Anyone get off the waitlist today? Do you think they’re waiting to send out offers til tomorrow or mostly Wednesday?

The waitlist email says that they'll notify the next person on the waitlist as soon as a spot becomes available. My impression was that emails would roll out on a continuous basis, but maybe it's semi-continuous and they send them out in batches. If that's the case, they're probably going to hold off until tomorrow or Wednesday. 

Just speculation though. I don't know if anyone has gotten off today, but it's possible. 

I second what uRme said. Also, consider this: 16 people self-reported to be on the waitlist, 4 people so far have been accepted off the waitlist (but none of those were from the original 16 mentioned earlier). So apparently there is a high predisposition to tell everybody that one was been accepted off the waitlist. That means that if there is any movement we are likely to see it, and the 4 offers so far only represent a small amount of movement. I suspect that tomorrow or the day after (or both) we will see a lot of movement, and then it will drop back down to a slow trickle.

Based on last year's thread there was a lot of movement on the day following the original deadline to accept & and then in about a week's time, which probably roughly corresponds to the next deadline.

Queens just got the first big batch of waitlist offers... everyone, brace yourselves O.o 

i think they might work a bit differently from our own little torture game - theirs has a specific set date while Mac does rolling offers no?

Their deadline response date for initial offers was yesterday as well. 

Was it? I always thought that queens was 1 day earlier then the rest of the ontario schools. Pretty sure tomorrow is the day to be freaking out!

According to the Queen's WL thread 

Oh yeah, Queens' deadline was yesterday. Thought you meant that mac's deadline was yesterday as well.

According to some people posting on Queen's thread, people accepted in wave two for Mac have two weeks to accept their offer :) And, in that same thread, it seems that someone did end up getting an offer yesterday.

So, out of curiosity (and an excess of free time) I just checked to see how the OPs of McMaster's previous "waitlist party" threads fared.

In each of these cases, the OP of the waitlist thread was accepted off of the waitlist. That gives me hope :P

Good luck to us all tomorrow.

For the rest of us; do you all think that the majority/big wave has gone out yet? Hopefully not...

I doubt it, in previous years the big movements seemed to mostly be around midday or early afternoon. Also there are enough of us that we would have more than just one person posting.

Agreed. Most of the second wave offers will probably go out tomorrow and maybe into Thursday :)

Wow, Mac is pretty fast at processing declined offers and pulling people off the WL. Looks like a portion of the supposed tomorrow's wave was sent out tonight.  Congrats to those who've heard good news & best of luck to the rest of us!

Just received the email offer off of the waitlist a few hours ago. I replied to the main thread with some more information. Good luck to everyone! I hope to see you in August!
