    Chances for invite

    Yeah the admission stats are likely inflated above interview stats. Also, most people use the term average and mean interchangeably, even the “Excel” average function spits out the arithmetic mean, so no, these scores are not below average. They might be below the median score, but since the McMaster equation uses the mean (or average) of all three scores, I’m not certain it matters what the median is for one single score. Statistics are never simple lol. But I agree, a really solid CASPER would help their chances since with that CARS score they’re probably on the cusp.
  2. Why, what are your thoughts? So much time to go before interview invites... I’m banning myself from premed101 until the new year lol
  3. Hey everyone! Now that Casper is done... it’s time for constant agonizing re-evaluation of my overall application for four months!!! All jokes aside, does anybody know the weight of the 4% “PhD bonus”? I’m having a hard time grasping numerically how this will affect my z-score. For reference gpa is roughly 3.63 and cars is 130. Mac is my number one school hands down!!!
  4. Is it sad that I'm looking forward to the class full email so that I can put this cycle behind me and focus on next year?
  5. Could just be lack of participation on the board, who knows
  6. Anyone know when we can expect the class is full email?
  7. I hate to say it but it makes me wonder about my LORs as well
  8. No sorry! I'm in for the speculation, still on the list... I am in the same boat as you guys, I felt like I rocked the interview. Was able to overcome any nervousness and showed my very best self. It would be really devastating to find out that the interview was the only source of info for ranking, because I'm not sure how to do better.. ECs are not great, have been working in research for a long time, grad school for the last year and a half, I volunteer as much as I can with science education organizations and have shadowed physicians but nothing really long term... Who knows... Some transparency to this decision would be so wildly appreciated..
  9. Congrats to everyone who escaped the list!!!! Thinking future waves will be much smaller... Fingers still crossed
  10. Way late but what the heck.. Result: Waitlist 2YGPA: 3.73 MCAT: 524 with 130 CARS ECs: Lots of research, environmental field work Interview: MMI felt good, some stations didnt. Panel felt excellent Year: 2nd year MSc Geography: IP
  11. Any idea if there are multiple versions of the wait list email? I know western does it, my email seemed quite neutral but in past years I've seen really encouraging Queens waitlist emails... Thoughts?
