Biomedical Mechanical Engineering @Uottawa

Hey I am currently a grade 12 student in Ontario, the program I am interested in has a cut off of high 80s, normally this wouldn’t be a problem, but I recently realized that this program has 6 prerequisite courses, being gr12 chem,phys,bio,advF,calcVectors and English. This leaves me to believe I might end up with a mid 80s average. I have already taken AP exams and I have plentiful EC’s and volunteering hours(300+). Is it still possible to make it into this program. Thank you ^^

  1. If the cut-off is high 80s and your average falls below that, then probably not. It’s a competitive average for a reason. Unless they’re looking to fill capacity and they have some open seats left in the tail-end of the cycle, you probably won’t get it with lower than the absolute minimum.

  2. The most recent admissions information on CUDO shows that the average entering admission average for UOttawa Engineering at 86.5% with 35.2% having admissions averages in the 80-84% range so you might have a shot. The only caveat is that this information is for the 2016-2017 admissions year and so is 3 years old. Admissions averages have a tendency to go up every year so it’s probably higher than that now. Carleton also offers Biomedical Mechanical Engineering and has a slightly lower admissions average so you might want to consider applying there as well.
