So it’s that time of the year again: high school students deciding on which offer to accept. Two years ago, I was in their shoes at that time. Needless to say, I chose the University of Waterloo for Computer Engineering. Over time, the decision to come to this university was proven to be a wise choice. You’ve probably heard a lot about Waterloo’s co-op reputation and how you can earn up to two years of real work experience and you get paid real salaries and stuff. But one thing they don’t really talk much about is the implications that it has on students. So this post will try to address that, and hopefully you will find this helpful!
