It depends. All of these schools are good.

Consider (in no particular order):

- environment (do you fit in, do you want to go there, will )
- campus (will you be living on rez, is the campus nice)
- tuition (AFM is expensive, WLU and Schulich aren't)
- co-op (is it that important to you)
- anything else you can think of (eg prestige, do you want to be able to say "I go to schulich")

They are all good schools. Pick the one that is right for YOU.

Depends on what kind of firm you are talking about.

I'm talking about any CA firm. The reason, imo, why AFM may hold more bearing in terms of CA is b/c of their rep and their exemptions. But, if i have a much better chance to get into a firm at schulich or laurier (b/c i've been differed to fm), then i may just have to go there.

It's hard to accurately determine the numbers for FM, since many of the people want finance jobs, and aren't concerned with Big 4 and CATO firms.

13% of FM students are in national or regional public accounting firms (this does not include people at CATOs in industry or government).

Depending on how many actually wanted CATO jobs, this number could be good or bad.

FM definitely won't have better numbers, but I don't think they will be significantly lower than Schulich or Laurier.

is that 13 percent for the co-op students, or 13% for the people who have graduated?

IF you are planning on getting a CA, you'd be making a mistake by not going to Schulich. I am entering my second year at Schulich, and will be switching to Ivey if I decide to specialize in finance. Otherwise, I will be staying at Schulich for accounting.

Why would i be making a mistake by not going to SSB? What does schulich have that makes it amazing for accounting?
