The invite interview used MailChimp (I'm not sure what the rejections used), which from my comms experience, can be finicky and lose addresses. Its possible they just missed you while uploading names and emails. 

I would call them (if they pick up).

Also worth noting that emails sent using MailChimp are known to get caught in spam filters, especially if you are using a school's or other institution's email address (emails might not even make their way into your inbox or junk folder). Maybe check if you can access these emails somehow.

To those still waiting: I sent Queen's an email today and they said that the applicants who applied through the MD/PhD stream will hear back about their MD invitation status today (Feb 4). If you didn't apply to MD/PhD and still haven't received an email, then I have no idea why, sorry! 

Edit: Regrets @ Jan 4, 2:23 PM

so apparently the interview offers/rejects have been sent out but for some reason some people (myself included) haven't received the email. So you have to call them and some lady will fix it.

Have you been able to get through? The number goes straight to voicemail.

yeah me too. I haven't been able to reach them as well

 

You actually just have to keep calling. But when I finally got through around 4:15 pm, the admin person told me to follow-up by email afterwards if required as she won't be answering the phones any longer today. :/

Yeah, regrets. It turned out my mail server was blocking the email but on Queen's end it appeared that I had received it.

Status: Invite

Time Stamp: Feb 3rd, 12:17pm EST (my birthday!) 

Location: IP

Stream: English MD

MCAT: 513 (125/130/129/130)

cGPA/2yr GPA: 3.52/3.75

Current year: UG Completed

ECs: Basically zero research, very little hospital experience, but lots of animal welfare related volunteering, two full time jobs post undergrad (one in a lab, one for the government), thousands of hours as a martial arts instructor. Honestly thought I was pretty average here but I guess not?! 

 

Best birthday present either. I was honestly stunned to even get an interview, and I'm so grateful for this opportunity. Best of luck to all the other interviewees!

@pittstealers47 @insidecat4 I had trouble too. I found mine not under spam, but the "Promotions" category of my inbox. And it was a regrets for me unfortunately. All emails have been sent out, they said.
