UofT life sci

A photo of yyxh yyxh
Im thinking of going to life sci at u of t & hopefully to grad school later on. However there's so much critism & negativity online about uoft giving out low marks and what not.

Is there statistics/info on the percent of people who graduate from life sci vs those who switch/drop out?

I'm not sure if they have that statistic, but I think the best place to look would be:

As someone in UTSG life sci (2nd year now), I can tell you a little bit of information about my class. At the very beginning, there were a little more than 1700 of us enrolled in life sci. That number has slipped to around 1200 for second year. This means a dropout or switch rate of about 29-30% after first year. When it`s all said and done, I`d say maybe 900-1000 of us will graduate with a life science degree after 4 years (around 55% of the original class).

This doesn`t mean that you have a 55% chance of obtaining a degree if you go to U of T. It`ll depend on a lot of things. A strong high school background is helpful in first year, but hard work is essential throughout all 4 years. It`s really quire simple, if you work hard and have above average intelligence you will succeed. Doing well at U of T life science isn`t so much about being smart and talented as it is about being disciplined and motivated.
