  1. Doesn’t look like they finished updating the site
  2. Congrats!! Just going off your previous posts, you were 7:18:56 right?
  3. You are 5X so there is still hope. I was 5X last year and didn’t get in, but last year the waitlist moved only 84 spots, the fewest in the past years. It was 93 or 94 for the two previous years. So had it moved that much last year, I think all the 5X would have gotten in. Don’t lose hope
  4. Honestly. There are so many ways to improve this process.
  5. That’s my worry too. Since they didn’t call they could have literally sent out all the offers through email and are now waiting till Wednesday to send out the second round. Hopefully that’s not the case and they split it in half or something.
  6. Everyone that posted that they received an offer from waitlist for English stream yesterday said they received an email and not a call.
  7. Yes you are right that would make sense. Because if they email everyone at once their phone lines would get absolutely bombarded lol. So let’s pray there is still some initial movement
  8. The weird thing about this year is that they seem to email the offers instead of calling. Technically, they can email all the offers out at once in one day. With calling, it probably takes longer so you would see movement over a few days.
  9. Congrats!! You sure that’s not when you received it?
  10. So we know the waitlist got until 7:18:4X. You are probably next on list
  11. Did you get in off waitlist or still waiting?
  12. Not sure. It depends how many calls they made today and how many people accept their waitlist offer.
  13. Since nobody from 7:19 got a call our theory is correct that it goes by timestamp.
  14. What was the latest timestamp that someone got a call today had? 7:18:4X?
  15. ^^^ And make sure it’s the email sent time not received time lol Best of luck to you all!
  16. Hmm that’s weird seeing that nobody else posted from 7:46 and a lot of people made accounts just to share. I guess we will find out in a weeks time
  17. Are you sure it was sent/created at 7:46 and not received at 7:46?
  18. Also, I checked the AFMC 2019 PDF and it shows that last year, 84 people declined their offer at uOttawa (English and French). 2017/2018 - 84 declined 2016/2017 - 93 declined 2015/2016 - 93 declined 2014/2015 - 88 declined. So let’s hope it’s a decent amount this year lol.
  19. If you are on gmail, click the three dots in the right of your email, then click show original source, and scroll down a bit to see sent time. Honestly, I do believe it is. I was in this position last year where everyone on the good waitlist was either 7:45 or 7:46. Nobody that had a 7:46 timestamp got in, and nearly everyone from the 7:45 got in. I was at the end of the 7:45 bin seconds wise, and I didn’t get in, so I believe it stopped pretty close to where I was on the list. One thing we can’t predict is how many people are placed in each minute timestamp. Last year it stopped at the end of 7:45, but this year there could be more people in the 7:19 than the 7:18 for example, and it may continue through it a bit. I don’t mean to crush anyone’s hopes, it isn’t 100% confirmed, so when people start getting called, we will get a better idea if they can share their gpa and seconds timestamp. Someone also asked about why there are some people who have 7:17. Those people all seem to be 7:17:5X so my speculation is that they are in the bin that Ottawa finished at when they sent the initial 116 offers. So what should happen on the 29th is those on 7:17 will hear first, then it will pass through 7:18 gradually, and hopefully into 7:19 if there is significant movement.
  20. Your email passes through different web servers to reach you and those can be located in different parts with different time zones.
  21. It’s time that the email was sent that matters, not received. I actually spoke with a lot of people who said they got their waitlist email at 7:20,7:21, etc, but they all actually had it sent either at 7:18 or 7:19.
