AFM-FM could very well be faster.

^ AFM-FM is catering rather specifically to such a stream. You cannot expect Rotman to match the knowledge you will gain from Waterloo.

Probably AFM-PA. Or Schulich.

2.) Probably AFM-PA. honourable mention to Schulich, Laurier and Queen's.

I think you insult Laurier and Queen's by placing them alongside that junkyard.

You can (potentially) right the UFE 1 year earlier than you would at UW/Queen's/Laurier, and they definitely have some great recruitment there.

There is enough people choosing it, doesn't mean it's the best or right for everyone.

They will probably end up being the same- might be slightly easier to land CATO co-ops at Waterloo than CATO internships at Rotman

That's a pretty bold statement.

Only as bold as the anti-U of T mentality of the writer.

AFM by a long shot. Note that the reputation will do you no good if you fail out the school.

Rotman is known for...Erghm. Well, it's part of U of T. And U of T is known for Michael Ignatieff.

1. Yes.

2. Waterloo's BAFM program only has 39 credit-hours, but the MAcc program or the Diploma Program offered by Waterloo have the remaining credits, plus in the MAcc you can specialize in tax, audit, etc.

3. It means that you will need to complete the MAcc or Diploma Program to get your CA credits.

4. You will get direct entry to the MAcc program as long as your average is 75 or higher coming from the BAFM program. You might (might) get in with a tad under 75 if you show strength in other areas and have high marks in the core courses. You will get direct entry to the Diploma Program as long as you meet the progression requirements for BAFM (so basically as long as you pass)
