Why are people saying Laurier? is it just cause they offer CO-OP?
Because Rotman is globally recognized + its easier to get into its GRAD program once you graduate from its undergrad commerce program..

^ So yes, Im going to have to say ROTMAN is better than Laurier, although its much harder to stay in, because UOFT has to filter out alot of people who made it by fluke

Laurier is an excellent program and I find Rotman to be flawed in many ways.

If you're confident that you'll get into co-op at Laurier, then that's definitely much better than Rotman's. Otherwise they'll basically provide you with the same opportunities.

Rotman is much better for an MBA imo. Rotman is very asian I've been told in undergrad. This may not be a problem for you, but it may be for others. I will sometimes attend non-DD calculus lectures at UW, and I find it difficult to fit in there simply because I'm caucasian and do not speak a word of Chinese.
Also +1 to co-op as was said above.

Its up to you to decide though.

Depends who are are and what you're good at. Laurier math is easy, however Rotman's is hard. If you're choosing Laurier for co-op, know that 300/800 people get co-op, this is what an admissions officer told me.
If you're going for a CA designation, you have to stay back a semester at Laurier whereas UTM/UFT once you graduate you automatically are done because its an accredited stream.
Rotman offers internship, but remember that its competitive. UTM also offers summer internship

neither are "better" than each other, both will get you the same job in Canada. UofT Rotman has the advantage in terms of international presence. Laurier has co-op. pick whatever school makes you happy

Re: the Rotman undergrad giving you a better shot at the MBA program. This is basically untrue. The MBA program doesn't give any preference Rotman Commerce graduates. When you apply for an MBA, they look at work experience, GMAT, and interviews much more than your undergrad school or even undergrad academic performance.

Since both programs are accredited, why would you have to stay back a semester at Laurier?

-approx. 50% kick/drop out during 1st year
-very competitive
-very asian
-unspirited
-school isnt special, it's just the school name
-good for accounting and economics
-international approach
