How's everybody holding up? I've been lurking for a while now, and figured it was time to come out of the shadows... The wait is driving me crazy!
When I started the application process last summer, I didn't think I stood a chance (I'm a very non-traditional applicant). Now here I am on the waitlist - yippee!
What's really worrying me, though, is that my Plan B is about to become real. Plan B (an exciting job offer) involves picking up my family and moving out to Nova Scotia, so I'm worried that I'll need to make a decision on Plan B before the waitlist starts to move. Plan A (U of C) is still by far my first choice.
Anyway, just thought I'd reach out to wish you all the best of luck. I hope you're all managing to stay distracted. Have a fabulous long weekend, and maybe we'll start to see some waitlist movement at the end of next week!
Hi OldBat, I hope you we get some real results soon! It sounds like either way you have an adventure ahead!
I agree with the wait driving me crazy and welcome from the shadows!
Also MountainAmoeba, I've heard some debate on this topic? Something about the possibility of drawing off the waitlists to try and fill the OOP quota, so separate waitlists would make sense. But I also heard (and purely speculation) from other forum posts that the way it may work is drawing off the top of the waitlist regardless and since some of the OOP scores may be higher, they have some greater movement. Mind you, HUGE grain of salt with that one.
The Shred25, this is one iteration I've heard, but there doesn't seem to be a clear consensus on the topic.
