    To update those on the waitlist - we've been told that the class list for this year is "more or less finalized". Best of luck to everyone next cycle!

    I'm still waitlisted and have not received any emails saying the class has been filled.

    Also, Mac announced that they WILL be increasing the number of interviews for the next cycle.
    Would also not surprise me if they interview ~700 for 203 spots next year. Oh well, our odds are still better than Queen's post-interview chances. :/

    Deadline to accept for me was June 14. So they may be coming out today or tomorrow.

    Here's hoping there's some good movement this week. Contacted admissions and they said waitlist is still moving so it isn't over yet!

    I haven't revisited any Mac-related forums since May 12, but I wanted to come back to see how much the waitlist moved. Like many of you, I was really frustrated when learning about Mac's lottery selection, but I still think that their medical program is great and will produce terrific doctors. I was fortunate enough to receive an offer to the medical school in my home province, so I won't be at Mac, but I wanted to share what I think about the current state of waitlist movement.
    Like some other users above, I also think that the Mac waitlist did not move as much this year. I can't confirm anything, but based on the 2023 Mac Med Facebook group, about 50-60 people have joined since May 26 (a day before the first large wave of waitlist acceptances). While I know that the school stated that they can offer guaranteed interviews next year to unaccepted applicants since most people off the WL either get an offer to Mac or another school, I don't think this trend is true this year. First, only 70-76% of the top 100 get an offer of admission, so those are 30 applicants that are automatically accepted who would have done quite below average on the MMI (enough to offset a combination of high GPA + CARS). It is very possible that these same applicants may have gotten interviews at other schools because of their stats, but they would not have performed well at those interviews either. Thus, Mac is their only offer, and they automatically get a spot which they have to accept.
    Now for the rest of the Mac spots, I personally know a few people who honestly would not have performed well in the MMI but who received a spot from the lottery. That doesn't mean that they will be poor physicians, but I know that they are not strong at interviews. They received an offer from Mac immediately off the lottery or off the waitlist, and they were rejected from other schools they interviewed at (or they only had a Mac interview). Because of these two ways in which applicants who would have underperformed at the MMI have now received offers to Mac that they must accept, the waitlist movement was lower this year.
    I do think that the lottery selection process screwed over several people, and I really feel for all of you. You have the right to feel upset and frustrated from this process. Try to channel this frustration into motivation that pushes you to be the best you can be for next year's interview. Show Mac what they are missing out on.
    Again, I think Mac is a great school that produces terrific doctors, but I think the lottery selection was the wrong way to go.

    I just got an offer for the Hamilton campus!!! Timestamp: 14:45
    Edit: I just want to say that I wish all of you the absolute best of luck! We were definitely dealt a tough hand this year, but there is still so much positivity on this forum and I believe so much in you all! (I was a little too in shock to write anything more than what I had written before at the time, sorry)

    Hi guys, 
    I emailed Wendy. Here’s the response I got: 
    “our class is very close to full.  Once it is, I will send out a message to all applicants on the waitlist to let them know.”
    Don’t lose hope everyone, we’ll get em next year.

    Honestly there's a bunch of people in our fb chat, but excluding for people that should not be there, I anticipate there is still a good amount of waitlist offers left. Have hope everyone!

    I've been following this thread for a long time and I'm lowkey rooting for OP to get in lol. I'm in the same situation with Mac and Queens waitlists, but the OP prophecy has to live on, and OP has both waitlist threads on lock.

    Still no news? Waitlist movement went into mid-late June last year but the lack of posts is concerning!

    You can assume their still working their way down the list until you get the email saying the class is full. Applicants who post here are a ?small minority.
