OMG: Waterloo has been nothing but a big disappointment.

  1. It's only a disappointment if you let it be one.

  2. Anyone who doesn't agree with this is down-right delusional and looking for an excuse to justify their absurdly high tuition rates.

    1. Learned a lot, coop for no debt, made great friends, just got a good job for after. I'm not sure what else people are looking for from their institution. Maybe it's not the school?

    2. absurdly high tuition rates compared to where? are you saying other universities in Ontario don't charge just as much lol

    3. Depends on the program 3b. In some programs, we pay less compared to other schools. In other programs, we pay significantly more.

      And then there's AFM, which is just an exercise in price gouging.

  3. Graduated last year. Had a great time, made lots of friends and came out of school debt free. With my experience I found a job less than a month in. I liked most of my profs and the staff that I dealt with. There were some administration protocols I didn't agree with and the convocation ceremony was a bit disappointing but overall I enjoyed my experience at UW.

    1. I feel the same way. I had a great time at Waterloo and my life is significantly better because I came here. I met some great what I hope are lifelong friends. Had many great experiences that I wouldn't have thought of doing!

      I have a job I love that pays fairly well and I'm debt free (haven't actually graduated yet but this is my last semester).

      I do find convocation ceremony disappointing. I feel like it's not very personal and more of a robotic last minute cash grab. Also it's our crappy gym and the gym always reminds me of years of stress.... :/

  5. University, no matter where, is what you make of it. You're probably a disappointment to the University.

  6. It's the biggest disappointment in life. Waterloo? More like waterloosers, m'right? Waterloo is crappy and its co-op programs really sucks. Don't go to waterloo, my fellow friends.

  7. Waterloo? The region? City? University?

    I honestly found them to be quite a disappointment from when I arrived here in 08. Over time I've gone from disappointed, to annoyed, to indifferent. I expected more.
