Western vs. Queen's Engineering

A photo of ACEEGAN ACEEGAN
I've been accepted to Western, Queen's, Guelph, McMaster and Carleton for engineering all general except for Carleton which is aerospace. However I'm trying to choose between Queen's and Western. I got a $1000 scholarship to Western but only if my final average is 87%+. For Queen's I got a $5000 bursary and I only need to maintain a 75% average. Which is a better school for engineering?

They're pretty much equal for engineering but I'd go with Queens.

for what reasons? I know Queen's has the highest graduation rate and you get to pick your major no matter what

I would choose Queen's. More money at entrance, better environment for study, better reputation (according to my math teacher)

No, i'm going to Waterloo to study math; however, I thought about engineering before, and my old plan was to apply to Queen's as well as U of T and Waterloo (but not any other universities)

I'd pick Queens purely based on the fact you're getting more money. But if you want to go to Western go ahead - you're going to get a solid education regardless. I go to Western and I think it's great.
