Waterloo or Queens for math?

A photo of blackjack blackjack
Hello, I have been accepted to both Waterloo's Math/CA and Queen's Science (planning to specialize in mathematics) and it would be great if I could have some other people's input on what would be best for me. I am leaning towards waterloo right now because my parents want me to go there but I really like Queens as well.

My parents want me to go to Math/CA because its a great program and it would be very easy to find a good job afterwards. The thing is that I have no idea what accounting even is and I don't know if I would be interested in it. My plan was that if I go into math/ca and i don't like it, I can switch out of it into another math program at waterloo that might be more interesting for me.

Queens
36K scholarship
very nice campus
only 2 hour drive from where I live
small 'math department' - don't really know what I can do after I graduate

Waterloo
12K scholarship - basically nothing since the math/ca program is 16K tuition/year
crappy campus
7 hour drive
great program
has a whole math department - more opportunities for me if I don't exactly know what I'm going to do

The only thing I know right now is that I'm pretty interested in math. I am good but definitely not good enough to do pure math and I don't really want to do research anyways. If anyone had any opinions, it would be greatly appreciated :)

Thank you!

Yeah there are a lot of options at waterloo for math. Go to waterloo unless you really cant see yourself going there. Plus if money is an issue remember the coop will help.
