Their early acceptance round is just about over, with the largest volume of acceptances being in February. The cut off for both of these program is 85% (according to my package), and you are certainly not screwed. What is your average? If you have an 87+ you shouldn't have anything to worry about for Life Sci. For Kin, you might want to have a slightly higher average since it's more selective. Good luck!

Nope. You will need an 85 overall average including these courses:
4U English
4U Bio
One of 4U AF or 4U Calc/Vectors
One additional course from a set of science/math courses.

If you have a 90 average you should have been offered, but if not, just be patient. It will come soon. They will accept those with higher marks before they accept those with lower marks, so just give it time. Even if your friend got in with an 86, you should be in higher priority than a good portion of the rest of the applicants.
