I am trying to choose a school for a PhD in Political Science. How do these compare? The University of Toronto, the University of British Columbia, the University of California at Santa Barbara, McGill University, and the University of Michigan?

I have a BA in International Relations and Political Science from the University of British Columbia (UBC) and an M.Phil in International Relations from Oxford.
Now, I am considering doing a PhD in Political Science.
I have been accepted by the University of Toronto; UBC; and the University of California, Santa Barbara. I am still waiting to hear from the University of Michigan and McGill.
How do these five schools compare in terms of overall reputation? How would a degree from each affect my chances of getting an academic job?
If anyone is familiar with the PoliSci PhD process at any of these schools, I would appreciate your thoughts on that as well.
