    I'm actually declining UofT's offer and going with Waterloo. I think both programs are great, I just got a better overall feel from Waterloo. My main reasons are:

    1. Smaller class size
    2. The paid co-op terms are very appealing and cut down the cost of tuition quite a bit
    3. As much as I'd love to live downtown Toronto, I know the rent will be pricey. After completing my undergrad I'm looking to cut down costs however I can
    4. I really liked the building/learning environment
    5. I can work for the next 6 months before starting. It'll be nice to have a break before starting 4 more years of school lol

    Like I said, both programs are great and it's a difficult decision, I just think I'm better suited to Waterloo's program. For those of you choosing UofT over Waterloo I'm sure you feel the same way in terms of it just being a better 'fit'. For everyone who received offers from both schools I'd be interested in hearing how you made your decision too. Best of luck :)

    Hi Everyone,
    I have luckily been accepted to both UofT and UW and I will be choosing UW. For anyone struggling to decide between the two I have made a comparison between both schools based on experience and approximate costs and am attaching this for you guys as well!
    Hope this helps! :)

    Hey all! Congrats 2T2s.
    I just had a question for the upper years here - do all those who are accepted receive some money from UofT for their admissions?

    I believe Scotiabank has the best line of credits specific for professional school students. They make custom programs based on your school and program of study
