Congrats to everyone who has been accepted today and best of luck to those in the waitlist pool like me. To those who received regrets, please don't give up and keep trying. Everyone is definitely a qualified candidate for med!

I just started this poll for those of us waiting on the waitlist. AFAIK, the waitlist does move quite a bit and according to the AFMC from 2017 and 2016, they usually send about another 90-100 offers to those on the waitlist.

This is the same poll as the one created for last year's cycle. You can refer here for information in regards to last year's movement.

Good luck!

Any idea if there are multiple versions of the wait list email? I know western does it, my email seemed quite neutral but in past years I've seen really encouraging Queens waitlist emails... Thoughts?

I wonder why Queens doesn't do the whole high/normal/low waitlist given that arguably the main bulk of applicants are WL'd post-interview. Or we just have extremely skewed numbers here.


2016/2017 Cycle:

 

Applied: UBC (IP), Queens

Interviewed: Queens

Waitlisted: Queens

Accepted:

Movement

- 100 Spots

- 197 total offers (from AFMC 2017) typically sent out per year means ~97 people move from waitlist position to accepted status

 

As to waitlist size...

I'd estimate less than 400 invited for interview (4 interview dates * approximately 100 interviewees on each day? - just a rough estimate, I couldn't find harder stats).

 

Out of those 400, 100 people were provided offers already and maybe about 100 people were unfortunately given rejection letters (again just an approximation based on nothing). So that leaves around 200 of us waitlistees in the middle. If 97 of us '200' move from waitlist to accepted you have about a 1 in 2 chance. 

 

Speaking of probability, there's a 1 in 2 chance I have no idea what I'm talking about and I'm completely incorrect. Yay!

 

 Regardless, you're still awesome for making a waitlist and for even getting an interview in the first place. Congrats! :)

Not counting those that will leave the waitlist if they get an offer from another school!

Yes true, I'm just hoping that the waitlist moves more than 97 deep given that some people will leave the waitlist before getting an offer.

You and me both. I am curious though: are we sure that somebody who leaves the waitlist before getting an offer doesn't count in the 97?

I don't see why they would- 197 is total offers given, somebody who leaves the waitlist by accepting another Ontario school acceptance (or an OOP acceptance and emails to remove themselves) would never be offered admission so shouldn't count. I could be wrong though..

Edit: If anyone gets off the waitlist could you post here? I'm curious about when the first round of emails get sent out!

Hello fellow waitlist-ers!

 

Anyone know whether the time stamp on the waitlist email has some kind of correlation to where one stands on the ranking list? From what I see on Accepted/Rejected/Waitlist thread, most people seem to got their waitlist emails 9:15-30 am but mine arrived at 9:45 EST. Does this mean anything? Perhaps I am at the bottom of the waitlist? :(

Yep, same mine went from pending to waitlist and back now to pending.

There's no way we can know this. In 2 weeks we'll hopefully see who gets the first round of offers and whether there's any correlation to email timestamp.

My SOLUS still says Pending. My paranoid mind is reading all kinds of things into this likely innocuous fact.
