Brock, U of T or McMasters

A photo of sharikkhan sharikkhan
Hi i have applied for

Biochemistry Co-op - Brock
Health Science - Brock
Life Sciences (Co-op) - McMaster
Life Science - U of T

I want to get into medical school and my average is about 86%. I heard that Canadian medical school do not care about the university you came from. If that true i want to go to biochemistry in Brock but then other people are saying that going into a recognized university is better. That is why i am confused. Should i go into a renowned university with hard studies or an easier university ?

Undergrad doesn't matter. Only your GPA does. Other than U of T, McGill and Queens I haven't heard too many bad stories of scoring a good GPA at other schools. At Mac all my friends in life sciences are getting marks within B+ to A's.

Go to the university that you like the best (taking everything into consideration - campus, location, social life, program, cost etc). You're spending the next 3-4 years at that school, so make sure you love it.

That's not necessarily true. I know of a lot of people in Health Science who are worried more about their HLTH SCI courses than all the life science courses (general chemistry, physics, math, etc.)

Lol aside from orgo, my lowest marks at Mac were all definitely health sci courses.
