Waitlist post-interview 2019 discussion

Recommended Posts

I kept track of the waitlist movement for last year's cycle (2018 admissions). If I remember correctly, the waitlist went to #14 in 2017. 

 

Next potential offer…

April 18th: 5

April 30th: 6

May 9th: 9

May 17th: 10

May 18th: 12

May 23rd: 14

May 31st: 15

June 1st: 23

June 7th: 24

June 27th: 25

July 6th: 26

July 31st: 27

August 6th: 28

 

Good luck to everyone on the list. I know how you feel but just know that it's not over until it's over. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

Last year was really unusually high! Not trying to stamp on anybody's dreams, but from what I remember it can basically go anywhere from ~5 to ~25 most years, with higher than that being possible but unlikely. Still, you never know!

Last year it said "Next potential offer to #10". I don't know if it moved to number 10 as I took myself off the waitlist.

Thanks :) just to clarify - at that point offer 10 had not yet been made?

Yea at that point the most recent offer had gone to number 9. I did not receive an offer before I took myself off the waitlist. I can't speak to what happened to the applicants after #10 as I stopped following McGill's website.

Guys, I am seriously thinking about deferring my admission offer to finish my PhD. I'm an IP applicant, so the waitlist should at least move 1 up! Good luck to all of you, maybe the waitlist will move like crazy again this year!

WL hasn’t moved yet. Should start moving next week since the deadline for the deposit is Monday I believe. 

Should move some more early May as Ottawa release their admission offers then mid May as French school do the same :)

Does our number on Minerva change each time?

My number hasn't changed. Yours? I don't know if it will. Cause it would get confusing if "Next potential offer to #2" but the original #2 becomes #1 after the first waitlist offer. Someone correct me if I'm wrong please. Cause I'd really like to know too.

the minerva number doesnt usually change. You're expected to know based off of the waitlist offers on their website!

Awesome, thanks. That does make more sense.

Looks like the waitlist for IP is moving a lot slower this year compared to last year :(

Hopefully we'll see some movement in May when Toronto, Ottawa and UdeM release their answer.
