I posted this information from my original account but since it's been banned, nobody can view the threads except for me (when I log into the banned account).
This topic has been coming up recently in various threads so I figured I'd post the information again.
By "Last Year's Cutoff", I mean the cut-off for the people who applied during the 2009-2010 school year. The cutoffs change from year to year but generally stay in the same range (I presume) and the class sizes should remain fairly stable.
Biology Level II Cut-offs
I dunno if this will help anyone or if it is even new information but I just got back from the Biology Level II Info Night and I got some info about some of the programs that I thought might be helpful.
Class Size: 80-90
Last Year's Cutoff: 7.8
Molecular Biology and Genetics
Class Size: 30-40
Last Year's Cutoff: 8.4
Honours Biology (Physiology Specialization)
Class Size: Max 35
Last Year's Cutoff: 8.6
**3rd Year Program: Honours Biology and Pharmacology Co-op
Class Size: ~18-20
Last Year's Cutoff: 8.5
*For all programs, I was told the cutoffs would be very similar this year.
**For this program this is also an interview that is just as important as your CA. Also, as long as you meet the course requirements, you can apply from any Level II program and will not be at any disadvantage or advantage in terms of learning the material.
Biochemistry Level II Cutoffs
Just some info from the Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences "Ticket To Your Future" Event:
Honours Biochemistry (No Specialization)
Program Size: 60-65
Estimated Cut-off: 8.0
Honours Biochemistry (Biomedical Sciences Specialization)
Program Size: Max 40
Estimated Cutoff: 8.0
Honours Biochemistry (Biotechnology Specialization)
Program Size: Max 25
Estimated Cutoff: 8.0
*I was told the cutoffs were around 7.8 last year so an 8.0 would give you a very good chance to get in.
I did not ask about the Origins Specialization. My apologies to anyone who wanted that info.
Feel free to correct me if any of this is wrong or if I got any of the programs mixed up or to add on to anything I said!
EDIT: Can a moderator tell me when my other account (RememberTwce) is being unbanned. I remember it wasn't permanent but the date no longer appears when I log in.
