Current Second Year WLU BBA W/Co-op

10 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 02, 2015 UTC by L. Renta
Hello guys,

I am a second year BBA W/ Co-op with plans on majoring in finance and minoring in economics. I will be working at a top ranked asset management firm on bay street as a part of my co-op program, this up coming summer. Feel free to ask any questions regarding why I choose Laurier, why I think its a better choice than other schools ( of course this opinion is biased) or any other questions regarding school life etc.

My current Status:
Function: 80
Calculus: 87
Food and Nutrition: 92
English (private School): 86
Biology (private school): 88
Computer Science: 86

3rd Year Brock BBA/BAcc Co-op student, ask me anything!

35 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 02, 2015 UTC by Anonymous

I'm basically always on here so figured might as well make one of these and help out any prospective students. 

- First 2 years spent as BBA Co-op student, secured first coop term through BBA
- Transferred into BAcc Co-op after 2 years
- Currently on co-op

You kinda get the best of both worlds since I have been in all (both) the programs offered at the Goodman School of Business!

And since I know these are gonna be popular Qs:

- Avg (both major and overall) ~80%
- ECs: Leadership position in a club, some entrepreneurial stuff, sports stuff
- Work XP: General accounting internship at no-name organization doing very basic stuff, manual labour

Since attending Brock, I have received interview requests from (in no particular order):
RBC x2, Canadian Tire Financial Services, Imperial Oil (Alberta), Ontario Securities Commission (CPA Approved), Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, Big 4 Audit (Toronto), Suncor (Alberta),, and CPP Investment Board.

Note: These were not all co-op positions, some were just summer internship interviews.

- Rejected from BAcc Co-op
- Accepted to BBA Co-op with 83.5% top 6

So feel free to ask me anything and I'll try to answer your Qs as best as I can!

*Even if nobody has posted in this topic for a while, feel free to do so, chances are I'm still lurking on here

Importance of Linux for UW Compsci

The recent post about a laptop for UW eng reminded me of something:

I heard from a few people that having linux or being able to run linux software is critical to passing certain courses at UW. Of course I can run software in a virtualbox, but its clunky and slow and uneffective.

Is it worth sideloading Linux onto my laptop? Or am I not going to need it at UW?

Management Engineering at Waterloo

16 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 02, 2015 UTC by mar le
Hi, I've been hearing some varying things about MAnagement Engineering at waterloo.

Some older posts say its not "accredited" (not sure what that means), while some other posts indicate it as not being as respected. 

I really would like to go into a engineering program with good job prospectives after graduation, however I would like to have a business component to my education. 

Mt marks are mid-80s so I'm not sure I'll get in anywhere else.

If someone could clarify or just tell me your thought on the management engineering program, that would be cool! Thanks!

Carleton University, Brock University or Mcmaster?

I am having a huge dilemma whether to go to Brock or Carleton. I've applied to Brock, Carleton, McMaster and Guelph but I don't really want to go to guelph anymore and McMaster is losing my interest. 

Ive applied to Criminology and Criminal Justice in Concentration of Psychology at Carleton, Psychology and Socio at Brock (got accepted) and Socio at McMaster. If anyone knows details about these programs especially the one at Carleton, please tell me because it's a program that isn't available anywhere else. Ultimately, I want to do Criminology and Psychology. 

*** I want to choose a school that has a great social life and night life in the city, cultural diversity is also important to me as well as an accepting community. I also like school spirit***


If anyone goes to any of these schools or has heard things about it please let me know! I want all the info I can get. Thanks guys!!

Laurier vs. Mac vs. Guelph. (Business / commerce)

4 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 02, 2015 UTC by L. Renta
Accepted to Laurier and Acadia, waiting for : Mac commerce, Guelph Marketing mgmt. and St. F.X business. Long term I'm leaning towards a career in marketing or human resources. I'm encouraged by my acceptance to Laurier BUT ... am I a second class citizen there if I DON'T get in to the co-op program ??? In everyone's esteemed opinion, how do the above schools stack up for business/commerce ? I'll have a final admissions average of 90% or just shy of it. I didn't want to apply to Queen's (my brother is there, gotta go my own way !) or Western-Ivey (would rather have a 4 year business specific degree than a chance at a 2 year business degree). Your thoughts ???

So I've always been confused about this. On employment reports of undergrad schools like Ivey, Mcgill, queens etc, it shows percentage of people that went into consulting. Is this right out of undergrad? or is it long term surveys. 

So my question is do people go into consulting right away or do you need experience first to consult
