So how far into the waitlist do people assume they will go? At least 100 or do you think more? 

Recent years they have had to send out at least 100 more offers. 

2014: 116 more offers

2015: 126 more offers

2016: 123 more offers

2017: 114 more offers

2018: 126 more offers

Not sure how the lottery and COVID will change things

Does anyone know how many people are in this years facebook group? Maybe that will give some insight into how many people have accepted?

The class for class of 2023 is currently 483 people. 

Don't think we be able to tell much from that, for reference class of 2022 is 560 and class of 2021 is 559 and class of 2020 is 587

Many upper years 2022s, 2021s, 2020s are in the main group and the upper years for each regional campus are in the regional campus groups as well. The best gauge for WL movement still remains members like you all contributing when you get the email from Wendy

Just putting this here again if anyone hasn't filled it out but would like to contribute :)

I know Waitlisters are the most active group of applicants post-interview on this forum but the fact that 50 responded is insane

I genuinely think there are 300 people on the waitlist, while only about 50 got rejected

Yea assuming Mac didn't lie about rejecting applicants (and I cant see why they would), 100 - 300 - 50 (A-WL-R) split is the most realistic.

Assuming no over-offering initially and traditional WL movement of ~100, roughly 1/3 of waitlisters will make it off

I will be accepting my uOttawa offer over Mac, hope this gives some hope to those on the waitlist! Although I declined Mac partially due to worries about COVID, it is still a great school and I'm sure I would have loved my time there, so don't feel discouraged to anyone who has Mac as their only offer :)

It doesn't matter what they ranked, when they get a WL offer, they get the campus that the person who's spot they got, had received.  Once you're on on WL, your rankings don't matter.
