QUESTION: Does anyone know the percentage of people who get 'outstanding' performance rating for their co-op terms? Which would you say is most important to interviewers: high grades, co-op performance ratings or previous work experience?

  1. I think I read here/Reddit...

    Previous (relevant) work experience > Co-op Rating > Grades

  2. I've heard (from the co-op department) that around 15% of people get 'outstanding' reviews.

  3. Everything's more important than grades, as long as you aren't failing all of your courses.

  4. imo:
    Direct recommendation and/or experience (from employers) > Grades > Co-op ratings
    As someone with mediocre grades (80%) but who has received 'outstanding' in all work terms (currently in 4a), when I get interviewed it seems that outlier grades are always a picking point. Post-graduation, personal references are much much more valuable than either, while I feel that grades plays an important role (unless you only have 'good' etc. evals) when having your CV looked over.
