ALMOST applied to this program - it seems like a very good idea, just not well put together. You don't take certain core upper year CS courses that CS majors will take. It almost seems like you become a jack of all trades, master of none kind of thing.

With that being said, it definitely can give you the tools to become potentially very successful.

i did!

of course being a part of 2 faculties, there are some courses you won't be able to take that other cs/afm majors do in upper years, but you really do get the best of both worlds. personally i think cfm is a great program, combines finance/accounting and cs together. in a way you know you're going to be in demand because you know both fields. and after cfm, if you're thinking finance/accounting is more the kind of thing for you, then specialize there and vise versa with cs. cfm lets you get a taste of both fields before choosing you're favourite. might be a little disoriented in terms of organization because it's pulling you in two different directions, but that's what's going to make you stand out.

CFM has already given out some acceptances, I think they will give a round soon - good luck!

Hey guys, did anyone already get the package in the mail? I got accepted on Quest and OUAC two weeks ago, but never got a physical offer(mind you, the fact that I've gotten meant for four different houses(none of them mine) this week might be a factor).

+1 YES!

I'm a little sad though. not sure where i put the package, but i can't seem to find it anywhere. it's in my house ...somewhere. i hope it just shows up. (yes i know. i probably shouldn't have lost my acceptance package ><)
