  1. This usually happens sometime in May and is done by the Medical Student's Society council members. They do this once they receive a student list from the faculty. You will receive an email when this group is created inviting you to join. I cannot say exactly when it will happen, but it should happen very soon. Stay Safe and congrats on your admission!
  2. If you need to complete your Masters then you do have a legit reason, for sure. My statement was more geared towards if people are thinking of deferring just due to the online situation.
  3. Hi! Yes the decision of it being online is not easy to take when starting a new program but deferring is not likely to work for you. To defer you need a legitimate reason as indicated on the McGill Admissions website... https://www.mcgill.ca/medadmissions/after-youve-applied/deferred-admission Again, you will be getting a high rate education nonetheless and it being online does not downgrade it. You are mostly in lectures and small group anyways for the first year. They will also likely be doing in person skill based activities and labs, as needed, and with precautions.
  4. This is not a new thing, they have done this is in the past and it is done to confirm what you have done on your CV. It is likely they are contacting only now as they do it in batches and did not do it earlier. Now again what they are checking is if the content of your CV is valid so not something you should worry about. This will not affect the evaluation post this point unless a significant discrepancy is uncovered whereas the application may get disqualified. Otherwise the evaluation will go as indicated on the website (100% MMI or Casper this year). Best of luck
  5. FYI: Waitlist movement varies by year for obvious reasons. However, for IP it usually is ballpark of 15-20+ spot movement in previous years. Last year ~24 people got in from the waitlist, the year before ~28. For OOP I don't remember but the movement is usually ~10-15 spots on average but can be more too. All things considered, this year for IP there are two campuses and that may change the movement of the waitlists, that is to be seen. Good luck!

  7. You cannot bring any material into the interviews.
  8. They can contact you pretty much up to the day of the interview. I personally was not on the waitlist but some people who were on the pre-interview waitlist last year were contacted a day or two before. It goes based on when someone who got an interview backs out and that can happen at any time.
  9. There is no final button. If you submitted all your documents (uploaded to Minerva or emailed for Workbook), you are all set to go. Your Casper will also pop up on its own as a received score once they get it. Good luck!
  10. In case you all were wondering, last year the med-p waitlist moved to spot 34. This year is the first year with two campuses (gatineau campus only opens in Fall of 2020) so you can expect that to have an effect but still it does move quite a bit. Just hold tight and best of luck!
  11. Your rank should be on Minerva if you look up your application. I'm assuming this is for medp, so for the campus it may also be written there on minerva together with your rank. The two campuses is a new thing so your best bet is to contact the admissions office directly if it is not on Minerva.
  12. I know this was asked previously but I was just wondering if anyone heard anything about the incoming med class Facebook group? I know in the past it was usually created in mid-late April. Would be nice to have discussions on there with all the incoming students.
