    karl heider got a reaction from zackattack881 in Waitlist Support Thread - 2018   
    Sure,
    to start sorry for my english since it's my third language
    ABS: not a whole lot of work experience 3 - 4 jobs/ research : 1 pub and some extra stuff for undergrads/ volunteering : very diverse, psychiatric hospital for 3 years, community centers, hospitals in Africa, shadowing a company doctor for a mining company and other things/ for extracurricular : mainly my participation in this crazy program called mars one and everything that came out of that (for ABS i truly believe it's the way you present your activities that is important rather than quantity)
    Casper : it was my first casper and i felt i did bad, but when i talked to other people i think i did well since i answered all the questions, made a list of words that are synonymous with empathy, compassion and other words that i felt were important in the context of an ethical dilemma. and made sure to use them. tried to remain firm in my answers but also show personal compassion in combination with a respect  and understanding of the rules in an ethical scenario
    Interview : i over-prepped for the interview, paid a company to do mock interviews, and had mock interviews with anyone willing including medstudents, i over practiced and all the feedback that i got was good. there are certain questions that are obvious that you can rehearse a lot and thats what i did, (and it was a big mistake). first question was one of those obvious questions but just tweaked a little, but i started answering the way i practiced and it was bad since the answer i gave didn't exactly answer what they asked me. i was aware it was a mistake so i just threw away all the answers i knew by heart and started going freestyle and being myself, i was way less stressed and alot more fluid when i was just myself. and the rest of the interview i felt went perfectly. so other than the first question the rest was good. 
    everyone says be yourself during the interview, and i agree. over practicing can be deadly. 
    if you need any details PM me

    they also say they are waiting for responses from certain candidates, which is weird since on paper the deadline for the first wave of calls is way passed

    i didn't mention any stream i was talking in general, but she might have interpreted my question as a french stream question since i was speaking in french.

    Okay I called them to ask what is going on. It was Diane who replied and she says she is not sure if the first wave of calls/emails for the people on the waitlist is done or not. I asked specifically for CNFS and she said she does not know, because it is Chantale who takes care of this stuff. She said Chantale has been gone since Friday and only comes back tomorrow. She also said that they will be sending an email to the waitlisters once the class is entirely full, but NOT after a specific stream is full. So say CNFS was full, we’d only know when the entire class is complete. She really wasnt much help since she is not aware of anything.

    i don't think it's fair to tell people that they should see this as a reason to improve themselfs. the interview process is one of the most subjective ways to judge an applicant, especially a pannel interview. of course it's always good to improve yourself, but this should be no matter if you get accepted and not. in my opinion the interview part is legit luck based
