Co-Op vs. Prestige
Schools like Waterloo and Laurier have co-op programmes, while Rotman, Queens Ivey Schulich have prestige. In which colleges do I have a higher chance of getting recruited after my course is over? I've heard in some cases prestige is so much greater than whether or not you've been in co-op or not.

Ryerson or UTM if I want to transfer to another school for 2nd yr
I'm honestly not looking for any criticism or life advice at this point. I just want to hear a few opinions at which school would be better. Let's assume my GPA would be lower in UTM.

UW/WLU BBA/BMath Graduate - AMA
I've seen a lot of misinformation flying around this forum about a lot of programs, so hopefully I can answer some of those questions with more details. 

About me:
- Graduated from the BBA/BMath Double Degree program
- My home school was UW
- Involved with a lot of clubs and activities on both campuses
- TA'd for courses at both UW and Laurier
- Co-op terms in teaching, operations, systems work, and finance
- After graduating I worked in communications at UW and worked closely with people from the admissions team (no, I cannot tell you how likely you are to get an offer)
- Currently in a graduate program in Operations Research 

Feel free to ask any questions you have about the DD program, Math/CS at UW, or Business at Laurier. If I don't know the answer, I will try to direct you to the appropriate people.

UofT Offer of Admission
Hello everyone.
Today I just got admitted into 2/3 programs I applied to at UofT. 
I got accepted to UTM Commerce and I have a question in regards to UTSC co-op Management (BBA).
It says I got accepted into UTSC, but says "Social Sciences and Humanities" and my offer letter also states that.
I did not apply for Social Sciences and Humanities, however, is that just a counter offer since I did not meet the requirements for the co-op management program? And does this still mean I have a shot at getting admitted into the co-op management program later on? 

Thanks, everyone in advance!

Is Ryerson accounting and finance worth it if I stay in the area?
Im currently hoping to pursue a career in either finance or accounting. I currently have an estimated 91.2 top 6 average. I have been accepted to Brock accounting and Laurier BBA. I understand that both of these are great programs, however I can only really afford to stay within the Greater Toronto area. I have also been accepted to Ryerson accounting and finance, but I hear many mixed opinions of the program. I also understand the importance of co-op and I know that it is much more difficult to secure co-op at TRSM. Is it worth going to Ryerson in my case?
Schulich BBA vs Laurier BBA and Financial Math DD
I just got accepted into both programs and understand that Schulich is more reputable than Laurier's BBA program, but is that true for the DD?

Please the list the pros and cons of each program and your experiences in the program. Thank you for your help!

Laurier economics
So I applied to the Laurier economics degree specifically economics and accounting I might switch it to finacial management. So like if I get accepted I dunno if I should take it, I went to their open house and asked about the program and enjoyed the school (lazardis) saw the benefits, jobs and the employment rate which was pretty good. However I'm still on the fence because it's an econ degree which feels fishy and my parents disapprove. I mean I could just power through it and aim for a competitive average and switch to BBA But I dunno if i wanna go through all that I might just take my guelph acceptance but that school isn't really known for its commerce (farm school)...sigh any thoughts on the econ program?

getting conditional offers
Is it possible to get condition offers if in English you are getting a 70% but the university page shows a minimum requirement of 75% and your grade12 average currently in low 80's but the program requires your average to be in mid 80's.

Schulich or Laurier for BBA?
Hi everyone, I’m a grade 12 student interested in studying business next year. I’ve gotten early acceptance into four of the programs I’ve applied to, but I’m waiting for Schulich BBA. Right now, my top two choices are Laurier BBA, which I was admitted to late February, and Schulich BBA but I’m torn between the two. In particular, I have a few questions and I was wondering if anyone had advice/answers: 1) How is the student life at both schools? 2) Which program would better prepare me for accounting/marketing? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks so much!

Laurier BBA 80 average
somebody told me they got in with an 80 average and I straight up told them I didn't believe them. They said they got into Waterloo campus because I thought maybe they applied to BTM at brantford campus but no they said Waterloo. And when I asked what program she applied to they said "whatever the commerce is" and I was like.... it's a BBA not BComm lol. Am I crazy for not believing them because I'm pretty sure they didn't get in. I brought it up with them again too and they think I'M being the crazy one for not believing.

First Year Accounting and Financial Management Student (Waterloo AFM)
Hi everyone, I am a first year AFM student at Waterloo and last year I was in your position. I was trying to figure out which university programs to apply to and I heavily relied on this website to make my final decisions from first years in the respected programs. If any prospective students in high school are looking to pursue the AFM program at Waterloo I would love to answer any questions, and talk about my experiences so far! I was admitted with a 91% average with excellent EC's.
