UW is a great school for certain things, especially computer science or computer engineering, as it sets the stage for a career in technology in Silicon Valley or elsewhere. For those interested in entrepreneurship UW's Velocity and Velocity Garage program is a great resource. UW is definitely a geeky sort of school--in my experience unapologetically so--so if someone is looking for less of a geek experience and more of a social life, it might not be the right place. That's how it was back in my day and, based on fairly recent visits to the campus, I don't think the basic geek vibe has changed much. For a particular kind of student, though, UW should be their first choice.

Do not go to the University of Waterloo, shitty people and shitty professors. Trust me when I say to not even apply for computer science or CFM.

School environment lacks social cohesion. Students are aloof and obsessed with academics. The culture of the school is very isolating. There is a lot of hype about the schools programs and coop, however, the school seldom boasts about its lack of integration and high incidences of gender based violence. Not a good step in a positive university experience.
