UWO Scholars Elective Program

A photo of Ozinator Ozinator
Im applying for westerns scholars elective program and I had a few questions:

1) how competitive is the program to get in? It says 90% min, the higher the average the better chance of getting in I presume?

2) what is the application like? Basic questions ? (ie ec's volunteering?)

3) do each programs had a certain number of SE students accepted? I'm applying for BioMed.


Thanks.

I can't answer 2 because Scholar's Elective isn't offered for BMOS, but I can do my best with the other two questions. From what I know, getting into SE is pretty difficult and your marks don't necessarily reflect your ability to get in. I assume they're looking for well-rounded individuals who are highly involved. I believe there's a lot of writing and essay questions in the application.

And yes, I'm pretty sure there's a cap for each program.

Also, I'd just like to add that SE isn't too big of a deal. I would say it's the most beneficial for bio med students since you can get a leg up by getting a better chance at lab work than your peers (which is pretty huge if you want to become a doctor). Mostly, being in SE just gives you permission to feel elitist.
