  1. I guess this is it. Thanks for gathering that info for us @Ohvalleyofplenty. I know I shouldnt keep hope anymore, but because the school wasnt communicating, it was hard to tell what to expect. Congrats to those of you that that made it in and best of luck to those trying again in future
  2. Welcome to our virtual community and congratulations on your acceptance!!!
  3. Yea its definitely not a good representative. Not a single OOP waitlisted applicant posted here, and I'm sure there's quite a number of them too. Would they answer questions like what % of the class is full now? I'll try asking that when I call them
  4. Yeah, feels strange. Please let your fellow waitlisters know if you get in
  5. Yep, the number of god tier applicants is too high and the number of spots is too low.
  6. I agree, it's definitely very disrespectful. However, I do believe that there are some very understanding supervisors who would be willing to push that cutoff date to late summer. My friend did that deferral at U of C. Just checked the U of A website and oddly they only take 2 MD/PhD students per year. The number is so much higher at U of C
  7. ^I had a friend in your scenarios. It came down to 2 options. Either quit the graduate program which could be still doable if you haven't started. Or defer admission to do grad studies first i.e do MD/PhD.
  8. congrats @frost7337!!! how many others do you know got accepted today?
  9. sigh, and May hasn't even ended yet..
  10. Glad that the theory doesn't fit. I really thought we would hear of several more acceptances today what do y'all think?
  11. Congrats!!! Hope there's more love from U of A to the rest of us
  12. imo these are drivers waitlist movement: 1- # of people offered at both U of A & U of C. This number probably changes from year to year. I imagine some 50-100 people are offered at both schools. Also, depends on how many of these people end up choosing U of C over U of A. 2- # of people that take their name off waitlist. There's some people that are accepted at U of C or other schools, but they remain waitlisted at U of A. When they remove their name, waitlist moves. 3- depends if U of A over offers like U of C does. I want to think U of A doesnt because they've already sent additional offers last week. 4- # of unfilled OOP seats. This is determined by the nature of the OOP applicants i.e how many acceptances they have and how much they prefer U of A over other schools. According to AFMC data, an average of 55 offer declines at U of A over past 4 years. So I'm sure the top 50 waitlisted will be offered. But depending on the above factors, waitlist probably can go deeper. Sadly, U of A never reveals how deep they go. The only good news is that at U of C last year, they offered people into the 90s from 148 people on waitlist. For their class of 135, 200 initial offers. 60 initial declines. 60 offers to waitlist. 32 declines from waitlist. 30 people removed name from waitlist = waitlist reaches 90. We can only hope the something similar happens this year at U of A... #endpostmidnightrant
  13. Your GPA and MCAT don't look too bad for U of A. If you check the stats of accepted applicants, you're right on par. That being if you scored 512 on your first attempt and you think you can do better, then go ahead and try again. If you did it multiple times and 512 is your peak, don't bother writing it. Its actually a pretty decent score for both AB schools. Your ECs don't look too bad either. It could be how you worded them on your application, or maybe the hours were not good enough, or maybe something went wrong with your verifiers. ECs are also quite subjectively assesed and your score can widely change from year to year. Also make sure to do well on Casper. No one knows for sure how that is assesed, but I imagine that if you score low on it, it could potentially bring your total application score down. As for future plans, plan for an alternative career. I have had friends do grad studies, professional programs, technical degrees or find work. Pursue your interests and make the best of this free time you have.
  14. Not looking very good for me either. At least it gives a sense of closure. Having some hope is more painful than no hope at all :/ If those that are accepted could kindly share their 4 digit # or an estimate of it, it would greatly help us confirm this theory.
  15. Interesting. IP waitlist longer than 100 people then.
