    Just to update: The Med2 classes have been fixed and now display the full 120 so someone has gone in to administrate changes recently. Also, if they do "block" registration for 1st year the numbers still aren't adding up properly but most classes now show either 17 or 22 spots available. Again, this may not be indicative of anything accurate at all, but it is all we have to go by for now!

    Yes, the class of 2024 group. Oh so it has both 2023 and before? That makes sense. Thanks so much for clearing that up.

    Which Facebook group are you referring to?
    The Dalhousie Medicine Class of 2024 is the group you join once formally accepted. This group has nearly all students from the Class of 2023 group, as well as a few class of 2022 members. So the number of members in that group is useless. The only real benefit is to see the “New to the Group” section to see when they might have joined - although this doesn’t necessarily mean they have just gotten in off the WL. Is this clear?

    I was thinking you might have. I can understand completely why you’re looking at them numbers.. trust me there! It’s just that they seem a bit off this year, unsure why.

    Good point, I will second this. Try not to get hung up on the numbers here. I just finished Med1 at Dal. By looking at the academic timetable where those numbers were pulled from, there are several discrepancies, like class size, different number of people in different classes, etc. 
    Unless they’ve changed it for this year, last year you registered for all Med 1 courses using “block registration” meaning you register for all of the classes with one click. So I’m not sure why there are differing numbers between units (e.g., between Foundations and Host Defence, etc).
    I can tell you that while Host Defence is quite challenging, there’s no way there is 20 people repeating it. Just out of the question. Med2’s do not take Host Defence, unless they’ve not passed the exam after several iterations, which is very unlikely. Med2 classes are also messed up too. There should be 116 seats available for all Med 2 classes, not 20..
    TLDR; Don’t focus on the numbers, they look all messed up. Remain hopeful that the WL will move all.

    Hi all
    Last year I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to get in once I was waitlisted. I was one of the fortunate ones, and there are a few of us, who got in off the NS waitlist. I wanted to let you all know to have hope, especially if you’re one who is quite high on whichever waitlist you’re on, and even if your a bit farther down on the WL. The waitlist does move. It varies year to year, most of the movement occurs on the out of province waitlist, but other lists definitely move as well. I vividly remember hoping people decline their offers, which may sound odd to some people, but probably not to those on the WL. 
    Below are statistics from the AFMC  (https://afmc.ca/sites/default/files/pdf/2020_admission-requirements_EN.pdf) about Dalhousie. Pay attention to the “Offer Declined” section, which tells you how many students got in off the waitlist. 
    I hope this helps many of you ease your minds and remain hopeful. 
    Let me know if you any questions at all.

    How many OOP seats for the class in general? If so, I believe there are Nine OOP seats, although they upped the capacity this year by 12, so unclear if any of those go to OOP students, I’m betting not, but don’t quote me on that. 
     
    Unfortunately those statistics I posted don’t break down how many declined by province. If you go back through the forums over the years, the PEI list has moved, just like the others.

    Hang in there everyone! You’ve waited around 4 months this cycle already since interviews. This is just a bump in the road. You’ll be in the class of 2024 soon enough. 
    All hands are on deck for the current classes to my knowledge, organizing how we are going to finish the year online - very challenging with lots of moving parts. Unfortunately we are missing out on all clinical activities for the remainder of the term.
    We are all suffering, prospective students and current students, but we are in it together.

    Dalhousie23 got a reaction from navymd in In province question   
    If you’re at Dalhousie for school and you’re from OOP,  you’re not considered IP as you’re technically a temporary resident of the province. To be classified as IP, in a nutshell, if you’re parents don’t live in the Maritimes (say they and yourself are from Ontario) and you attended Dal for undergrad whilst parents living in Ontario, then you’d need to live in the Maritimes for 12 entire months not attending school (likely working) prior to the application submission deadline. Its slightly different if you’ve been a full-time student in the same province for 6+ years (see second post above). 

    So if you are finished undergrad now (October) and living back in Ontario, you would not be eligible for IP status NEXT application cycle even if you moved and started working here tomorrow. This is because the applications are due in early September, and that would not have been 12 months. So although it may only seem like living here for 1 year, you have to take into account what month it is.
    Hopefully thats clear. The whole IP, indep/dep student thing is not crystal clear, at least imo. 
    I’d direct you to contact the admissions office as well.

    Oh. Well I don’t recall reading that for my cycle. Perhaps thats new? Not sure. 
    If thats the case, then yes I would do as you said, to use your best three years without a doubt. I do specifically recall them weighting the gpa based on credit hours, but maybe they’ve done away with that?
