Desautels: Honours Investment Management or Major in Mathematics (insight?)

A photo of jessiexo jessiexo
Heyy,

I was wondering if any current Desautels students (or anyone that has insight really) into these programs can give me some information about it.

Honours Investment Management

Major in Mathematics

http://www.mcgill.ca/desautels/bcom/program_info/course_info/majors/math/


If I'm a stronger math/science student (all 95+, IB 7) than english/writing student (low 90s, IB 6) should I just go into Mathematics? I am interested in the Honours Investment Management but I'd like to know how much is wishy-washy writing stuff (I know it says it is quantitative but it also says to be good in writing).

Would the Major be a big disadvantage when applying to grad schools? (since honours are more respected). And which one would be better for finance & getting into a top grad school?

Thanks :)
