Pretty sure that's a troll because my last year's app says "Regrets, No Interview" not "Regrets, Not Interviewed".

Last year's app also has it in a custom styled table

I just checked, and you're right. My last year's rejection was in a custom styled table with a date:

Last year the rejections went around around 5. I remember being in your shoes during finals last December trying to keep my heart from exploding, now I'm sullenly studying away for UBC med finals. My heart is with y'all, whatever news you may or may not hear today doesn't define you and shouldn't negatively impact your dream of becoming a physician ^_^

 I can echo this! Don’t let today define you!

Could you imagine if they send regrets tomorrow instead of today? Agony and suffering would accumulate another 24 hours...

That would be the worse... but I doubt it.  Next 45 mins is the critical time zone.  Hang in there guys!!  We're all in this together

Wow, just realized something.  If you guys look at the stats, there is a note regarding total number of applicants invited to interview.  It says "Subject to change".  Can this potentially explain why some of @Poloma's friends received regrets on Thursday?  Look at the image attached.

Potentially, not everyone who receives an invite chooses to signup or people procrastinate to the last minute and not all slots become filled. That may be me reading too much into it because it seems odd to have a waitlist for an interview. I know that is only true in the US for a definitive fact.

Yeah I thought about that too, but technically this is the total number of people who have been "invited" as in the adcom's decision of sending an invite to someone or not.  What do you think?

Subject to change just means it isn't crystallized for 100% certainty. Just like life and, ironically, our current psychological state. They may rescind applicants too should they find criminal records or highly important but unreported information. That is another possibility.
