A photo of brucetang1 brucetang1

BMOS+IVEY
Rotaman Commerce
Laurier BBA

I am thinking of going to ivey but the first two years in Western are kinda....wasted
The coop opportunity in Laurier is tempting too

so....which one do you think is better?

I didn't apply to Western because of their AEO structure. There are many different reasons why you would choose each program.

Ivey-Best program out of the three.
Rotman-Prestigious name, excellent commerce faculty.
Laurier-COOP nuff said.

I wouldn't touch Rotman with a 10-foot pole. The bell curve makes it hard to achieve decent grades.

If I were you, I would go to Laurier and apply for Ivey after my second year. I don't believe Laurier has a bell curve (can anyone confirm this?) so it would be easier to get competitive marks. If you want to go into Finance, Ivey is king.

Don't quite get what u mean by wasted?...Do u mean that it is too easy for u?
let me point out a few points.
-You don't have coop for ur 1st year and it's not guaranteed in ur 2nd year neither.
-If you are not able to maintain a good mark or ecs, you'll be stuck with Laurier. Laurier is a wonderful university, but if u intend to go to Ivey in your 3 rd year, why not just stick with BMOS? You also know that you can major in Economics or other programs if you believe that BMOS is "wasting" your 1st two years.
