Western Biomed/Sci/Kin & Waterloo Kin

A photo of songs songs
I got accepted into Western Biomed, Science and Kinesiology programs.
As well, Waterloo offered me kinesiology with honors co-op.

The only thing stopping me from going to Western is the co-op in Waterloo. I'm iffy with my financial status and I think that co-op could benefit.

On the other hand, I've heard great things about Western, and if it were empirically regular programs, I would probably go there.

Program-wise, all offers interest to me.

I just wanted to know anybody else's opinions on any of these four programs. Absolutely anything helps, just want some extra info.

My friend's sister did co-op at Waterloo. She made real good money graduated with no student loan. Her goal was to go to med school but unfortunately due to her co op , she couldn't focus on her MCAT. Everybody is different . I guess it depends on what your plans are with your undergrad degree. She is now doing pretty well because of her co-op.

Did your friend's sister do Life sci or kine? Co-op sounds too good of an opportunity to give up. Is it possible/common for kine students to go to med school?

Congrats on getting in! yea i applied to both kine programs also still haven't gotten in :(. I heard waterloo co-op is sweet because it cuts your student debt by a lot. I guess they're both kinda of the same but waterloo offers co-op and western offers parties ahah.

All are good, Waterloo coop is great. Consider other factors, financial, your learning potential,etc. Going to med school, GPA >3.8 and MCAT >9 required, plus Volunteer,Research, Leadership, (In general, that means university average > 85 and grade 12 average > 95). I pick the coop.

My exercise science teacher went to waterloo kin. What he said was that waterloo seemed to put more emphasis on the science/math of the degree rather than other schools. He also chose because of the co-op...which he got some places as a physed teacher...he wanted to become a doctor but he didn't have the marks for it. But he said he was a rlly good student in high school.

I don't wanna scare anyone...but he said if he were to choose again he wouldn't go to waterloo.

all the programs you applied to are great...look at first year courses...and residence life and other factors.
