@pittstealers47 did you hear back yet? I still haven't.

I also haven't heard back. Could this mean a waitlist? In previous years, I believe waitlisted interviewees were also initially rejected but this year things could be different :/

This is very surprising and amazing stats, I have no idea how you didn't get an invite.

Wouldn’t say that based just off on what’s here. Queens, like every other school, has their own way of marking applications. Just gotta make sure that every part of the application is super strong. Can’t say more than that.

It's possible, but it is only a small fraction of us left behind. 

Maybe.. but maybe not. Sit tight my friend, the answer will come soon.

Status : Rejection (MD)

Time: 12:36

Location: IP

MCAT: 127/128/129/129 (513)

GPA: 3.79 (wGPA 3.9+) 

Year: Graduated 2017

Ecs: extensive with healthcare employment in a variety of care settings (medicine, oncology, surgical, emergency, rehab, home care, public health harm reduction + school health), worked throughout undergrad, small amount of tutoring younger-year students through my faculty while in university, some research (no publications), volunteering with children and patients in high school and undergrad (1000s of hours), interesting extracurriculars (soccer, barbering, automobile club). Nearly all commitments are long-term (spanning many years) with at least a few hundred hours.

 

Shame since the most improved part of my application was the way I did my sketch. It was seriously overhauled from previous years to incorporate those canmeds criteria.
