Thanks for starting the thread. Gonna be a long summer haha.  I've looked at past years (a link from another thread) and there are 49-60 declined offers per year.  How many of those are OOP or IP they don't say.

Break a legend everyone.  We're still in the game!

Thanks for the thread. Also an IP waitlisted. Calgary didn't work out today :(, so this is the only bit of hope left. 

I'm thinking U of A will send waitlist offers soon as more and more medschools release their decisions.

Im in the exact same boat as you. Hopefully it works out for both of us!

Last year they sent out decisions on a Monday and people were posting waitlist offers as soon as Thursday. Hopefully it starts rolling that quickly this year too. 

I also have seen waitlist offers on this forum as late as June and some (unposted) friends were offered as late as 1 week before classes begin.

This was posted to the U of C blog a little while ago: 

Total applications submitted: 1721
Invited to interview: 579
Total new “seats” available: 128-30
Total offers sent out May 12, 2020: 170
Total waitlist letters sent May 12, 2020: 148
TOTAL ACCEPTED May 12, 2020 7 pm: 35

Please do not ask for a further breakdown beyond this.

Last year we sent out a total of 276 offers to reach our target number of 139. So, yes, there are years we go deep into the waitlist but every year is different.

 . . . 

I am not sure if this is anything like U of A's situation but it is nice to see some numbers! I am holding out hope for all of us!

I imagine everyone on the waitlist got the notification about options for tuition deposit payments?

Hey where do you see the notification about tuition deposit payment options? I’m on the waitlist but I don’t see anything in my official waitlist letter

It’s in the secondary app where they post all of the notifications.

You mean the message about "If you currently have financial stressors that may impact your ability to pay your tuition deposit..."? Because I am on the waitlist, and all I see is the waitlist letter and the FAQ document.

Yes. Notices, not documents.

Same here! But I feel like any real movement will take at at least a week.

for those sending in transcripts, just wondering what postal code did you put? The letter said T6G2EI but I'm not sure if it's correct as it's different from the website. thanks in advance!!

Oh good eye, I didn't even notice that! I sent it to the address on the website because I copied the address for previous transcript. But Im really not sure.
