Brock BAcc > UOttawa

UOttawa > Brock BBA

If you want to become a CA, which so many do that I am assuming that.

thanks. well, i was only considering ottawa mainly because it was closer to government places so i figured co-op might be easier and at least there i know one person going; at brock i don't know anyone. anyway, i saw that ottawa said that in order to get co-op you need like 8.0 cgpa. i couldn't find an approximate percentage for this, so i was wodnering if someone could help me with that. also, for the brock program is it like guranteed to get the co-op or is it based on the first year uni marks too and if so, what mark do you need?

I think there is a minimum CGPA you need to keep (6 or 6.5 maybe? I don't remember, kiddinaround can answer that) to stay in the co-op program at Brock. Co-op is "guaranteed" other than this minimum average, but that does not mean you will get a co-op placement. Only 38% of people get jobs, or something like that.

The entire first part was Brock. 6, 6.5 or 7 ring bells for the minimum CGPA, or maybe I am pulling numbers from thin air. It will be on their website. The 38% was told to me my a Brock student.
