Well, the year prior to mine, I know 60 out of 160 kids in the co-op program got a placement (roughly 38%). This is due to expansion of the program and unfavourable economic conditions. I imagine for my year the placement will be much higher, partly because something like 52% of the kids did not meet the minimum major average this year in BAcc, and firms are highering more now that economic conditions are marginially improving. We had a weekly co-op class which prepared us for what to expect in co-op, and if you are good at networking you shouldn't have a problem.

I would not say it's really hard, contrary to the 52% of kids not meeting their major average (70%). I finished first year with an 83, and second semester i went out 4 nights a week. I found it very manageable and still had enough time to maintain an active social life, where other people I know really struggled. It is really all based on study habits however, which is the case at every university.

Subject wise, first year you will start off with a mix of Financial and Managerial (Cost) accounting. The financial portion will be a review from high school, but remember its a review for everyone, and they succeed at making the exam very tricky. You have weekly assignments in accounting which are very short and beneficial. Other courses include Economics, stats, Business Law, and a business modeling course which was really interesting. You don't have much flexibility in terms of what aspects of accounting you study later on, so you better like it.

Nah, you take Stats and Calculus.

Stats was easy, and I didn't do Data management. The Calculus course was for kids who had never taken calculus before, first half was easy, integrals are integrals. If you don't do any work you will most likely not succeed however.
