Bachelor of Bio-Resource Management Degree (B.B.R.M.) - Equine Management Major (EQM)

     Here's the situation, I finished my grade 11 year this past June, and I will be starting grade 12 come September. My goal is to attend University of Guelph once I graduate. I am wishing to become an Equine Rehabilitation Specialist.

       I have a few questions regarding this. Since its a "Specialist" job, will I need more education to get into this career once I get my undergrad? Secondly, ( I feel a bit stupid for asking, but I have been confused as people that  I have asked, gave me all different answers), but anyways, when I apply for this program, would I be applying for Bio- Resource Management or Equine Management? Lastly, I am honestly terrified of not getting into this program because it is truly what I want to do with my life. My marks are consistent with the high 80s to mid 90s. I am a organized and responsible student. My education is important to me so I pay attention, study hard and do everything I can to keep up my high marks. So my question is, how hard will it be to be accepted into this program? How often do universities reject applicants? Why do they reject?

Any help to any of my questions is greatly appreciated!
Thanks for all your help! (:

Hey! I'm looking into the same program as you, and was confused at first too. From what I understand you apply for the bachelor of bio-resource mangement, and then you select your major in equine management. The other major option for this bachelor is enviromental management. I'm in the same boat as you, worrying if I'll get in. I'm not sure how competitive the program is, but the estimate cut off range is 75-79%, so with 80/90s average you should be okay:)

You'll be fine with that average. I was in the program (just graduated!) and I know people who got in with like 75% averages. So you'll be good! Just keep up your studies, get involved in extra curriculars (because every student is capable of getting good marks.. you have to also prove that you can have any sort of life outside of homework too! Like student councils, sports, volunteer work, part time jobs, etc)
