Mcmaster no waiting list... no final mark count :( what should i do?!

ok so my midterm mark was below the admission cutoff.I couldn't do really well due to my family problems. but i know that i can do so much better and raise my mark really high for final. so i called Mcmaster today and this guy told me that they will start sending out the offer in next week. they will not sending any offers after June and there is no waitlist only if the space is available which is almost impossible. so they pretty much accept or reject you based on your midterm mark.
I haven't got any offers yet from them and if they don't look at my final mark to whether accept me or not, then i don't see the point of working hard for my finals. Mac is my first choice. i wanted to go there for all my life and now it seems so impossible.

I believe you can send in Supplementry profile form (My understanding is you have to ask them for the form as it is not posted on their site like Western does) if your mark is below the cut-off. Call them again and ask to speak to an admission officer directly. Mac's Life Science is pretty competitive so chances of getting a late admission is impossible, but having said don't give up yet!!
