McMaster Life Science

A photo of gnfnr211 gnfnr211
Alright before I start writing anything, I'd just like to say I'm REALLY sorry for anyone that finds this post unnecessary or redundant. However, I'm a fifth (5th) year student and I've received my midterm marks today from my high school. I've been working very hard this year with the sole goal of getting into the Life Sciences program at McMaster. This program has a rather high average (high 80's) to get into, but I'm just over the minimum average. It would be greatly appreciated if I could get some feedback on if I will get an offer from Mac for this program based off these marks:

Biology (SBI4U) (final mark): 90%
Chemistry (SCH4U) (midterm mark): 96%
Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U) (midterm mark): 88%
English (ENG4U) (final mark): 87%
International Business (BBB4M) (final mark): 88%
World History:The West & the World (CHY4U) (final mark): 92%

These marks give an overall average of 90.16667% and all classes calculated are acceptable for this program.

Thank you for any feedback!

I had also applied to this program as a backup, and 2 weeks ago I confirmed with a Mac counselor that the acceptance average was an 89%. So you have made the cut! Expect a email in the next few days. :)

wow all you have to maintain is an 85% average?? That's good news! :compress:
Well I'm still waiting on my offer, but my midterm marks are officially in the OUAC as of April 25, so now it's just last little bit of the waiting game!
