Can someone tell me ehats the gpa needed to transfer to Mcmaster health science program? currently i've got a 3.41, but i hoping to increase it next semester. I am a student from USA, and is in my 2nd year. i have already applied, but after seeing so many posts saying they take a 92+ average is freaking me out. I applied for waterloo and UOT too. Are they hard to enter as macmaster? and how is the waterloo life science program???

You need a minimum A- 1st year cumulative average. A- is a 3.7, so you'll need to bump up your average. Competition is very high for 2nd year transfers because they only take about ~20 each year.

Waterloo and U of T will be much easier to get into.

They look at your overall GPA, and you also have to submit a supplementary application by April 15th.

Mac health sci is very different from traditional science programs at Waterloo and U of T, so it really depends on your learning style. If you enjoy group work, self-directed and problem based learning (ie. rather than lectures, being given a trigger/problem and conducting your own research to learn material), then Mac health sci is a good option. But if you prefer traditional lecture-based programs where you go to class and are taught the information, or you hate working in groups, then Waterloo/U of T would be a better choice.
