Since when is UWO considered a bad school? We are a party school but also one of the best schools in Canada, we are generally in the top 3 admissions averages in all of Canada (alongside McGill and Queens this year), and we have more graduates in the "Top 40 under 40" than any other Canadian university.

Also, in Canada it really doesn't matter where you go for your undergraduate degree, you are pretty much going to get the same education regardless of whether you go to Queens, Western, Guelph, etc.

UWO is actually one of the best schools, known for its Richard Ivey School of Business - probably the best (at least in the top 3) business school in canada.

I would say Western.
Mac is know for its health sciences, not so much for its life sciences.

You can't go wrong with Western, best student experience in Canada, ranked #1 in Times Magazine, One of the best party schools in North America (#4 by playboy Magazine) with exceptional academics all around.

Also nicest (IMO) Campus in Canada

Bet Mac can't beat that.

I'd say it's probably just slightly easier to get a higher GPA at Mac Lifesci than it is at UWO Biomed, assuming you have high enough marks after first year to get into the biomed program second year at all. Western had an admissions cutoff of 87% for its science program this year - that's definitely higher than Mac Lifesci's. But when it comes down to it, you can apply to med school from any university & any program that you want to, provided you have the right prerequisite courses.

They're probably taking into account McMasters HEALTH science program as well, which is very good.

And once again, in Canada, where you go for your undergrad doesn't matter! An employer doesn't care whether you have an undergraduate degree from Western or McMaster... all the top universities in Canada pretty much provide the exact same education.

Yes, it is. UWO is one of Canada's top universities, no question. Why are you finding that so hard to believe?
