UofT's BSAP - Any experience/advice?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I'm applying to med school this year (I'm from Ontario) and unsure of whether or not to apply to UofT through BSAP or it's regular stream. I'm multiracial - quarter black, quarter Spanish and half Chinese. A lot of people just assume I'm Asian (especially Filipino), latina, half white-half Asian, etc., but people rarely see me as black just based on outward appearances due to my relatively fair skin and wavy hair. I identify quite strongly with my black ancestry and it is a big part of my identity, but my appearance gives me a lot of privilege in our society. I know that BSAP has no cut off, but I am still worried that I may be taking away resources from those who need the support this program provides more than I do.

Does anyone have any advice? If anyone here has applied through the BSAP stream, that would be extremely helpful too.
