When is the Mcmaster Life science document deadline?? which faculty does biochemsitry fall under?

I'm so confused! Mmcmaster university does not have clear guidelines or anything towards applicants. I applied for life science at mcmaster as a transfer student from US. i thought biochemistry (above level I) fell under arts & science, where the deadline is february 1st. but then when i rechecked it said that it fell under health science, where the deadline was april 1st. so i was a little bit less tensed up.

but now when i checked the Mcmaster website there wasn't any biochemistry program in the fhs website. Now im so damn tensed up. i have to send my english tests for macmaster, but i still haven't done it yet even!!!

can someone please tell me when the biochemistry(above level I) document deadline is???

Biochem is a major that you select at the end of 1st year of life sci, which belongs to the Faculty of Science. It doesn't fall under Faculty of Health Sciences.

yeah but they don't have a science thing listed here. only arts and science.
http://future.mcmaster.ca/admission/dates-deadlines/

and in the faculty listing they've got three faculties
http://registrar.mcmaster.ca/CALENDAR/current/pg3.html
Science Faculty
Arts and science
Health science

and biochemistry comes under Science. so it's not Arts & science.

You're looking at the wrong part of the table. There is NO mandatory supp app for any life sci program (including biochem), which is why it's not listed there. The top part of the table only lists the deadlines for supplementary application submission. For supporting documentation (which is what you're submitting), you have until April 1 since you're an international student.

The Faculty of Arts & Science, Faculty of Health Science, and Faculty of Science are THREE completely separate faculties. Biochem is a major in life sci, which falls under Science. I never said it belongs to Arts & Science, if you re-read my first post. If you look in the undergraduate calendar (http://registrar.mcmaster.ca/CALENDAR/current/pg1466.html), you'll see that the Department of Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences belongs to the Faculty of Science.
