doing CA with a BSc.

Is it true that employers prefer CAs who have BBA/BComm. degree versus BSc./BA? I'm not so sure at this point if I want to do a CA.

I don't think it is possible to get your CA with a BSc, unless you do a DD (or you could take courses at other schools and in summer and take forever and maybe just maybe get them all but that would be insane).

There is 51 credit-hours required to beome a CA. You're not going to come close on electives alone. If you took extra electives and summer classes and went and took courses at other schools and some through distance education/learning or w e, you could probably do it. If you really want a BSc and a CA, then the Waterloo/Laurier BBA/BSc is the best option, and the really only sane option.

Absolutely not true. I'm working at a Big4 for my Co-op term, and the firms hire a diverse group of students.

If you want to get a BSc. with your CA, I reccomend doing the Biotechnology/CA program at the University of Waterloo.

I also know another route where people get their science degrees for their undergrad, and then pursue the MMPA (from university of Toronto) to get their 51 credit hours to qualify as a CA.

Maybe a double degree with UWO science and Ivey HBA? It will take 5 1/2 years though. 1 Year for double degree, and half year to fulfill CA requirements.
