McMaster Life Sciences

A photo of Bobby55 Bobby55
Hi guys,

I was recently on McMaster's website, and I read that for life sciences, if you have completed 3 or more grade 12 courses, you are eligible for early acceptance for this program. I have completed 3 grade 12 courses, and have a combined average of 88% for those 3 courses (English, Advanced Functions, and Biology). Do you think that I will receive early acceptance for the McMaster Life Sciences program?

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.... go for it, but generally early admission from my knowledge is people who have averages above the normal admission average by like 2-4 percent, but try anyway, if you get it now your set, you never know...

Maybe but it depends on other applicants as well. If they have higher marks it may bump you down but you may still get in

It's pretty random, and in the long run it really doesn't matter if you get early acceptance. My average is about 92% and I received early acceptance to mac life sci today.
