Odds are you won't make it (if we're talking about Mac Health Sci). But feel free to prove me wrong when May comes. So I advise you to not put all your eggs in one basket, or you'll come out very disappointed in the end.

Get ready to be disowned/humiliated/belittled (a combination of any of the above) by your parents. Also, advise your parents that you'll be going to life science programs (that pale in comparison to health science /sarcasm).

But seriously, it's not about the program, it's about you, the individual. It's you who's going to determine if you're going to be successful or not - not your program or your parents. And imo, Health Sci @ Mac has to be one of the most overhyped programs ever.

Tell them health sci is not the end all and be all of "pre-med" programs. Plenty of people make it to med school from other programs. Health sci is not a prereq for medicine. People who graduate with a BA in history make it into med school.

Try not to worry too much about it, the stress might actually cause your marks to drop. There are other very good science programs out there. I almost didn't accept their offer but changed my mind at the last minute.

If you can't write an exceptional supplementary application, it means zilch.
And lemme guess. You're Asian, and your parents probably brainwashed you into thinking MEDICINE OR NOTHING!!111!! They also probably asked you if you were a doctor when you were 12, and when you responded with a stiff 'No', they yelled at you to not talk to them until you became one. Marks seem inflated - private school? Or IB? Or do you go to an inner-city school.

So tell me, amirite?

+100 internetz to you.

And yes, I know a few people from Rick Hansen. Assuming you're not trolling, that's an exceptional average. Now, go spend the next month writing an exceptional application. And I knew you had to be Asian, one way or another. Lol.

Telling your parents your priorities and what you want to accomplish may help them understand your decision makin process...and result in les yelling. :)

only go if YOU want to. yeah your parents want what's best for you, but if you enter a program that you're not interested in, chances of flunking out fast will definitely increase. why not pick something YOU like, tell your parents your goal and plan and what you wish to accomplish. if they still aren't happy, then move out. don't waste your time doing something you hate in life.

If you have a 99.8 I would like to think that you would be a good writer. So, you should get in. If not, Health Sci is overrated anyways. Tell your parents to chill out about Health Sci.

Health Sci is composed of a select group of students. Obviously these students are going to have successful careers, whether that be in medicine, dentistry, law, etc. Correlation does imply causation in this case.

At first I entered Health Sciences because of my parents. However, if I hadn't I would have never realized how much I find the program interesting. My advice to you is to do what makes you happy because you pave your own future.

well i think you should just do what makes you happy .but im telling you being a doctor or whatever in the medical field is a very prestigious profession. you will be capable of saving lives and that truly is a gift and i think you should start realizing what you want and what you want ot pursue in life. sure, doing all those years of schooling for medicine is stressfull ... but its worth it at the end. you get to give people another chance in life, what other profession does that?. so you should either start having passion to go into healthsci or just change your career.
