    chemicologist got a reaction from 2020medvision in What is your application status in the current cycle?   
    My sense is that since accepted applicants had until April 5th to hold their spot with a paid deposit, presumably close to 120 people have done that by now. The 43 number I provided comes from the number of people enrolled in first year classes for this September (as of this morning on dalonline).
    To me, that would seem to imply that 43 people are absolutely committed to attending Dal this fall, and the remaining 77 may be holding out for another school. Of course, this may be reading way too far into it as there could easily be many of those 77 who are in fact committed to attending who simply haven't registered for their classes yet.
    Sorry for the over-analysis.

    I had a look at those dates posted above on my iCalendar and it seems none of them were later than the third day of the third week in March of each year (sorry a bit neurotic right now haha). To my mind that would put a high probability on tomorrow being the day. Good luck everyone!

    chemicologist got a reaction from NewDirection in Date Speculation   
    I can tell you last year they were saying the exact same thing (nothing more concrete than "by the end of March") except for when an AAMS rep posted a few days into March, on this forum and on the Facebook group, that the adcom had indicated the snowstorms would likely delay the letters, which ended up being sent the morning of March 17th. This makes me think there's no reason to rule out this week, considering recent years have seen letters go out on the 5th, 7th, 11th, etc. and the weather's actually been quite nice in Halifax, contrary to this time last year.
     
    This is speculation on my part based on what happened last year and what I've read about previous years, it could technically be the 31st as well. But probably not haha

    This is blatentley wrong lol.
     
    Your friends simply told you that as a coping mechanism. I know RCSI grads who have matched no problem in CaRMS, and yes many of their peers who also didn't match.
     
    It is definitely not 0%, but its not anywhere close to 100% either. 
     
    And again, some irish students have gotten electives in Canada as well.  
     
    So please, while I do not promote going abroad - presenting false information as fact is a no-no. 
     
    Its akin to telling a kid that smoking is going to instantly kill you to deter them from smoking. Not only is it false, but you're not allowing them to make their own informed judgements based on real facts.

    There is absolutely no necessity to volunteer abroad ever and you can accomplish what you wish more effectively in your own backyard.
