Visa rejected for University of Waterloo for Computer Science.

A few documents were missing because of which my study permit got rejected. Should defer it to the winter term and reapply for the permit? My second option is FAST National University in Pakistan.

    Yeah, defer enrollment and reapply for the permit; while I'm sure FAST is a good local school in Pakistan, I'm sure Waterloo is leagues ahead in CS.

    U Waterloo is a good uni for computer science. And I understand that having a North American bachelors degree can be prestigious in Pakistan. If going to U Waterloo will bring you more career opportunities than going to FAST would, then yes, defer your admission to Waterloo for a term, and get your visa done.

    At the same time, can you also defer your admission to FAST? If you can, it can act as a backup should Waterloo not work out for you.

    Have you confirmed that you can start in January? That isn't possible at all universities.
