Hey Guys. I'm a grade 11 student, and my average is around 90. What should i do to increase my chances of getting into the program? Some people say extra curricular are important others say they aren't. My school doesn't have many things other then sports, any advice on what i should join/do?

ECs aren't super important (relative to other programs like Queen's life sci) to getting into health sci. It's always nice to be well rounded though. There isn't really a surefire way to get into health sci aside from keeping your grades up and having a well thought out supplementary application.

ECs won't even help unless you mention them in your answers. (I only hinted at one and that was it). Just get that average to low-mid 90s and write a killer supp app and that's the best you can do.

Oh, and pray if you are religious.
