UW is a great school for certain things,Super BrilliantMath
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.

I'm currently enrolled in the Accounting and FinancialAverageAccounting
I'm currently enrolled in the Accounting and Financial Management program at uWaterloo and it was my first choice simply because if you want a CPA Waterloo has got the best academic reputation for the program and let's face it, my university IS better than yours (especially if you are from down the street aka Laurier)
