Hey everyone, So, I really wanted to do neuroscience at u of c but, my english mark is dragging me down and I'm pretty much giving up on my dream as I've wanted to get into that program as soon as I heard about it. I have no clue what to do. What do I major in? Is there anything close to neuroscience that I could do? I heard the Health Science degrees are very english based so I can't do those. The general Biological Sciences degree are an option but, I hate ecology and you have to take those classes. Ugh, I'm just so stressed and I don't know what to do.
Shawnk posted a topic in General Premed DiscussionsFollowing 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.
Hey fellow pre-meds! So i'm stuck here in the fork road to chose between kinesiology(general) and biological sciences(general) as my Major. Could anyone give me a comparison between the two? So here's the thing, biological sciences really intrigues me but recently I found out about kine in which you just study about the human body! Doing that would be really fun but what do you think about kine? I really need to take care that the major I choose ensures I'll get a good GPA, i.e I want to take the easier course where getting A's has a better chance. So anyone with kinesiology or biology major would you please help me? Also a few more questions to the kine and bio majors, What subjects do you study in your first and second year? Are there any common subjects with the Bsc and Bkin degrees? What was your GPA and how hard did you have to work on it? Would you recommend me taking me your major? Please share your thoughts! Even your tinniest answers would be really helpful for me! Thanks in Advanced.
