Lol, you do realize that naturopathy is just as credible as astrology, right? Might as well just become a palm reader at this point.

Hey, everyone! I am in first year and attending McMaster University for their Bachelor of Health Sciences Honours program! I remember using yconic a lot while I was in high school, so I thought it would only be fair to help incoming freshmen out, just like how I was!

 Feel free to ask me any questions that pertain to McMaster’s Health Sciences program of course, as well as another other burning questions you may have!!

 Below, I am just going to list some general information that would probably be asked: 

Programs I applied to: (accepted to all)
 • McMaster Health Science
 • McMaster Life Science
 • McMaster Integrated Science
 • Western Medical Science
 • Guelph Biomedical Science
 • Queens Science

 Grade 12 marks: (classical, academic courses. Not AP or IB)
 • Biology: 99%
 • Advanced Functions: 99%
 • Calculus: 97%
 • Chemistry: 95%
 • English: 95%
 • World Issues Geography: 98%
 Average ~ 97%

 Extra Curriculars: (as an aside, I really encourage doing extra curriculars if you can handle it without them affecting your grades! looks great on scholarship applications!)
 • President of Student Council
 • President of Best Buddies program
 • President of Band Council
 • Captain of Badminton Team
 • Leader of Freshmen Orientation

 Scholarships: Many of the scholarships I won were for personal activism, student leadership, and academics. Totalling around $90,000. If you have any questions on filling out applications, please let me know!

 Please, ask me anything that I have not gone over! You guys got this, you’re going to succeed and get into whatever program your heart desires! I know it can be a struggle, but don’t be afraid to show this world what you’re made of! 

Good luck to you all, much love!

Hi there! 

Do you know the approximate average for Bachelor of Health Sciences at McMaster's? Would low 90's with leadership and community service potentially get me in, or should I just forget about it? Thanks!
