Do you know which forums, for what years, you read this for? I read the 2018/2019 thread and I think the first offers were sent after the 2 week mark 

Unfortunately no, was a late night PM101 binge so I can't recall but I went all the way back to 2017 so maybe I saw it there :lol:

yes ! the GPA seems to follow, except for appledanish... maybe he is at the end of a bin ? 

aaaaah I have an hypothesis... I'll write in in french since I am more fluent and it's about french WL !

Ils ont placé les étudiants en ordre séquentiel entrevue+GPA, et ont pris les 40 premiers puis ceux qui suivent dans la liste sont dans la liste d'attente. Il est possible que appledanish était le 41ième. Il commencerait donc la liste d'attente... Ça expliquerait pourquoi son GPA suit pas la trend... Il serait à la fin de sa «bin» (les autres ayant déjà été acceptés :huh:)...

 

Bref, ça expliquerait ce glitch dans l'ordre des GPA sur la liste excel. Faudrait quand même plus de données pour les francophones...  :o

Hi everyone!

Here is the updated spreadsheet! Also thanks to @klj.klnmk,mn for your version too, I think it's nice to have it sorted into bins! I got neurotic and updated this with stats from last year... although I didn't go looking too deep so I apologize for the lack of info! But it looks like we have way more data this year already!

I'll update the spreadsheet as we get more information/if there are significant changes. If you're a lurker please feel free to update your info to give us all a better idea of how this waitlist is working :) also if I messed anything up, please let me know I'll fix it. Also congrats to @DrOtter!!! I hope we all get to experience what you did today!!

Not even a minute between appledanish and FourthTimesTheCharm... :huh: I am overanalyzing everything. We need more data ! 


Vous pouvez m'envoyer des messages privés si vous êtes plus à l'aise (je comprend !), je vous ajouterai au fichier Excel ! :)

I’ll update you guys if I hear anything!! Ça ferait vraiment du sens comme théorie par exemple! (Je suis encore tellement surprise qu’ils m’ont donner une entrevue avec un GPA tellement proche du cutoff haha) Et sur le côté anglophone, la théorie des temps semble faire du sens!!

Good luck everyone!! Thanks @DrHopes for the excel!!

do we think an email is sent out every second? Trying to figure out if i should give up hope for ottawa. 

No, as I noted earlier, it doesn't make logical sense. I wouldn't read too much into time differences (except that they seem to be a marker of your GPA relative to people before/after you in your bin).

If they sent a waitlist email every second they'd be up to 240 people by 7:40, so the gaps may not mean much for guessing how many people are not shown on the spreadsheet.

Do we think the next wave will go out on Monday?

Monday is a Stat, I doubt it.

There's probably something to that theory, but the issue is that in between the first (Seconds given) timestamp and last good waitlist one (that I saw quickly eyeballing it) is 589 seconds. If they sent one waitlist email a second they would have good waitlisted more people than they interviewed. 

Add in the way the GPA scale restarts at around 7:41:30, 7:45, and 7:46 + an offer to the top already, and it looks like the same pattern as past years, but with significantly more data in the thread making it easier to visualize and a broader time range.

i wonder why they need a good  waitlist of like 300 people. If in previous years the most we see get off the waitlist is 90 people then even like a good wait list of 150 seems large and 200 people seem excessive.

I think it’s because a lot of people remove themselves from the waitlist if they received other offers, which explains why the good waitlist seems quite big.

Did anyone here apply to SAI? When I emailed them about how selection/waitlist works for those who applied to SAI, they said that we are basically placed into 2 waitlists. When the SAI fills up, then we move onto the other general waitlist. Just wondering what happens when someone from SAI declines their offer.

I applied to SAI
