I was just wondering why he hadn't included Brock.
Brock Accounting is one of the better programs in the province if you are looking at obtaining your CA designation. You get all 51 credit hours at Brock, 16 months work experience through the co-op program (assuming you get a placement), and it's cheaper than Waterloo.

I planning to go in the accounting direction. Whats the marks you need to get in Brock?
Could someone name some top accounting school?
I heard Ryerson is going to have a accounting program, does anyone know anything about it?
I live in Waterloo right and I know Waterloo has a really good program and Laurier is great for business too but I'm thinking of moving out of this area since I've been living here all my life.

I'll just answer the top accounting schools part.
Best ones are Waterloo and Schulich. Other great ones are Ivey, Queens, Brock, and Laurier.

To the OP, are you starting your first co-op session next semester? If so, how difficult was it to land the co-op job?

An 84 or so should get you into the accounting co-op program. Over 80 will get you into accounting non co-op.

Yes i am starting my first co-op term next semester (Winter semester of 2nd year).

Landing a co-op job was somewhat difficult. Networking was a big plus for me and it helped me land one of my offers which i ended up going with. I did have multiple offers. There seemed to be more big 4 acceptances this year than in the past couple of years at Brock as well. The co-op process is extremely competitive at any school. I would be EXTREMELY surprised if any school can truthfully post a CATO rate above 60%. Brock's is around 40-50.

I had an 82 average with pretty decent extra curriculars (I volunteered abroad over spring break and was in the Brock Finance Club). In first year I didn't find it overly difficult to get decent marks. I could have done a lot better if I didn't spend all of my free time being social. Brock has lower admission averages and the majority of students tend to have lower averages, this makes it relatively easy to stand out among your class. The odds are if I had gone to Waterloo with the same average, I wouldn't have had the same job offers. The accounting firms tend to hire equally among schools based on the size of their programs, not "prestige" lol.

What sort of networking did you do? What does CATO stand for?

Brock had a number of CA nights where representatives from various size firms came. I met people at firms I was interested in applying at, and it made a big difference during interviews. I did have a family friend introduce me to a recruiter at another firm which was a big plus.

CATO = CA Training Offices (Official ones where you can get CA accredited hours in Tax, Audit etc.). Not all Accounting Firms are CATO's

I also have a questions. I've applied for Brock's BBA coop, and I regret now because Brock's best program is BAcc. BTW, what do think about BBA's coop? do you think the coop offers are good? Or very competitive?

I think you'd be VERY safe with a low 90's average, not only at Brock but pretty much everywhere.

You can still apply to BAcc co-op. When i was applying I didn't apply to BAcc co-op until mid May. (I was in BBA co-op already at that point).

BBA Co-op is a pretty general business degree with a summer co-op option. Brock does have some pretty decent connections within the Niagara region and the GTA. The co-op office will set up a job board where all of Brock's affiliate companies, ranging anywhere from banks to mining companies, will post openings for summer positions which is very helpful. Any co-op program is competitive in general, so getting good marks should be one of your top priorities if you are set on a co-op position at a top company.

There are no supplementry forms to fill out at Brock and you will be VERY safe witha low 90s average.

Very good question, and one I don't think I really have the answer to...

Without going back to first year, you are automatically ruled out of the co-op stream. It depends what Brock accepts from the courses you have already completed as prerequisits for later years in BAcc non co-op. My reccomendation is to contact Brock admissions as they might have a better answer for you.

Queen's is the best.

It goes like this for accounting - Queen's > Schulich > Ivey > Waterloo > Schools for idiots

already did, this morning. f@g. how much do you squat?



Calling me a bleep? Can you stop discouraging others by calling other schools crap? I'm sure there have been some successful people from " school for idiots" that have gone further in life then the schools you recall greater.

And I Bench 250, Squat 230, DL 275.
