Accepted/Rejected/Waitlisted??? (for current applicants)

Recommended Posts

Accepted!!!

Time-Stamp: 7:51 AM

wGPA: 3.93 (same as cGPA)

Stream: English

Geography: IP

Current Year: Just graduated

Interview: Thought it went terrible actually. I thought I stumbled on a few questions and came across as flustered more than once, so much that I'd cringe whenever thinking of interview day. I thought it would be a sure rejection. I even almost forgot to shake hands at the end, starting to turn for the door before one of the interviewers abruptly stuck her hand out to remind me. Just goes to show that a couple awkward moments don't make or break you!

 

On wait list at Mac which is my top choice, so I'm not sure whether or not I'll be accepting yet. I couldn't be happier, congrats to everyone else who got an acceptance!

ACCEPTED!!!!

Time stamp: 7:44am

GPA: 3.99

Stream:English

Geography: IP

Current year: Graduated UG in October 2015

Interview: I think it went really well. My interviewers were really nice and we seemed to vibe really well. Ended with them saying they wished they had more time with me. But you never really know - I thought there were some things that maybe I could have answered better. 

 

So unbelievably excited as Ottawa is my first choice and my dream school!!!!

Wait list - Bad

Time-stamp: 9:02 AM (Atlantic)

GPA: 3.99

Stream: English

Geography: OOP

EC: cancer drug synthesis/research, 5 years global health and development volunteering, 4 years working with children with disabilities, 4 years student government, research assistant for neurosurgeon, northern rural telemedicine research, competitive sports for whole life, etc.

I'm assuming it's almost impossible to get in off the bad wait list?

Result: Accepted

Time Stamp: 7:50 am

GPA: 3.94

Stream: English

Geography: IP

EC: Quite varied. Several long term sports, volunteering with very vulnerable populations, operate my own business + several other long term employment positions. Almost no research experience.

Current year: 4th yr undergrad

Interview: Thought it went poorly and thought it was my worst one. The entire time the main interviewer kept giving me a look of "I can't believe he just said that" every time I would give an answer. 

 

Will likely be declining in favour of UofT

I only found this forum today..

 

WL-good : update: accepted 10ish am may 26

Stream: English

Gpa: 3.93

Year: 3rd year UG

 

Interview: I think the community member and dr liked me a lot, but the med student didn't. Could've answered some things better, but overall I think it went okay. A couple questions where I know I gave earth shatteringly amazing answers(lol) or so I thought... A couple I forgot to say some key points.

 

EC: varied (like everyone lol). I have more "creative/different" volunteer experiences than the typical premed, which is why I think I got an interview after 3rd year. Minimal research and minimal work experience.

Waitlist (Good Waitlist? I think because it doesn't say "it is unlikely that you will receive an offer")

Time-Stamp: 7:37 AM

GPA: 3.95

Stream: English

Geography: IP

EC: Lots, check interview thread

Current Year: Graduated UG

Interview: Felt good, messed up one question, but overall good.

 

Hopefully the waitlist moves a lot this year :).

waitlist (good)

timestamp - 7:38AM (EST)

GPA - 3.99

Stream - English

Geography - IP (Ontario)

EC - average

Current year - 4th year UG

Interview - A mix of good and bad responses

 

To the person above: if you see something like "it is unlikely that you will be offered a position," then it's a bad waitlist. Otherwise, it's a good (normal) waitlist.

Good waitlist

 

​Time: 7:38 AM

GPA: 3.983

​Stream: English

​ECs: Actually mediocre

​Interview: I thought it was a disaster, but in retrospect it wasn't quite THAT bad. See here. I DID however, forget my interview shoes. So I was in a nice suit, and after the interview a kind fellow interviewee pointed out, "Hey, nice Nike AFOs". Imagine the horror.
