    Carms 2016- 2Nd Iteration

    It's actually not. The spots you see left over at Western Family every year are initially IMG spots which weren't available to CMGs first round (this is also true of the anesthesia spot left over at Western this year). All the CMG spots tend to fill every year. Western Family is quite selective with which IMGs they choose to rank first round and as a result, usually have spots left over in the second round, making it seem like they never fill. Western family is actually quite popular with people in the Southwestern Ontario region, and there are CMGs who don't end up getting their first choice of stream etc.

    Unspecified Campus

    Hi cindylouwho, I've posted about this before - I was offered an unspecified campus offer a couple years ago. In my year, class of 2016, which was the first year they did the 'unspecified campus' offers, everyone ended up getting their first choice of campus. Of course, things change from year to year, so that may or may not be true for this cycle. Hope that helps!

  8. I got an unspecified campus offer last year. From what I can tell, the majority of people who got these offers were people who had London as their first choice and all of us eventually ended up in London! I know it's difficult to accept an offer before knowing the campus and things change every year, but there's definitely a chance that you will get your first choice campus!

    2012 Waitlist Thread

    I meant that I hadn't received an email from Schulich saying that they received confirmation of my offer from OMSAS. I know that I will only hear about unspecified campus on June 4th.

    Unspecified Campus?

    Second what scao said - thanks rmorelan and Stahs for the info! Knowing there is a definite possibility of being at London makes my decision a bit easier.
  13. Accepted (Hamilton)! cGPA: 3.84 MCAT: 11 VR ECs: 2 research positions (no publications), 1 long-term employment and involvement with one university club. I thought Casper and MMI went really well for me this cycle, but after learning more about the program I am not sure whether it is a good fit for me. Also interviewed at Queen's and Western and received offers from both, so I have a lot of thinking to do about this.
  14. Accepted! 2 year GPA 3.89/ cGPA 3.84 10PS/11VR/11BS Q MCAT 4th year undergrad ECs: 2 research positions (no publications), 1 long-term employment and involvement with a university club. MMI part of the interview was hit and miss for me - some stations I thought went well and some were not as good, one was absolutely tragic. Panel went very well, helped me end my interview on a high note. Also interviewed at Western and McMaster and received offers from both. Big decision to make!
  15. Accepted at Unspecified campus - Accepted to London campus on June 4th. Top 2 years GPA: 3.89 (cGPA 3.84) non-SWOMEN MCAT: 32Q (10PS/11VR/11BS) ECs: 2 research positions (no publications), 1 long-term employment, involvement with a university club. Did not think my interview went very well at all, so surprised at the offer. Really had my heart set on Western after my interview, but unspecified campus kind of puts a damper on things. Also interviewed at McMaster and Queens and received offers from both. Big decision to make!
