    Well the email we all didn't want has arrived!

    It says movement this year was only 8 seats, which is a bit confusing since the first update stated that there were 42 people remaining on the waitlist (and we started with 52). Maybe they aren't counting those who removed themselves from the waitlist? Not sure. Either way, obviously it's not a great feeling, but at least we have some closure. 

    Yeah, they took 8 people off the waitlist but the others removed themselves from the waitlist and decreased the overall waitlisted number! 

    Here is to get motivated to up our application and interview game! See you next year!

    Hey guys, I learned some information this week about why we haven't heard anything. I am a previous Lakehead student and know some current NOSM students and have worked on campus as well. One of my previous co-workers let me know that unfortunately one of the NOSM Admissions Officers passed away unexpectedly last weekend. I imagine this is why they are closed and we have not received an update. I know NOSM Thunder Bay is pretty small, and I'm sure the loss of this staff member has shaken the NOSM community greatly :( 

    Wow!!! Thanks for the update and I’m so sad to hear of this. You know, it’s so important to always be patient and understand that there are unprecedented circumstances that can occur! If 2020 has taught us anything...it’s that!

    Not feeling super hopeful at this point knowing how close it was to being filled once we got the last update! I guess we will see if we get something new today! How are you feeling?

    Yeah the hopeful feeling definitely came crashing down last Tuesday! But where is the email today??? Anyone get it?

    Hey fellow purgatory members... I hope you all have had a better last few days.
    I still don't know if I'm receiving all correspondence from NOSM, so I just wanted to make sure... Does anyone know if those final two candidates accepted or declined their offers (from NOSM)?  In other words, are some of us still on "life support"?

    I hope you all are holding up alright! I have not received any emails yet! I wonder if we still have a fighting chance. The days after Tuesday have been much better, starting to settle in with and learning to appreciate the great blessings in life regardless of NOSM acceptance!

    I am also on the waitlist, but I haven't yet received any updates.  Can someone tell me what it says?  Thank you!

    Dear Applicant,


    The following movement has occurred on the waitlist for the Entering Class of 2020:


    The NOSM class of Fall 2020 has 62 confirmed learners. We are currently awaiting responses from the two remaining offers. If these two offers are accepted the class will be full.


    42 applicants are remaining on the waitlist.


    You will receive another update in one week or sooner if the class reaches 64 confirmed learners.

  6. Wow what a devastating email. I straight bawled for a while. Only 10 off the waitlist whole other years had 16-20? What a year to be on the waitlist. Really wonder what spot I was in. its such a sad feeling to be thinking of the whole application process again! Has anyone tried to get the 30 consultation thing? How was it?
