  1. Hey, I am just rolling thoughts around in my head as I sit on Queen's' waitlist. After 4 cycles, I am losing my patience with this process and feeling very stagnant and defeated. Trying to find ways to regain some control over my life and start moving forward... Something I have wanted to do is move to Australia. My partner and I have friends there, like the country and have no significant ties to Canada. I am looking at applying to Monash U's graduate medical program... primarily because my MCAT is out of date for all the other schools (and I am not prepared to retake it right now) and the next GAMSAT is in September. Potentially considering writing the GAMSAT so it doesn't mess up my MCAT for Canadian schools. What are my chances for receiving an offer - I can't seem to find stats for international applicants' matriculation percentages. How about chances for receiving an Australian internship/residency and completing my training and becoming a full doctor there? I am particularly interested in emergency medicine, ob/gyn, trauma surgery... I am not set on any State or city. I am open to rural as well. I am likely going to scout out the country for 6 months to a year on a Working Holiday Visa if I don't get into Queen's and make sure I would be happy to live there, but I'm pretty sure already that I would be happy to be there forever if not quite a few years. I really need to move forward in my life and I feel as though I can't because I am waiting cycle after cycle, putting pause on major life decisions I would like to start making. Thanks for any words of advice/input/etc.
  2. Thank you for your service! And congrats for two offers

    Waitlist Thread 2019

    Is there any reason I should log into SOLUS? And how does one do so?
  4. Good to hear there is some hope for WL because I'm struggling with the wait :/

    Waitlist Thread 2019

    My own uninformed guess was originally 80 ppl, but hearing that 94 were offered from WL makes me think somewhere between 120-200 ppl on WL. Meaning like 200-280 got rejected today. But I know very little about Queen's' process and am just grasping as well.

    Waitlist Thread 2019

    Do we know if they offer in cycles? Like every two weeks or could it be literally any day any time?
  7. Omg, I feel sick... waitlist is almost worse than just knowing...
  8. Result: Waitlisted Timestamp: 8:44am GPA: 3.96 MCAT: 511 EC: diverse, etc. Geography: OOP Interview: went well, panel was good Year: already have BSc
  9. I'm scared to look I don't want the let-down feeling if I'm rejected... but I also want to know... in case I am accepted... Going to wait until 9am EDT to check anything.... Damn this is hard.

    CBD Clinic

    I personally wouldn't, but I'm not into that culture anyway... idk what to tell you. I personally think the perception about cannabis products is still too risky for applications... bear in mind it might affect you at the US border too?? I travel a lot to USA and I would consider residency in the States so these things are important to me. But that's my opinion for me.

    Keep busy, see friends, focus on school/work/volunteering, try a new hobby, read a book, watch Netflix, etc. Try mindfulness and staying present because it does no good to focus on something that is out of your hands now.
