U of T CS vs. Waterloo CS

A photo of paperwind paperwind
How do the Computer Science programs at U of T and Waterloo compare in terms of what you learn? Is Waterloo CS more math/logic-oriented than U of T? And for those who have been in either one of these programs, how stressful do you find it to be?

I can't speak for UofT but from what I've seen, if you're in CS to find a job (Which is basically the point of CS anyways), no school can beat UW for the mass opportunities available for CS students. CS of course is quite difficult at UW. From what I've seen in first year, most people find the core courses in UW challenging and I can't speak for upper-years but apparently it only gets more difficult.
