  1. Hey keep your chin up, you got this. You're 21 and still have all the time in the world. Just like @la marzocco said, take it step by step because if you look too far ahead, it will definitely feel overwhelming. The road to medicine is rarely a clean one so don't let the obstacles along the way affect your drive! There will be some times where you're going to feel discouraged (which is totally normal), but trust me when I say that every decision you've made in the years of uncertainty will make sense the day you get in. The journey to accomplishing your dream only ends when YOU decide for it to end Feel free to PM me as well for any specific questions about your situation!

    I have no clue tbh. Your guess is as good as mine. It’s honestly so frustrating trying to make sense of these waitlist movements because they’re just so unpredictable. Just be prepared for the worst but hope for the best! I really hope you get through

    Yeah you’re right. I just went back to check. The last movement occurred on June 27th. My bad!

    I remember checking last year’s waitlist thread and noticed that the waitlist stopped moving around July 24th if I’m not mistaken. So there’s definitely still hope!

    Hey, I know this is a late response but I absolutely recommend on redoing your prerequisites. I was in the EXACT same position as you last year. Performed well in my interview but I had a horrible prereq score. I took a gap year to redo mine and it was worth it. Feel free to PM me and I'll be happy to give you details on what I did.

    Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if you got in! Be prepared for the worst, but hope for the best. They don't directly notify you the moment you get in off the waitlist. Once you check your Minerva, you'll see your status change. Just check the waitlist page on the McGill website periodically.

    I could be wrong but I feel like the impact of deferrals is underestimated. McGill's IP applicant pool is comprised of a lot of people who apply during their graduate studies. Therefore, I feel like a lot of them resort to deferring in order to finish what they started. Also, who's to say that some of those seats between 14 and 22 weren't empty already? There could have been someone who got accepted elsewhere earlier and left their waitlist position. If that's the case, it could possibly explain the 8 spot jump that happened on Friday. The possibilities are endless and there's no way of really knowing. I think we just got really lucky this year!

    It just goes to show how it's truly impossible to predict... there are just way too many variables that could cause movement.
