  1. I think the majority have been called I think they'll get through a decent chunk of the HWL today or all of the HWL people since they started yesterday afternoon, but I'm not sure
  2. Congratulations everyone! Im out of reactions but I’m so happy for everyone on the HWL. That must have been one stressful night once the HWL calls stopped going out yesterday, but glad to see it all worked out. Hopefully we get similar news for NWL I really appreciate everyone keeping us updated and coming back to post
  3. @CHG @Gaming2Much Oh ok that’s awesome, I was thinking it was either today or tomorrow but didn’t think they would get around to offers so fast!
  4. Only TWO people have said that they didn’t get their first choice so far, which is probably expected. Last year had people who didn’t get their first choice either i would be concerned if 15 or 20 people posted and said they all got Windsor when it wasn’t their first choice, which would be unlike any year on this forum I’m feeling nervous too, but I want to stay hopeful for all of us. Good news is that HWL will probably start hearing back tomorrow which is exciting! The waitlist will finally start moving edit: sorry this is in response to earlier comments on whether today’s situation is normal or not. I didn’t see the recent posts before this so my post may appear disjointed haha
  5. I’m so sorry you guys didn’t get your first choice. Hopefully that doesn’t take too much away from the fact that you are going to medical school in the fall, and you never know you might still get an London offer later in the summer or in June. I don’t want to plant false hope but you never know. I have my fingers crossed for you guys I definitely had a momentary freak out reading these replies and started downward spiraling (less than 38 seats ) but I’m trying to keep hope by reminding myself that this probably happens every year. More people are posting on this forum this year for western (65 people posted they were accepted versus last years 18) so we are probably just seeing more of the “process” this year as people post what’s happening with their specific application thats what I’m telling myself at least
  6. My prediction based on when waitlist offers have gone out in previous years is Thursday or Friday for high wait list Normal wait list has heard back starting on Friday if they sent out offers on Thursday. Otherwise NWL started hearing back the week after
  7. 163 members in the facebook group Does it usually get this high this fast? seems pretty early for that many members. It was 40-50 people less just a few days ago
  8. I found the part about his childhood and the description of his work ethic really interesting. Other than that, it was ok. I find him really interesting. He has such an offbeat personality in the interviews I've watched haha. I've already got a hold of your guys recommendations! Looking forward to giving them a read.

  10. Yea, I definitely feel conscious of every day going by .. I have been reading A LOT to pass the time. I've been finishing a book a day for the last couple weeks as I wait. It's the only thing that really distracts me from thinking about the wait list outside of hanging out with family or FaceTiming with friends. I've got my books lined up for the rest of May and June to help me with the wait haha. I was let go from both my jobs because of COVID19 so I have a lot of time on my hands. How are you spending your time (and everyone else)? I second this!
  11. I agree! I guess it swings the other way too, especially with SWOMEN applicants who might have gone with another Ontario/OOP offer, but choose Western to stay closer to home? My hope is that all these factors just cancel each other out in the end I wonder what happened last year that the WL went to Windsor so fast or is that something that happens every year?
  12. I saw all the replies and how long the Ottawa waitlist thread was getting and I'm not going to lie I was a bit jealous too I spent a small chunk of yesterday watching Modern Family on one half of my screen and going through old threads on the other half trying to figure out how long the high and normal WL is just to satisfy my own curiousity and I came up with similar numbers to you (this is after promising myself the night before that I wouldn't go on this forum for at least a week ). I want to think the HWL is 30-40 people just for my own sake, but I also get a feeling that it is closer to 50-60... still it feels risky to me that they would HWL that many people. Then again, I feel like a decent chunk of that original 50-60 removes themselves for other schools leaving behind 30-40 or so that actually then get offered an acceptance. Last year, I've noted 6 people got in off of NWL even though it seemed like there were not that many seats left since they offered Windsor to HWL pretty fast. Of course, not every applicant posts on here so there was probably more than 6 but I feel like there can't have been a lot more than that Also, I tried to divide up the total offers last years. They had 248 total offers last year so my guess is that its [original offers (171) + over offer (~40) + high WL (<30) + NWL(10)] and if they don't over-offer that much then that ~40 would get spread among the high and normal WL. Most of this I'm basing off of the size of the Windsor campus. This is specific for last year though What do you guys think? Disclaimer: I am speculating and posting to satisfy my own need for SOMETHING during this wait. It's just for fun and to get a conversation going. None of it is official, but its just something to talk about to pass the time
