  1. I kept track of the waitlist movement for last year's cycle (2018 admissions). If I remember correctly, the waitlist went to #14 in 2017. Next potential offer… April 18th: 5 April 30th: 6 May 9th: 9 May 17th: 10 May 18th: 12 May 23rd: 14 May 31st: 15 June 1st: 23 June 7th: 24 June 27th: 25 July 6th: 26 July 31st: 27 August 6th: 28 Good luck to everyone on the list. I know how you feel but just know that it's not over until it's over. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.
  2. Good luck everyone! Be proud for making it to this point and if you don’t get the outcome you hoped for, don’t let it stop you from pursuing your dreams. It really is a numbers game so persistence is key. If anybody needs to vent after today, feel free to PM me
  3. It's hard to tell what the chances are exactly, but I know a few people who've gotten interviews off the waitlist in previous years. It's not over until it's over!
  4. I think they update everyone's Minerva manually so invites roll out throughout the day.
  5. It means you got the interview, congrats
  6. If I remember correctly, last cycle was the first time they implemented the Casper and the average GPA for interview actually went up. These things are unpredictable though and vary year to year.
  7. I remember hearing so many scary stories about the intensity of med school but I could def confirm that it's been way better than undergrad so far. Undergrad was a huge mental struggle because you're constantly stressing over your GPA and every exam ends up weighing heavy on you. When you're finally in med school, sure there's a lot of info, but it's a whole different ball game especially if you're at a P/F school (which is the case for most schools in Canada at this point). You have this inherent motivation to just learn and absorb as much as you can without it feeling like a burden because you want to be a good doctor in the end. I find myself being significantly less stressed than I was back in undergrad. You're pretty much going through this path with a huge family too so it makes it more fun and less stressful since you're all in it together.
  8. 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!
  9. 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
  10. Yeah you’re right. I just went back to check. The last movement occurred on June 27th. My bad!
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
