When are we expected to hear back? Also, do you receive your application score as well?

You do not receive your application score when they send out interview invites. The only time you see your score is if you end up being waitlisted or rejected when decision letters come out.

Probably in 3 weeks. I’m an OOP applicant and Dalhousie is my top choice. Definitely my chances are slim, but I’m still hopeful!  

I'm OOP too and Dal is my top choice as well! We should link up!!! send me a PM :)

At least I have Dalhousie to look forward to since I won't hear anything from Ontario schools until all the way in late January

Wow! You've applied to so many schools! That's very impressive :) Hope you get invited to all of them, and eventually get multiple offers! :)

I'm OOP , Dal tbh not my first choice ( unless you're part of the admissions team then please excuse that typo) I struggled with the why dal essay in terms of showing connections with the region - for the simple reason that I don't have any - but then neither do the OOP I know who got in . I've heard they are looking for people who have ties /connections to the area ..think that's true?

From what I have seen in past cycles, there are people with times and those with zero ties who get an interview

I do agree, however, that having ties will make your application much, much stronger because past application cycles people have mentioned that the maritime connection essay plays the strongest role for interview invites – I would take this information with a grain of salt because you never know how things work internally

I hope this helps! :)
