Invite/Rejection: Rejection 
Time Stamp: 1:23 PM
Location: IP
Stream: English
wGPA: 3.95
Current year: 4th year undergrad
ECs: Diverse and fun things. Lots of research (mostly QI, but some wet lab), teaching assistant, NSERC, own a small business that was awarded city funding, lots of volunteer work I am passionate about, many uni clubs (w/ leadership positions), many awards, other things as well.

Casper: Despite fast typing speed, I was cut off a couple times because of the time constraint; that one early scenario froze me up. I guess I didn't do good enough. Remember to practice thinking fast along with typing fast :     )

Just keep swimming folks, good luck to all those who got invites!

Ottawa if you're reading: y u no lik me

Has anyone not heard back yet...? I still haven't gotten anything. I feel like the latest time stamp was around 3pm so have they stopped sending emails already?

Did you check your junk email?

We just respond back by directly replying to the invitation email right?

I didn't respond to the email, I just composed a new one to the same address... there was an automatic response saying they're out of the office until Jan 27

does the school have an IP preference?

I believe the IP GPA cut-off is like 0.05 (or less) lower than that of OOP. But Ottawa does not have any specific quotas for interview invitations like McMaster does. So it's pretty inconsequential.

Casper: went just as well as the previous time 

Good luck to everyone! To those who didn't get interviewed: never give up if that's your dream. Odds were never in my favour until I finished my 2nd undergraduate degree. I'm finally getting an interview at Ottawa after reaching my 8th year of university training. Just getting that interview is such an honour. :)
