What are you looking to do after uni?

AFM-FM is good if you want to go into finance, and it is good for accounting but you don't get access to the CA jobs and the tuition is insanely high.

I would eliminate 4 and 5 from your list, and narrow it down to Laurier, Waterloo and UTSC. UTSC may be cheap if you're in the GTA, but personanly I would choose Laurier.

I'm looking for that university away from home feel, so I'm trying hard to exclude UTSC (I live in GTA). Between Laurier and AFM, I think I'll enjoy it far more at Laurier, but I'm guaranteed coop at AFM. Thus, it's a tough choice.

UW has a kinda crappy feel to it. You can make it what you want it, but Laurier has a MUCH better atmosphere, more parties and better girls ;)

Haha, Laurier does seem exciting. Might I ask why you chose Nipissing over Laurier:O?

If you're really looking for that university life then go Laurier, and + its program is pretty good.

EDIT: On second thought you were accepted to HBBA, did you apply to the BBA? If so, and you were rejected.. then I think Mac would be the best.

HBBA = Honours Bachelor of Business Administration, or BBA for short

Yup, I guess it will be Laurier for me. I really wish I applied to Schulich though: /

Thanks for the help so far:P

Don't sweat it! Laurier has a great business program. It's UFE passing rates are outstanding, and the co-op is a major plus. The student life (of what I've heard) is amazing, overall the program is highly regarded. It is also accredited by CICA, so you can get your hours for CA done if you looking for that. Don't worry about it now. It's too late to go back and it's no use regretting it. Make the best of your next few years, Best of luck!!

Sorry to burst your bubble, but you aren't GUARANTEED co-op here at Waterloo (there's no guarantees). A lot of people do end up at pretty dead end jobs (and even end up volunteering in some situations), so don't let co-op be the deciding factor. As someone who is in Waterloo accounting, I would say choose Laurier over AFM-FM.
