Queen's Science BISC (Bader International Study Centre)
Hi there, 
So I just recently applied to the Queen's BISC program for Science, where they send you to England for first year but I was wondering if someone could give me a little bit more information on things like, how the financials work, is it competitive to get into even though the site says 80+ and also can I get OSAP for this program?
Thank you in advance!

uOttawa 1st year Biomedical Mechanical Eng Student

I'm a first year Biomedical Mechanical Engineering student studying at the University of Ottawa. Feel free to ask me about anything ( residence, admissions, campus life, academic resources, admissions to other Universities, why u of O, etc.) and I'll answer to the best of my abilities. Fall last year was really stressful for me when applying for uni, so I hope this thread will help you guys out. 

A little about me : 

- I live in Marchand
- I'm from Western Canada (Saskatchewan)
- I'm bilingual (taking my classes in french)
- I've joined a few clubs (the nerdy ones)

Ask anything that comes to mind! 

Waterloo Conditional Admission to Pharmacy 2018

It's probably nearing university application time now, so I wanted to create a thread to answer some questions any CAP applicants may have.

 For more information on CAP, visit this site:
For more information regarding deadlines, visit this site:

If anyone is skeptical about applying, please don't hesitate! Really! I was hesitant to apply because I thought it was a long shot, but I made it and I'm so glad I did! 

Generally if you have a question, post it here, and if I can answer it, I'll try to. My response rate may be within 1-3 days, depending on my schedule. If there are any other CAP students roaming around on this site who can answer questions, feel free to answer!

Process to change program after first year ?
If you decide that you'd like to change your program (polisci) or take up a second major in biomedical science after first year - what would the process be like? I'm ensuring that I have all the high school prerequisites in line for biomedical science if I do decide to change my mind but I'm wondering if anything more is needed? Since the biomedical science program is pretty rigorous (to my knowledge) would the change in program prolong the time it takes to earn your degree?

While I am very interested in the political science program, I am also interested in what the biomedical program has to offer - just hoping for some idea on what would happen if I did decide to change my program of study.

Biomedical studies UNBC or Engineering UBC?
I've been accepted at UNBC and am waiting to hear back from UBC but I currently have a 92% average so I'm pretty hopeful. I am unsure of which program I want to go into, all I know is my goal is medical school. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience in either biomedical studies at UNBC or engineering at UBC? Or you've gone to either of those schools and could give me some positives and negatives of each. Thanks!

Guelph biomedical sciences cutoff 2018?
Does anyone know the CUTOFF for biomedical sciences at Guelph this year? Also, aside from the cutoff, what average is needed to be competitive in the application process?
Early Acceptance and AP Exams
So my grade 11 average is 82.2%. However, this is a mediocre average, since I want to apply for programs in the science and engineering fields. I was completely neglectful of my important courses and put no effort into them (AP Functions, AP Chem, AP Bio, and Academic Physics), resulting in mid 70s in all of these subjects. In my defense, I struggled with my Physics teacher (she was quite inexperienced and couldn't teach it), and Physics is not my forte, but the AP courses were not excusable. I also did Co-op and they gave me an option of putting it under Bio; ended with an 87. So my questions:  

1. Since my co-op mark is displayed as Grade 11 Bio, will that replace my AP Bio mark for early acceptance purposes?  

2. I was wondering if universities with cutoffs of 70s-80s (e.g. Brock, Ryerson, UOIT, Trent) would do early acceptance with my G11 average?  

3. I decided only keep AP Chem and AP Bio this year (I'm actually doing alright in AP Chem due to dedication, have AP Bio next semester). How do universities recognize AP Exam scores? Will they give you extra recognition?  

4. How hard is AP Bio? What are some tips on how I can manage it? I'm performing well in AP Chem because I did textbook questions and did well on labs, not sure if that's the same for Bio.  

5. If you get denied/ from a program (lets say from first round), can you get reconsideration in the second round?

Guelph Bio-Medical Science
I am a now second-year Bio-Med student at Guelph, so if any incoming first years or other high school students have any questions at all about the program or Guelph in general, feel free to ask me!!

Western Health Science?
I was wondering if anyone could share information about the western health science program. Does the program have some science aspects as well as some public health or is the program strictly social sciences. I've also heard that the program offers a lot of electives so im wondering if thats true. I would also like some opinions and thoughts on the program, thankyou :)

Admission Averages and Conditional Offers
Hi everyone, 
I'm looking into some bigger academic scholarships at schools (Chancellor's, Governor's, President's, etc) and when they refer to admission average, is this in reference to the average they used when they give you an offer (i.e. for me, Grade 11 marks) or will this be based on your final grade 12 marks?

Also, if you were given an entrance scholarship in your offer, is this guaranteed as long as you keep the minimum average or do you have to maintain the same average? More specifically for Guelph, Waterloo and U of T.

Is Human Biology at UTSC easy or hard?
I am planning to do either a specialist in Human Bio or a double major in Human Bio and Health studies. And also how is Health Studies?

Health Sciences (BSc) with Management Option vs Health Sciences (BSc)
I can't decide which one I should apply for. What is the difference? Do they require the same marks and courses for admission? Does one have more available slots? Can anyone give me any information please?! Ps. my end goal is Medical school. (Wilfrid Laurier)

Biomedical and Electrical or Computer science at Carleton
I have been accepted to comp sci at Carleton, I also applied for biomedical and electrical engineering at Carleton. Carleton only offers acceptance to one of their programs. Since I got the acceptance for comp sci, they are saying that in order for me to be considered for Biomedical engineering I have to withdraw my acceptance for comp sci. Is it worth it? Which one is better?
McMaster Life Sci Cutoff?

so i know this has been asked so many times, but i can't seem to find an answer to it! i was wondering if anyone knew the life science cutoff average over the past few years?

also, i'm expected to have a 91-92% avg on my first semester report card, do you think this mark will get me into the program?

thank you!!
Best Undergrad for Dental School
Im interested in pursuing dentistry as a career but need to chose an undergrad to get there. I am currently in grade 12 doing the International Baccalaureate program with a 93.3 average. I applied to Biomedical sciences and Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa. I have been accepted in both programs already. I also applied to McGill's faculty of Kinesiology. I have been debating what program to go into in order to get into Dental School (at McGill or Université de Montréal). All in all, I need to choose between Biomedical Sciences and Kinesiology. What are your thoughts on Kinesiology as a Major? Would it be a good program to get into Dental School?

When does UTSC normally look at applications?
I'm scared if they got my OUAC application. I applied more than a week ago for Life Sciences. Has anyone got any offers of admission?

Admission Chances for Life Science plssss
My current top 6 average is hovering around an 87 (Termed, not semestered), and I'm applying for Life Sciences at Mac and Waterloo, General Science at Western, and Trent and York. I'm hoping to get into med school one day, but I'm fully open to other career options that might open up along the way. I had bronchitis for the first two months of school which really messed up my chem and bio marks because of the heavier material at the time, but I'm still confident I could get them up by maybe 4-5% by the time universities see it. 

Classical Civilizations: 97%
English: 90%
Advanced Functions: 87%
Chem: 78%
Bio: 80%
Calc: TBD (projected 85-90)
