OMG: There seems to be a lot of co-op hate on here, and I'm not sure why. I just got 7 tech offers from companies in the valley and NYC, all paying $80-100k (annualized), and I'm not even as comp/soft eng or CS students (stats FTW). There is not a snowball's chance in hell that happens if I resort to cold-emailing random companies on my own.
TL;DR Waterloo co-op is awesome

  1. No... Waterloo co-op is awesome if you're in CS/ECE or AFM.

  5. AFM isn't that great. Average is probably 40,000 annualized.

  6. When the founder of BlackBerry can stroll through the mall without as much as a meh, it shows you how high the standards are in Waterloo. We run tings.
