There is so muchQuite BrightComputer Science
There is so much wrong with this institution I don't know where to begin:

1. There is no support offered for struggling students.
2. There is no sense of community with classmates. 3. "Impersonal" is probably the best word to describe this school. "Uninspiring" is another.

Question
Everyone is talking about great Laurier's Business program.AverageBusiness - Management and Administration
Everyone is talking about great Laurier's Business program. But actually, the business courses are not fair starts from the 1st year. The project worth 30-35% in the first year bu courses are marked by the TA, which means TA's preferences and hard/easy marker can decide your life instead of your effort. The courses grades are affected greatly by the TA's interest. Then, when you get into 2nd/3rd year, this kind of thing happens again. The business office assign business courses for you and not let you to switch the section. The prof of business 2nd year courses are always different, and the exam papers vary with the profs and usually the average grades of different sections varies a lot . Therefore, your fate is decided by the office again.

Additionally, when Laurier choose coop students, they don't care so much about your GPA. They set a low GPA requirement (about 8.3/12), and people who gets a GPA higher than that must show their experiences or activities to stand out (not their grades and knowledge).Overall, I think Laurier is not as good as I heard several years ago. I will recommend not choosing Laurier.

Question
I have hated my time here because ofQuite BrightPhilosophy
I have hated my time here because of the lack of respect laurier has for students. they are not at all concerned with education and view you as an invoice. I would never recommend this business to anyone (you can barely call it a school). Also, the staff are unhelpful and degrading while the students are persnickety elitists.
