  1. My status is still showing that I'm on the waitlist too.
  2. Result: Invite!GPA: 3.95 MCAT: 509 (125,128,128,128) Current Degree: Completed by BA last semesterGeography (IP/OOP): OOPExtracurricular Activities (awards, achievements, volunteering, employment, research, etc.): Some long term volunteering and some short term but everything was a bit different and meaningful to me. Started a company and had a long term career entirely unrelated to medicine before applying. Some light research (no pubs) and academic awards.CASPer: Felt better than last year but didn't get and invite to other casper schools.
  3. Does anyone know if there is any chance of getting off the waitlist at this point?
  4. I believe so... No idea how many are on the waitlist or what the movement is like though.
  5. TIME STAMP: 9:10 Result: "decision pending" - waitlist wGPA: Either 3.85 or 3.91 depending on if they considered my letter of EC MCAT: Not submitted ECs: Had a long term career in a non medical field and started my own business. Some sports and music as well as the usual hospital volunteering and community work / mentoring. Some research but no publications. Year: Graduated UG last year IP/OOP/International: IP Letter of EC: Yes
  6. In my mid thirties and I also struggle with some contacts. Many people have moved on in the years or the company itself no longer exists. Thankfully most of my more relevant and impactful work has been more recent. I'm not sure whether or not they can reach someone regarding a paper route job is a make or break . Makes this process that much longer though. Lots of us going through it with you.
  7. I contacted McGill regarding CHEM 350 and they confirmed that they do indeed accept it. I just started the class myself.
  8. Time Stamp: 1:46 Invite/Reject: Rejection GPA: 3.71 CARS: 128 Casper: Answered every question but felt like I let my concern over time affect my answers a little. Overall felt ok though. Geography: IP As a mature applicant who did some undergrad classes ten years ago before I knew I wanted to pursue medicine, I wish McMaster had a time limit on which classes count toward your GPA calculation. Oh well, thankfully most other schools are more concerned with recent academic achievements. I'd also like to remind younger applicants who might be feeling down right now about not getting the response they wanted that there's no such thing as running out of time with this pursuit. Try to never take rejection personally and instead let it build you into an even stronger person and applicant. Your future co-workers and patients will be grateful that you did. Best of luck to everyone that got good news today and to those that will continue the grind. Leg
