seriously though I'm waiting on updates from Mac and I'm going insane. I was hoping they'd update us today and since nothing has happened yet, I'm devastated!!! I've been refreshing my email and this forum like every 20 mins for the entire day

If you were not admitted, you did not know if you were waitlisted or rejected until the am when schools email. Sometime between 8-10am

Last year I got my rejection at midnight as well - it showed as a red X on OMSAS.

I didn't see an indictor of rejection last year on OMSAS. I only knew I was rejected when I got the email in the morning.

Gotta say, the waitlist info is really encouraging. But this is assuming I would even be on the waitlist and not just straight up rejected based on their new criteria lmao :unsure:

Yeah that graph gives me hope lol...

from 2015-2019 they send out about 300+ offers since 100+ decline... 

So if there is 550 interviews, and 300 offers made you could assume you have a 50-55% chance.

I also wonder if this year there will be even more waitlist movement since they canceled the interviews, people might have a stronger impression of  schools they got to visit.

How does waitlist chance look at Ottawa based on the graphs (if you've read into it). If not, I'll just wait till next week lol

Literally having anxiety every day. Only had one interview, Ottawa and not even sure how I feel at this point lol 

same, keep going over my answers. 

I had a nightmare last night I redid my ottawa interview . Walked into the room and turns out  Voldemort was there to interview me (I watch harry potter before I went to bed...). I didn't know what to do in the interview haha. Like do I just go along with it, perhaps it was a trick and they want to see how I react or do I run like crazy. 

Just imagine having the dark lord ask you why you want to go into medicine. 

Either way I won't be watching Harry Potter again until after May 12

wrt more or less waitlist movement this year - it could be either way in my mind. There could be way more than normal movement because of what you said, or even less than normal because there's the possibility of travel restrictions and online classes that people maybe would end up not selecting other offers.

They don't have it by english and french stream but looking at the graph it says last year. They sent out 244 offers for 156 spots. 

I don't know how many interview at ottawa.

So I guess you could say last year people had a ~42% chance then 

Wow that's kind of crazy compared to Mac where it's consistently like ~60% of interviewees get an offer. I guess the 3 year program is really not that popular
