  4. I only have to pay back about half of what OSAP gave me. About 10k after 2 years. So it'll probably be around 20k by the end of my undergrad.

  10. Currently owe $3,000 and I'm in my 2B term. I expect to graduate debt-free. Thanks, co-op!

  11. $0. No co-op. Co-op is for losers who can't find work on their own.

    1. You should invest in something. There's no point have that amount of money just gathering dust and depreciating. Especially with the way things are going, bank interest is not going to be worthwhile.
