  1. Being on the waitlist is such rollercoaster. I was sad at first, then saw the waitlist moving and got happy, then it stopped moving and got sad again and now it's moving again. I feel that it's more emotionally exhausting then being refused right off the bat. I want to consider myself already refused to not hang on false hope, but it's so hard!
  2. I second @meddstudent2020 on that and also Ottawa if I am not mistaken which is usually around May the 14th. I don't know about other Canadian universities but I am pretty sure they didn't all release their answers yet. Also, the reason why there was a movement today is because one of the candidates posted earlier this week that they gave up their offer for a career change.
  3. I noticed the font too. It's funny and sad at the same time haha. Thewaitlist will probably be stagnant until mid May. If it helps you focus on something else.
  4. It most likely means that the 12 people that were moved from the OUTA waitlist, where also in the mtl waitlist and they were moved by default.
  5. It's the question of the year ( other than the question : where Sars-cov-2 really originated from) haha. I still don't think I have a chance, but I'm happy it is moving fast
  6. If they agreed to increase the number of seats in Outaouais, wouldn't we have seen a movement of the Outaouais waitlist instead of Montreal?
  7. I thought I was refused at first. TIME STAMP: I am not sure but I checked in the early evening Result: Waitlisted : MTL #54 , OUTA #20 Pre-req GPA: 3.77 MCAT: No Feeling About MMI (please be mindful of NDA): Felt horrible compared to last year. Kept wondering if the decisions I had made were right. Year: finishing M.Sc IP/OOP/International: IP Comments: these waitlist numbers are confusing me... I don't know if they are good news or bad news. Congratulations to all those who got the sweet news of acceptance! All of you worked so hard ! For those who got refused or waitlisted, don't forget that you are a great candidate and you are considered la crème de la crème. Always remember why medicine is your passion.
  8. Last year it was 30 for IP. With the new campus the WL seems to be extended but it's so odd. I don't get why....
  9. I doubt it... The limitation comes from the spots allowed by the government and not the medical school itself. That been said, it could be different this time...
  10. Result: invite ! wGPA: 3,89 MCAT: N/A ECs: PM me for more details but I believe that I have a balanced CV overall with publications , conferences, awards, organizing events with various non-profit organizations, consistently volunteering locally and abroad and hobbies ( electronic devices troubleshooting, recreational diving, science awareness blog, self-taught languages). Casper : I think I did good. The only preparation I did was on how to structure the answer framework. Letter of EC: Yes, but it's not relevant as that year doesn't count in my undergrad, but I submitted one just in case. Additional : it's always a blessing to have an invite even if it's not the first time, but for reapplicants like me who've done the interview previously and keep getting refused at a few spots away from the waitlist, it's so hard to be so excited about it unless we actually get in. Good luck to everyone doing the interviews. And for those who got refused, it's a tough pill to swallow, but seriously just keep trying and if you're too far on the list, consider changing things in your application. Sometimes little things could make a huge difference in where you rank ❤️ Cheers.
  11. I was worried about this too since now they merged NTP applicants with the regular stream which would make it more competitive.
  12. Hi Jero123, First of all, have a deep breath and do not worry too much. If your proof of residency papers were not good, they would have contacted you and told you exactly what you would be missing. Also, have you looked on the table with all the items ? (picture attached). It should say QC residency verified. As long as that there, it's perfect. If you want to have a peace of mind, you can always contact the admission and make sure everything is in order. Good luck !
  13. They take your score in % and use it for the GPA conversion without looking at your R-score. https://www.mcgill.ca/medadmissions/applying/requirements/elements/maaw Download the user guide pdf on this page. It has a section for Cégep grade conversion.
  14. It might take you another few years in university, but don't give up if this is really what you want!!!! You'll see how fast it goes by
