With 4k students applying to McMaster Health Sciences and only 206 spots available, Mac Health Sci is one of the most competitive programs in Canada.
While grades are important for your admission, the supplemental essays are the best way for you to stand out, gain an edge, and show who you are as a student.
The strength of your supplementary essays will determine an acceptance or rejection—but doing a high-quality job takes time that you don’t have, given all your other commitments.
Stop scrambling for feedback and answers. Get clear, proven advice from a professional you can trust.
Believe it or not, McMaster Health Sciences applicants submit shockingly similar and uncreative supplementary essays.
We assist students in developing essays that truly stand-out, while selecting the pieces of your life—most of which you might overlook—to create a truly compelling and authentic application.
We don’t just edit essays. We help craft clear and compelling responses that perfectly encapsulate who you are and what the admissions committee is looking for.
For 10+ years, we’ve read so many applications that we know what works and what doesn’t—we’ll steer you away from unoriginal, cliché, or ‘no-no’ strategies.
Hi I’m Shaar!
I’m a recent McMaster Bachelor of Life Science grad and currently working at WE, an international development charity and youth empowerment movement.
I have a unique background as both a scientist and businesswoman, specializing in program design, student development, and leadership coaching.
I will help students who are interested in applying to McMaster and pursuing multiple career paths.
I’m excited to work 1-1 together!
Hi, I’m Joshua!
I’m a recent McMaster BHSc (Health Sci) grad now pursuing the medical school route.
I'm blessed (and quite lucky) I got into Mac. I didn't have any support on my application, and it really took a toll on the stress I underwent in my Grade 12 year.
I believe students applying to university—particularly highly competitive programs like Mac—deserve accessible support options.
That's why I coach BHSc applicants to become the best applicants (and students) they can be. Looking forward to working together!

“Joel’s program helped me significantly develop my leadership skills and build an application that got me admitted to McMaster Health Sciences—my dream program.”
"Initially, I was concerned about hiring someone for my son in his pursuit of admission to Mac.
I had heard all sorts of stories about application services and I wanted my son to be admitted on his own merits. Joel did a wonderful job of coaching my son. He helped him develop his thoughts and express them clearly. Joel showed a great deal of patience and in the end, my son was accepted to both the Health Science and Integrated Science programs. This success would not have happened without Joel’s help and I would recommend him to anyone looking for admission to these “hard to get into” programs.”
“I had Joel help me with my McMaster Integrated Science and Health Science application. He really made this intimidating process much less stressful and I was accepted to both programs.
He did that by really outlining what the university’s are going to be looking for in an application and he helped me really dig down to find subjects that I’m passionate about writing and it really shows on my applications.
Overall, he knows what he’s doing. He has a lot of experience and that shows. He’s been super helpful and helped me produce a very solid application for both programs."
“Joel has been working with me for the past six months in the process of putting together my Health Science application. He was extremely thorough and knowledgeable throughout the entire process and in answering any questions I had to begin with.
With his help I was able to start up my first entrepreneurial project, something I'm sure I would not have been able to do without his help. Together we were able to put together an application that communicated my ideas and represented who I was as a student. I would highly recommend Joel and his expertise to anyone and I cannot thank him enough for his help.”
