Does it matter how you rank them (on OUAC)?
I ranked Mac health sci 3rd, after U of T(SG) life sci, and Mac nursing.
and then York nursing (4th), U of T (M) life sci (5th), Mac life sci (6th), and Windsor nursing (7th).

I chose Western biomed first and McMaster HS second because I live in London.

I don't think it really matters for undergrad, although, it does matter for sure with some grad schools

1. Western : Health Sciences
2. Queen's : Science
3. McMaster: Life Sciences
4. UofT St. George : Life Sciences

Why don't you apply to life sciences? You can still get into the school of medicine with this program and it is less competitive. And hey, you might find something else rather than medicine if you take this program, since it's very general and broad.

The more alluring aspect to Health Sci at MAC is the intimate class sizes and the ability to gear your learning into areas that interest you.

If this is your situation I strongly suggest looking into SCHOLARS ELECTIVES at UWO for HEALTH SCIENCE or BIOMED.... its an amazing program and even more competitive than Mac Health Sci. I know there are a bunch of really talented students that apply to Mac and don't get in and fail to have a comparatively competitive back up!

Do your research and youll see what I am talking about. Let me know if you have any questions

I've always liked the city of Montreal so I would go with Life Sciences at McGill.
