Laurier BBA or York Bcom ?

My average is 90 average right now. I got accepted from York for their Bcom program.  My plan is to get my CPA and start my own business after graduation. Deciding between York or Laurier BBA. 

Pros of York Bcom - Toronto, possibility of high GPA, Cheap, Lot of south Asians,  Save money, International Reputation
Cons of York Bcom - Overshadowed by Schulich in terms of opportunities, Student satisfaction 

Pros of Laurier - Has Co-op, Lot of opportunities, Students Satisfaction
Cons of Laurier -  Expensive if you include residence, Risk of not getting Co-op, International reputation, Not many south asians, Outside of Toronto

Any suggestions?

On the diversity aspect, there are a lot of south Asians at laurier too. And tbh it shouldn't be a factor in your consideration. I'm biased, but go with Laurier. You're comparing an above average program with one that's not well known, especially because Schulich towers over it.

I agree, I think Laurier would be a better choice. York is mainly known for Schulich, and you're going to be overshadowed by it. Laurier offers co-op, which is a great way to pay off your tuition and get experience in the field of business

York BComm does not have an international reputation. Don't conflate your own ego into thinking that it is Schulich or equals Schulich. Most people know the difference, or at least the people who matter do.

Not the program I mean the Uni if i were to go to country outside of Canada, they may recognise York University. Whereas laurier is only known in Ontario. Schulich is part of York university..

Does York have a good reputation outside Canada? Because, I don't know if you know this, but it's considered an overall mediocre school IN Canada. The only Canadian universities that have some reputation outside of Canada are U of T and McGill.
