I’d email back informing them that you didn’t get an email, and would like to know the status. 

I emailed earlier today but haven’t heard back yet.

Is it even possible to send an acceptance the week of the interviews?? 
Are the online ones still on and are they panel format or MPI? 

Honestly could be that our Rs were "lost in the mail" lol... I cant imagine them giving less than a week's notice for interviews. If they do, well that's very dumb

Yeah I agree. It’s so stressful though that they haven’t sent them out, I wish they would just tell us either way instead of waiting so close to the dates especially with everything happening. Who can even practice these last few weeks with all the changes and stress.

I've heard of someone getting an invite 3 days before the U of T interview a couple years ago. But that was only one case and I heard it from a friend of a friend so not 100% sure if it was a true story.

Wow! Really. I wonder if they’ll do that this year or not though with COVID.

Could there have  been a last minute cancelation? Hard to imagine they are aiming for that kind of short notice.

I agree. I think that would be pretty unfair for those students, especially given people’s personal situations right now as well.

Not quite. I had a degree in chemistry prior to applying to pharmacy school (Both degrees from the US). OMSAS for some reason does not acknowledge the professional degree in the gpa calculation hence the reason for the academic explanation essay.
