another girl didn't spend as much money as she does at Sephora every time they go out. She then says "I'm afraid she just isn't on the same consumer level as we are". She studies communications at Laurier, never ever goes to class, and every other day there's a parcel coming to our place from her online purchases. All the nice things she buys just ends up being tossed on the floor all over the apartment like garbage. This is the exact mentality these people have. No one is jealous of them. More like disgusted.

    4. ^^ Please don't blame your mistakes on me... not my fault when you have 5 brothers and sisters and take out OSAP loans for every member of the family. Get a job and one day you can afford Honda Accord

    5. @1d Ya man really jelly of your dad's money man. Keep on spending your family's fund dude, and keep on doing you and keep on spending your dad's money

  2. Don't stand for that shit. Buy a beater, modify the hell out of it and race for pink slips and work your way up until your top of the pack.

  3. Not most. Most rich kids prefer to stay in bigger cities so they are more likely to be found at UofT or UBC (or in the states). Just look at how many international students we have in Loo and how many good cars there actually are. Btw, I also see many Chinese kids who were born here driving these expensive cars as well.

    2. @3a Actually no, we buy it in cash

  4. Most of my international friends spend way more money on clothes then cars to be honest. I get wanting a sports car or luxury car, but it seems a little unnecessary to be wearing $1000 shoes etc.

  5. Waterloo? not so much. Most elite families' children choose places like UBC or UofT. Even so, what you are seeing is more likely due to survivorship bias. There are many international students who are well integrated and keeps a lower profile, and you won't tell them apart. In other words, it's your idea and perception of what a Chinese international student should look like leading to see more of them.

    1. More like Western and McGill, dude. Toronto's lame if you're looking to party and get fucked for four years and snag a nice diploma along the way. (Remember that U of T asian article in Maclean's?)

      UBC's got game, though. It's just not quite playing at McGill's and Western's level. Better school, though.

      Delete
    2. I like your use of "diploma" 5a, though I'm not sure you meant it as a dig at Western. I'm pretty sure its all white kids there btw.

      Delete
    3. A little bit, I did, lol. I mean, both universities have great programs (especially McGill). But I know a lot of people who to one or the other--some of the same types went to Queen's and uOttawa, too, only fewer; or they head south--medicated the hell out of themselves, scraped by with a major in history, English, marketing, or some such discipline and are now making bank in client-facing roles on Bay St.

      I've got nothing against having hyper-rich parents. You don't pick your parents--my parents do fine and I'm a lucky bastard myself. I just can't take people seriously when they waste their lives like that.

      If you start ahead by a couple miles you should goddamn use it. Pursue excellence in some aspect of life, at least.

  6. plenty of people i know who "go to" UofT does everything else fun other than going to UofT.
    You are probably right about McGill's and Western's.
    UBC definitely has the best cars though.

  7. western has a bunch of rich white kids and alot of rich korean/chinese (a mix of like 50/50 there are alot less koreans at UW)

    UofT and Mcgill have all the elite family kids. UBC has alot of the japanese rich international students (why dont japs go to ontario? anyone know?)

  8. waterloo is mostly middle class

    ReplyDelete
  9. Cause there is only one child per Chinese Family, where do you think they could spend the money. PS, they are middle class family mostly.
    Other than that it cost 25000$/Year for tuition, around 50000$/ per BMW or Mercedes. You can afford tuition, you can afford a car.

    1. The chinese sure like to poorly manage their finances by giving their child a car who has free access to public transit.
      And don't give me "the buses don't take you EXACTLY where you want to go" or "you have to wait too long!!!"

      Delete
    2. And this is why I am amused by non-car people. Most of the BMW's, Audi's and Mercedes being driven around campus are way cheaper than most people would ever guess. Most are base models and used vehicles (35k new, and they depreciate heavily).

      Delete
    3. As an example, I drive an E46 M3. I got a lot of shit from friends and family thinking I paid a ridiculous sum of money 70k+ while in reality it was like 1/4 of that.

      Delete
    4. @9b & 9c You're still are a douche with a car brought with mommy and daddy's money.
      And before you yell coop and how you brought it with your money, why didn't you pay tuition with it and not a car you really don't need? Come on be honest with yourself, you have a car to pick up chicks /look cool and that's it. It's not to get to school or some bs reason, you drive to school to seem cool.
      Whenever I see a student riding a BMW or audi or whatever all i think about how much of daddy's money you spent.

      Delete
    5. 9d, while I agree that a car is not necessary for a university student, you just sound like a jeaous whiny cunt.

      Delete
  10. And 9D's a whiny brat who's parents are covering his/her tuition fees.

    Your ridiculous logic is amusing. By the way, since you obviously know nothing about cars, most people with an older M car are enthusiasts. If I just wanted to pick up chicks i'd go with a regular 3 series since girls don't know the difference.

    1. False, you just can't afford a new BMW that is faster, more agile, and more responsive

      Delete
    2. What's your point 10a?
      You can extend that even further, i.e. you only bought an M4 because you can't afford to buy a GT3RS 4.0 which is better in every way...

      Delete
    3. Maybe because the GT3 doesn't have leather, and he needs something more practical moron. Just because you can afford a Bugatti doesn't mean you should buy it.

      Delete
  11. 9e&10 nah I don't get support from my parents. I get osap and use the money I saved from coop to pay for tuition and rent.
    Have fun wasting money that you didn't earn,

  13. And when there's thousands of Canadian citizens who want to come to Waterloo and need the co op to survive financially, we are giving these (tax-payer subsidized) co-ops to these internationals who don't even need the money

    1. No Canadian company can hire a foreigner over a Canadian citizen of equal qualification for a job. So no, we're not.

      Delete
    2. They can and do 13.a all the time. I've seen it firsthand. Canadians are described as entitled and lazy to many businesses, they'd rather have a international who they can browbeat in regards to the possibility of full time and citizenship to keep them in line. Canadians are just not wanted.

    3. 13b, you're confusing international students in co-op programs with temporary foreign workers. Two very different things.

      I just laugh when I see people who pretend to be rich while using their parent's money lol

    2. Does driving a nice car mean you are pretending to be rich? I don't think so personally. When people ask I tell them my parents cover school, and I can do whatever with my co-op money.

      Delete
    3. And they think in their mind "oh another kid who is spoiled and doesn't understand the value of money, bet his parents are paying for his car also" fyi

    4. Doesn't bother me if someone jumps to that conclusion. Worst case scenario that's just one less person who will talk to me.

    5. Also, must people I know don't understand the value of money at this age - unless you are solely paying for everything yourself.

    1. Why do I have to stop going to this university because I see something I don't like? Also who said I didn't like rich chinese kids spending their dad's money? It seems to me you don't like ME to talk about how YOU spend your papa's money. If you don't like what is said here you don't have to post on here.
      "I am rich" no your family is rich.

    2. I hope you never get that permanent residence status your parents are aching for you to have.

    3. I already have permanent status. It's amazing what you can do when you pay in cash while peasants take out loans and pay with the credit cards to pay for one year old iPhones and fake LV.

    4. @16c hey at least I know I brought with my OWN money and not my dad. But keep on flashing that bling like you earned and paid for yourself like you are in a music video that your dad funded.

  17. LOL at this one chinese kid showing off his dad is rich and making fun of people who gets osap. Are you for real? LOL what the fuck man, are you so far up your own ass to understand showing off your family is rich just makes you look like a spoiled douche. Srs I hope I don't meet you in real life man, I know some people with wealth and they don't act like this at all. Seriously only in china do people order food they don't eat to show off how much they can spend. How can you actually be living a stereotype and keep on typing this bullshit with pride.

    1. I don`t believe this person is Chinese. It looks like a troll trying to make Chinese people look bad. I am from China, and we are taught to be humble, this is not how the majority of people act in our culture.

      Delete
    2. Another guy from mainland China here. What makes you think we're spoiled? We give money to charity as well (much more than you will ever give in your lifetime). My friends are the same, while the people less privileged than us just whine about how life is unfair and never gave a penny to charity.

      Delete
    3. @17b dude you don't get it at all and never will. 17a gets it and understand what is it to be humble but re-read your response... "much more than you will ever give in your lifetime" are you serious? So you give to charity so you can say this people when you drive up with your fancy sports car? That's not what charity is about, it's about giving money to others so they can also feel happiness not to make yourself feel like a saint. You just sound like a spoiled kid who is again yelling about how much money he has and how he can donate SO much to charity.
      Also
      "whine about how life is unfair and never gave a penny to charity"
      I'm guessing that's what rich chinese kids like yourself do when you meet a even richer chinese kid. People who are humble (not you) don't complain because they can't buy the latest clothes and feel satisfied with life but rich pricks like you whine when he can't get his latest iphone and talk about how life is soooooo unfair
      LOL you are a douche.

      Delete
    4. ^ How much did you give to charity, I bet you didn't make as much of a difference with the money you donated. Who said the guy isn't happy? Money is great because you can give to anybody... people shouldn't care if he's acting like douche, but you're superficial enough not to realize that. 'nuf said.

  18. What about us Canadians with nice cars?
