Comp Sci at UofT

A photo of avp avp
How is computer science at UofT like compared to let's say UW in which all they do in the first year is math math and more math...

Is this true for UofT also?

Which university is better for computer science?

:) :)

i chose waterloo over UofT because i heard that UW was more hands on and UofT was more theoretical

in my views, employers would prefer having a more hands on employee. especially in this field (unless you want to get a phD and research...)

however, both uni's are amazing. the thing that should make or break your decision is the intellectual environment... would you rather live in a big loud city? or a small quiet town 1 hour away from toronto... (friday night parties xD)

personally, my first choice is UW for computer science coop :)
