Hi, I am in my last year of high school and am looking at different (Canadian) physics programs. The programs that I am looking at all have an option to do multiple co-op placements and I am not sure as to whether it is worth it to graduate a year later but with work experience. At this point I think that grad school is a likely path after my undergrad, but I am not sure yet -- a lot can change in 4 years. I am hoping that if I do co-op I can get some research placements because I have read that undergraduate research helps with grad school admissions, but at the same time I'm not sure if it's wishful thinking to hope that as a lowly undergrad I will be able to get research placements. Also, if it matters, the two universities that I have in mind are the University of Waterloo and the University of Guelph. So my question is: is it worth it to do co-op as a physics major?
