So where does CAPS lead?
 Co-op options
 Exposure to lab, formal scientific writing (reports,
thesis)
 What you’re all waiting for: Medical School
 2014 Grad year: 7 / 16 in med (44%)
 2015 Grad year: 3 / 15 in med (20%)
 Compare this to 14.9% overall acceptance of UBC (2013)
Personal Experience
 Labs are fantastic (10/10 would recommend)
 Lab reports, well, not so much.
 Small groups -> Great friends
