  1. I don't believe those who got accepted are necessarily 'better' than me. There are many factors that contributed to my outcome, such as the differences in opportunities some applicants have had over me. As a first-generation Canadian of a low socioeconomic background and a limited social network, I did not have the same opportunities and advantages that some of the class would have. This is not to downplay or undermine the hard work that must accompany the successful applicant. I am just responding to your presumptions of my reasoning.
  2. 24 isn't very old, but there is something that irks me about being in a class of students younger than I am. It's as if I was held back a year or two in primary/secondary school. It's a stupid thought, I know, but it just doesn't settle with me.
  3. I appreciate your guys' posts. I certainly wouldn't want any other applicants to give up hope like I have, especially if med school is their passion, but I am ready to give up the goal I've held for the past 8 years of my life. I am sick and tired of going through this awful process just to end up feeling defeated and useless. I'm not sure where I can go now, or what I will do next, but I will be pulling my name off the waitlist.
  4. The older I get, the more I despise the thought of being in a class that is mostly younger than me. I am only 24, but still.. I think it's time for me to give up.
  5. Already given up hope a few weeks ago. I would have rather got a rejection than this awful waitlist, just to eliminate that tiny glimpse of hope.
  6. Guessing it's safe to assume that the class is filled now. Being on the waitlist was worse than I thought it'd be.
  7. They've all been sent out at once, probably. The only thing to do now is to wait for the waitlist to move. I'm going to bet that the vast majority of offers are sent out on the first day, i.e. today.
  8. Looks like UofC sent their first waitlist offers yesterday morning.
  9. Indeed. Thanks for this message. To be honest, this wait isn't nearly as anxiety-inducing for me as the initial e-mails were.
  10. isnt may 30th the earliest that waitlist offers are being sent out anyways?
  11. Thank you for sharing your admissions decisions with the rest of us. Trust me when I say that this helps relieve some anxiety of being on the waitlist
  12. Result: Waitlisted GPA: 3.91 MCAT: 513 ECs: tutoring, two summers research, three years volunteering at a hospital, independent research project Year: Graduated June 2015 Geography: IP Interview: considering my interview score was abysmal last year (at 10.7 with average for successful applicants being 22), I'd say I've most certainly improved my performance. I feel conflicted. Either way, I already have alternate plans of graduate studies / pharmacy school, so I don't feel hopeless. Congrats to everyone who got accepted!
  13. I thought I'd be happy at this announcement, but I am actually extremely anxious.
  14. Just out of curiosity, has anybody's references been contacted? Mine haven't been contacted since before the MMIs, as far as I know.
