HELP!! Western health science and kinesiology

A photo of ConcernedConnor ConcernedConnor
I'm becoming more worried with what I read about expected cut off averages and other students averages competing for these programs. I know that the average for Kin is usually slightly higher than the health sci program but I was wondering if I should even have hope.

Currents top six:
Functions: 71
Exercise science: 80
Data management: 92
Biology: 88
Religion: 88
English: 85

averge: 84

Please let me know what you think!!

The health science cutoff was approximately 83% last year so you have a good chance at that. As for Kinesiology, it'll really depend on how many people apply this year. Last year, the cutoff was 85%, which is the highest it's ever been. If there are less applicants this year, you'll still have a chance.

If you feel your grades are not enough, I've heard about a supplemental you could fill out stating your ECs. I'm not sure what that is so look that up if you wish to write it. It could increase your chances of getting in.

also try and get your functions to an 80 because in this forum the dude was saying that if you have under 80 you won't be considered http://www.studentawards.com/Forum.aspx?g=posts&t=14108

are you sure that dude is right? i swear no one said anything about having to keep all your courses above 80 or you won't be considered.
and plus, it's kind of unreasonable since the programs that need low 90s to get in said they only need at least a 70% in a specific course...not 80.

Ive been searching for that under 80 rule and I havent been able to find it. I would understand if they were speaking about an overall average falling under 80. Does anyone know roughly how many students apply to each program?
