Right, when I wrote "career plan changes" I mostly meant that they end up studying a subject different from their previous best guess (if they had one) at least partly for EA reasons. (Or at a different university, e.g. a top school.)

I really don't think doing your undergrad at a "top school" is as important in Canada as it is in the US or UK, and I'm not sure it's worth the money for a Canadian undergrad to study out of the country.
