Yeah the majority of people in Biological science enter with 80+ so you should be fine.

If you are looking into trying for med school you might want to look at the biomedical science program, in third year you have an option to work with human cadavers.
Usually the cut off for biomedical science is 85+ and once you are in the program you have to maintain a 75% average in University or you will be put into biological sciences.
Also, if you apply for Biomedical science and are not accepted you will automatically be considered for biological science.

good luck.
O and I chose Guelph for my undergrad because it has a good science program and it is located in a nice town.

Although the biomed program seems very good and interesting, I think that biosci would be a better fit for me. I heard that it provides more room for change and flexibility.
I have a question about the human cadaver opportunity. If I decide to do human kinetics after first year, do I still get the opportunity to work with cadavers in anatomy class, or is that only available for biomed students?
Thanks for your help. :)

I applied for Nutritional and Nutraceutical Sciences, but probably won't go because I don't know anyone at Guelph or who's going to Guelph. A mid-size university appealed to me though.

I too applied for Guelph but for Biomedical. I had the opportunity to visit Guelph University and I absolutely loved it. I got to speak to a professor in the Biomedical department and in actual fact the opportunity to work with human cadaver is ONLY guaranteed to the human kinetics student. The others apparently have to get permission to get into the human cadaver program. They only take x number of students to work with human cadavers.

I'm thinking of going into human kinetics, but I'm also thinking about going into vet so I'm still a little undecided at the moment.
As for the university itself, I haven't had the opportunity to visit but I feel like the atmosphere and size are definite winners.
It seems like an all around great school.
