Away from RFD idiots
i doubt there are big differences between the three, but i like seneca's as it has in class component and has electives that look interesting.

But, if these courses are geared toward to preparing you to get certificates, i'd rather just self-study and get certificates myself. there are alot of sample tests online to practise too.

I would say start off in a lower position if you don't have any experience and get a cert rather than going to school...unless you are sure you can get co-op through your school
