  1. People get in until end of August and things are delayed cause of covid, I wouldn’t give up just yet. But I wouldn’t expect anything either.
  2. This is confusing as 124-116 means that they only added 8 spots when they were supposed to add 12 to make a total of 16 overall. But the 79, (assuming I’m remembering correctly) reflects 11 new spots added (79-68). The supernumerary position thing also gets confusing here as if they supposedly already had unlimited spots for affirmative action applicants why did they dedicate the new spots to the affirmative action applicants and rural Nova Scotians? Yes, I think this is a good thing, but at the same time it doesn’t make sense. And if the 16 spots are now for affirmative action applicants why the continuing fluctuating numbers from what they are supposedly supposed to have?
  3. They definitely could find 16 people from rural Nova Scotia in the applicant pool, Nova Scotia has a high rural population so I don’t think filling the seats is an issue. And even if they didn’t I don’t see why they would leave any government funded seats unfilled. I’m suspecting they may have delayed adding them due to COVID concerns with class size or just haven’t updated the max seats on dalonline. There should be 130 seats there to reflect the new class size.
  4. Oh dal med LOL. Someone call Scooby doo and the gang
  5. It doesn’t make sense that the class size still stays 120 when they were supposed to add 16 new seats in total? https://www.google.ca/amp/s/www.cbc.ca/amp/1.5240073 ...unless they didn’t do it...
  6. Likely there are 19 spots from all OOP, NB and NS rn. It’s hard to tell what’s going on there though, like do accepted people who are unsure even register for classes?
  7. There are 12 more spots this year than last year since they added 4 spots last year in the summer.
  8. Just speculating here, but the other factors are probably based on class composition e.g. male to female ratio and diversity if they even care past African Nova Scotians and Indigenous folks who knows. And I’m sorry about the notification giving you hope LOL. Was just trying to revive this thread just in case anyone has any updates.
  9. Anyone else worried that we haven’t received any official waitlist confirmation yet this year?
  10. Wait, what I'm graduated, but I took a couple of 1st year courses in my 3 and 4th years? Does that mean they'll calculate gpa differently this time for everyone I don't understand?
  11. Their website had the wrong thing written on it for a whole application cycle.
  12. Okay, but the thing is they never changed it apparently. Dr. Rideout said that choosing what degree you use for GPA calculation and that determining which undergrad degree counts was always a rule. So why wasn't that on the website? And there was a medical student who said the rule changed so even the students were confused? And their website changed in late 2018 to make it seem like it was a new requirement that you have to finish any degree in progress. And then they told people applying different things which caused some people to not apply at all. And now they've updated their website so the undergraduate part finally makes sense, but the graduate part is still confusing like maybe it's a typo because wth an undergraduate degree can't be a graduate degree. We shouldn't be this confused is all I'm saying. Policies should be clear that's all.
  13. Exactly they just don't wanna deal with the issues created with what was previously written. Why didn't they say on their website specifically you can pick and choose what degree you submit and you have to finish that degree not just "if you are enrolled in a degree at the time of application." Or why didn't their website talk specifically about second undergraduate degrees. And why doesn't it talk about thesis versus non-thesis based masters. Why would you leave applicants confused?
