Co-op or non co-op for UTSC Management?

A photo of cocoappleli cocoappleli
Should I apply for the co-op one or the regular program for management?
I know that co-op is definitely better, but I'm scared I'm not able to get in... So I'm thinking of apply for the regular one so that I have a more chance of getting in.... Should I do that?

Is it possible to apply for both? If so, do that.

I doubt they will let you apply to both (although it is something to look into), but it's possible that the alternate offer to co-op is non co-op. If this is the case, there is no reason not to apply to co-op. Otherwise, I would wait before applying and see how much you can up your average in the meantime. You will have to weigh the loss of co-op against the loss of not getting into the program altogether. Personally I'd be banking on getting into co-op, but others would rather go the safe route. It'll be up to you to decide.

No I think I can only choose one...
Yes, they say that they will consider me for the non co-op one if I don't make it for co-op. But there's still no guarentees... So I don't know if I should go the safe route or take a risk.

My current marks are:

Data Management: 91 (I'll try my best to get 94% by the end of this semester)
Sports and Entertainment Marketing: 90 (I'll try my best to get 94% or 95%)
Advanced Functions: 97 (That's final, because I took it last year)

CO-OP!!! a high 80 average will do just fine, and if you get lower than that, you should be getting an alternative offer. (I know people who've received pre-mgmt and mgmt instead of coop). Also, this gives you some added incentive to push you to do well ;D

But wouldn't regular be "safer"? Or is it kind of the same, because even if I don't get co-op, I'll definitely get into the regular program?

You should just apply to the co-op management program, cause say you don't get accepted to that they would offer you an alternative option (usually the non co-op or pre program). So technically it's safer to go with the co-op program. Your average seems good enough, but I know some people with high 80's who did not get in cause of their supplementary application. So make sure you really write that well!
