Waterloo transfer question Geomatics -> Computer Science

I was wondering, how hard is it to transfer into Computer Science at Waterloo? I got an alternate offer for geomatics, but I don't want to major in it.

The courses geomatics requires are:

first sem:

GEOG 101 or 102
GEOG 165
GEOG 281
CS 115

second sem:

GEOG 271
ENVS 178
CS 116


The courses computer science requires are:

first sem:

MATH 135
MATH 137
CS 135

second sem:

MATH 136
MATH 138
CS 136

I read that I could take CS 135 and 136 instead of 115 and 116, but if I want to take the math courses as well, would I have a course overload in first semester? Could I take 6 courses, or am I only allowed to take 5 per semester?

Also, do I absolutely HAVE to take the required courses for geomatics, if I'm certain that I want to transfer? Could I just drop one of the GEOG courses in first semester?

Could I tranfer after first semester, or do I have to complete my first year in geomatics before applying to tranfer?

Finally, is it worth it? I've heard many things about Waterloo being incredibly hard, so I'm also debating going to UTM for undergrad, and getting a Master's at UW.

Thanks!

I know this post is nearly a year old, but as a student in a similar situation, and wondering if this is possible still, would like to know the outcome of what Ziralia has done if he/she is still around.

And as well if anyone has any further info about this.

I will contact them in the same manner as suggested above regarding this, but any further info would be of great help. Thanks
