McMaster Waitlist Party 2020

Recommended Posts

Just now, Weluvmedicine said:

If I accept my offer of admission off the waitlist does that mean I have accepted/enrolled at McMaster? I would like to wait and see for queens...

If you accept, then yes, you will be off the list for Queens.

Congratulations to both of you!!! Such exciting news. Where on your list did you rank the campuses that you got offers at?

I ranked Hamilton, Niagara, Waterloo. I got off the waitlist to Niagara. But, like someone said I don’t think your ranking matters once you’re on the waitlist! You just go wherever someone declined.

Did you decline right away? I'm wondering if the Niagara offer then cascaded to Weluvmed.

I think the nature of the WL is that people will probably get more regional campus offers off the WL, since if between regional and another offer, people may be less inclined to take the regional campus over another offer.

I got an email offer as well - and I will be accepting! (Although I will try to defer to complete my PhD, so that might open up a spot again!)

Congratulations! What campus were you offered and when did you get the email?

So I really think the waitlist timestamp is alphabetical order for your last name but I noticed that anon31 and Weluvmedicine both got their waitlist email at 8:14 AM (which is relatively earlier than the others). So it could mean something unless both of their last names are earlier in the alphabet.

McMaster in prev threads has been alphabetical, what's the latestt time someone got an email? I don't remember it to be very late.

     1c) Waterloo campus: 3

     1d) Unknown campus: 9

 

2) There are 7 people who have received an offer but are unsure if they are accepting yet either because they have been WL elsewhere and want to wait for those results or because they have multiple acceptances

     2a) Hamilton campus: 2

     2b) Niagara campus: 1

     2c) Waterloo campus: 0

     2d) Unknown campus: 4

I was offered a spot off the waitlist today for the Waterloo campus! I am giving myself a few days to think about it before making a decision as I have other OOP schools to consider. 

To address some things others have brought up on here: 

- I received my original waitlist email at 8:18am EST on May 12 and my name is near the end of the alphabet

- I ranked Waterloo second

- I have until June 3 to respond

I'll let you guys know if I decide to decline. Best of luck to you all!
