As rural_roots said, it was Jan 14th last year, but don't worry if you don't receive anything this week. It was Jan 20th the year before, and Jan 23rd the year before that  :)

I am getting excited about hearing back! I can't believe it's almost here. In an effort to keep my anxiety down, I've plastered my desk in sticky notes listing the dates that applicants received interview invites in previous years... Along with most of my OMSAS information so I can stop obsessively checking my profile (an obviously pointless compulsion because obviously nothing is changing at this point!). 

 

Fingers crossed!

This scared me so much... I thought that emails were sent and I missed it... Raised my HR a bit.

Hey Rural roots, just curious, you've been applying for 5 years now. I am interested in knowing about your stats? GPA? Extra curriculars? 5 years is a quite a lengthly endeavour.

Hold on to your hat! You'll hear everyone's stats once invites come out.

The wait isn't actually bothering me this year (hey, there has to be some perks that come along with applying 5 times).  The real challenge is typically the 6-8 weeks post interview, that'll test your mettle.

 

I'll be happy to receive an invite to interview - it'll help me refocus on this odyssey of mine.

I can understand you man, I've been doing this for 5 years too, even took the MCAT which isn't mandatory in Quebec for french school. It'll all be worth it in the end!

Aw shucks guys, thanks!  :)

 

I am in a decent place with it all I think.  I've come to realize that life will go on, with or without medicine.  I'm throwing it out there again and we'll see what happens.

Let's all hope for tomorrow.  At first I was thinking about it...  But now, I get home and the kids make me forget about it!  The part that makes me most nervous is that my wife is expecting our third child, due Sept 2017....  All of you heard it first!  Family and friends don't even know yet.  lol
