    Queens Waitlist 2018

    So from here on out are offers given out sporadically throughout the next few weeks?

    Queens Waitlist 2018

    I was really defeated after seeing offers go out today and not receiving one. But after reflecting a bit I know I have an MPH waiting for me. The only thing that hurts is feeling like I am falling "behind" because I will be older after a masters and taking a year off, but its a pretty irrational fear. It's not over yet, but planning to move on...

    Not all heroes wear capes (unless you wear capes). Good luck with wherever youre going! And thanks for giving us waitlisters some sage advice.

    Chances for queens?

    EC’s and gpa are good. But you will need to rewrite the MCAT to have a shot. Queens has a cut off for each section and the total. I dont think ive ever seen anyone under a 510 get an interview.

    Yeah this is probably the best representation of the case. Yikes. Im not sure I like my odds anymore.

    Queens Waitlist 2018

    I honestly expect the waitlist to be around 150. If the waitlist was as many as 300 then almost everyone interviewed would be on the waitlist. This is surely not the case as I know many friends who were outright rejected by Queens, so I assume a decent amount of people were rejected (but accepted at other schools, so they must've been qualified in some capacity). Unless its a sampling bias and my friends are just not what Queens are looking for.

    U of T vs. MacMed

    Something thats sort of underrated is Hamilton as a city. Contrary to popular belief, hamilton is a growing and thriving city with lots of good food and beautiful waterfalls and hikes. Its a great way to destress. There is a true sense of community in hamilton and if you want to be involved with tackling some of the issues Hamiltonians face (social determinants of health) theres lots of people doing work. Also the cost of living in Hamilton and U of T is drastically different, if you want to consider things like debt. MAC has alot of strong researchers in bench work, clinical epi, etc. My mac med friends that I have spoken to havent really described any stress in the preclinical years and find it quite enjoyable. Depends on your learning style.

    Queens waitlist poll.

    reporting bias of people stuck in limbo still on the forum looking for hope, while those rejected are too apathetic to respond, those accepted too busy celebrating?

    Queens waitlist poll.

    I wish we got some indication about where we are on the waitlist, but it's better than getting rejected I guess. Here's to praying that lots of waitlist movement occurs and we all get in

    You get a call for waitlisters not emails?
  14. So who else is frustrated and scared... being on the waitlist is not a rejection but also not an acceptance lol. So we wait some more...
