Yes there is but they don't send a different rejection email. Whether you're next on rank list or last, everyone got the same rejection email

How come some people are saying they didn’t get an email at all? Wouldn’t it make sense that those that didn’t = on the waitlist? Maybe it’s different from last year?

If you didn't get an email... you should email them. There is no reason for them to not email you, waitlist or not

Wait, so if you recieved a rejection notice, you might still get another e-mail later saying a place opened up and there is now room for interviews?

Yes. That's what it was like last year. No indication whatsoever of a wait list

Yeah and because of Queens' policy of no accomodations for interviews we may see offers as soon as the deadline to sign up for an interview (tomorrow)

So if we hear nothing by tomorrow evening, that is it? No interview to Queen's?

Result: Regrets

Time Stamp: 8:59 AM

wGPA/cGPA:

wGPA is 3.94

cGPA is 3.92

Year: 5th year

MCAT: 516 (129/129/128/130)

Regrets from Ottawa and McMaster also causing some pain and I begin to wonder what to do next to make my application stronger (like writing the MCAT again or doing full time research next year).

Did you apply to UofT or Mac? your cGPA n Mcat are really good

Has anyone received interviews off the waitlist? 

Just received one today, actually. Very surreal. A little stressed with the amount of time I have left to prepare, though. :X The only available date they had was March 2nd and this is going to be my first interview!!

Hi everyone,

I just got an interview off the waitlist which is super exciting! The only catch is that Queen's offered me an interview on Saturday March 2nd and I observe the Sabbath (and therefore it's super tricky for me attend). They don't seem to be willing to accommodate me for this. I know this is a super unconventional question, but I was wondering if anyone would be willing to switch their Sunday slot for my Saturday slot. Queen's implied that they would honour this. Please consider helping a brother out and let me know... I'd be forever grateful!!!! Thank you!

Just got a call this morning (7am in BC, RIP time zones) asking me to come in for an interview! Blessed :D My heart sank after the rejection letter but that hope has officially been rekindled!

 

Now to figure out how to prep for this thing with only 10 days of notice...

Do you mind posting your stats for us applying next year? Especially your mcat score, would be really nice!

Cumulative GPA: 3.8ish

Last two years GPA: 3.9ish (UBC does percentages and Im not too confident on my conversion accuracy...)

MCAT: 132/130/131/128 (RIP psych :( feeling okay on the other sections though) = 521

ECs: decent amount of research exp, some posters presentations, minimal awards, generic pre-med activities (hospital stuff), some personal hobbies (dancing). Overall feeling pretty middle of pack considering everything I've read on forums.

Geography = OOP

 

Hope that helps!
