Own up. your anon anyways. I got rejected and I didn't even get an alternate offer to LifeSci. My average was 88.0 and my supp sucked. For the four lettered word i simply typed it screw Some guy I know got rejected even with 3 100's and 2 high 90's. They didnt even have the decency to send me a rejection letter.
As well, EngSci at UofT didnt accept me but i got an alternate offer to ChemEng.

Everyone at my school who applied didn't get in (~4, not sure of the exact number). According to them, it's because the supp app is far more important than marks(??). Anyway, are you going to U of T engineering next year?

Teehee I got rejected. But the thing is, I never wanted to go in the first place. What a waste of 45 minutes of my life writing the supplementary.

I have a 94 average but my supp sucked. I majorly screwed up the formatting somehow when typing it, but I don't think they would've been interested in why the word "dead" should be expunged anyway. And for the type of research that shouldn't be funded I said the search for extraterrestrial life, which probably made them think I was off my rockers.

I didn't get an alternate offer either, but I did get a rejection letter lol.

I got rejected for that program last year, despite the fact that I had a 97 average, with some extracurriculars, and I think I did a good job on the supplementary. Every other place I applied to gave me scholarship offers. I wouldn't worry about not getting into it, its pretty tough to get accepted. I think they are looking for people with really high marks and a ton of extracurriculars.

Kill your supp app (Creativity and originality is key), get above 90. You'll get in. Of course, easier said than done

Six people from my school (myself included) got into health sci. Three are rejecting their offers (myself included).

Don't worry, it's over rated :cat:

One of my best friends got into the program with an average of about 92.
Her supplementary was really creative (she asked me to edit it for her). When asked to describe herself, she did so using the letters in her name to describe an aspect of herself. She had her heart set on the program, and I was so happy she managed to get in.

97 average? so many screwing trolls on this site.. or maybe your school is ridiculously inflated, because the highest average of the graduating class last year was 95.8% and our school is the top in york region -_-



It's actually quite possible if the person is an IBer. I graduated hs with a 99% average, and 6 of my classmates had 97%+. We were in IB at a York region school.

I wish! I got 42, the others got 36-40 (some of them used non-IB courses in their top 6). A girl in the class 2 years ahead of me graduated with 45 points and 100% Ontario average at my school though (she also went to Mac health sci and is now at U of T med).

The highest average of a graduating class at my school was approx 96-97 and no one got into Mac Health Sci. Not exactly an inflated school either, its not the best in york region but its somewhere in the top 20 in Ontario, last time I checked.

No my high school didn't offer IB, it was located in a small town in eastern ontario so there wasn't a large variety of courses offered. I was the top in my graduating class of ~100 people, the next was around a 95 I believe. Perhaps there was some degree of grade inflation, I can't really say. However, I was able to get on the Dean's Honour list at McGill after first year and I qualified for a scholarship for my second year, so if there was inflation it couldn't have been too extreme. I don't really remember what my supplemental for health sci was like, since it was about a year and a half ago I wrote it, but I don't think it was too bad.
