    Applying while doing masters?

    Just noticed this now, why does McGill award MDCM as opposed to just an MD?

    IP is moving faster than historical average and OOP is moving slower than historical average.
  3. I almost prefer all 17 schools having one centralized system. Let's say all results are released May 1 with those having multiple offers given 2 weeks to decide. This will not only help candidates, but also remove a lot of information asymmetry across medical schools.
  4. Some schools like McGill have very good transparency; they give you your exact position on the waitlist and update their website concurrently with data such as "next offer will be extended to ## on the waitlist". I almost feel like this is one way reduces stress and increases transparency.

    Merci!! mais je pense que je devrait accepter l'offre d'Ottawa avant le 22 mai.. est-ce que quelqu'un sait que l'on peut continuer a tenir sa place sur la LA a McGill si on accepte ailleurs?

    Reduction in medical enrolment positions

    Am I missing something? I am adding up the numbers but I get 166 spots at McGill for Fall 2018? IP universitaire: 80 Prior year NTP: 2 Prior year MedP: 71 OOP: 10 International: 2 MD/PhD: 1 Did they actually reduce enrolment at UdeM/Sherbrooke/Laval as well?

    En ce moment il y a plus de mouvement dans la liste d'attente pour le contingent IP que l'an dernier - c'est rassurant au moins!

    Not necessarily. The biggest driver of offers is interview performance at most school. The average GPA for the 10 accepted OOP is 3.92 this year, whereas it was 3.97 last year. The 0.05 is unlikely to be driving that much of a difference. EDIT: Plus, the sample size is so small.. 10 people. It is hard to draw any meaningful conclusions.
