Laurier Double Degree co-op?

A photo of iDoraemon iDoraemon
Hi, if i do a double degree, like BBA and Financial Math, am I guaranteed a co-op spot second year or just a chance for an interview? I heard that at the old forums, but not sure.

Do you mean Financial math? theres no BBA/Finance DD. You can specialize in Finance in your 4th years.

In DD programs you are guaranteed a spot in co-op. This means you're guaranteed the opportunity to apply to jobs. It does NOT guarantee you a job, that's still dependant upon your marks, EC's, and how you interview with employers.

So if you're not in DD, you're not guaranteed a spot? What do you have to do to get in then?

Right - you arent guaranteed a spot. You need atleast a B- average, have strong EC's/volunteer experience, and have a strong interview.

So if you don't do a DD, you will have an interview with people at school AND then one more with employers?

Yes. At the beginning of 2nd year, you will have an interview with the school. You'll be graded. After that you're ranked based upon your grades, EC's and interview. Then the top ~250 are selected, and then you'll begin your applications the next semester.
