  1. Following University of Calgary: Health Sciences or Biological Science? Hi. I'm applying to the University of Calgary. I just have a question on which program is better (e.g. pros vs. cons). I recently read a post on here about a student transferring from Health Sciences to Biological Sciences (for reasons such as GPA, essay grading, a course specific to Health Science, etc.) and so I'm re-considering applying to Health Sciences. Are there any major pros and cons to taking Health Sciences versus taking Biological Sciences? In addition to my question above: In the event that I do not get into Medical School, I want to be able to take Dentistry at the University of Alberta. Do both programs satisfy the pre-professional for Dentistry at the U of A? Requirements: General Chemistry (*6) Organic Chemistry (*6) Biology(*6) Physics (*6) English (*6) Statistics (*3) Introductory Biochemistry (*3) Notes: *3 is equivalent to one half year course *6 is equivalent to one full year course or two half year courses Which of the two programs would best suit me, considering that I want to be able to take Dentistry at the U of Alberta? I would honestly appreciate any advice on these two programs.
