It looks like they chose out of the first weekend and then picked the top from the second weekend (people with panels).

 

A big let down as it sounded like panels were synonymous with offers or at most waitlist

There was no benefit to having an in-person interview.

Rejected. Had online panel. Feel so lost right now, I thought I had at least waitlist in the bag and performed really well at the interview... 

Once I pick myself up off the floor I'll have to start considering next steps.. 

Sorry to hear that. Don't give up!

ACCEPTED!!! Holy crap I can't believe this, I'm completely numb right now.

It took 3 applications, 3 cracks at the MCAT, 2 interviews over two years. If any future applicants read this I absolutely know your struggle and this feeling is so freaking worth it. I hope the best for everyone, I will be accepting this offer :)

Is timestamp a factor in the Queen's waitlist?

I'm not sure, when did u get ur waitlist notification? Usually they send in batches and possibly in alphabetal order to prevent their servers from crashing.

@MDrapper I got my notification at 9:32am. From what's been posted thus far, acceptances came at 9:31am and waitlist emails began at 9:32 to 9:34. However it seems based on older posts from previous years that timestamp may not be a factor. :) Glad to have other people to talk to while we wait it out together!

2YRS: 3.96 (my cGPA was embarrassingly low -- so Queens definitely gives you a chance to grow, mature and show how you've grown to be the person you are today!

Panel: I got pressed on certain things, but overall it was a great 15 min :)

I'll be accepting this offer!!! Can't wait to meet the class of 2024!! Good luck to everyone on the wait-list! Do not give up on your dreams, if this is truely how you think your interests, strengths and experiences are best served. :)

Will be Accepting Western over McMaster because of the terrible job McMaster has done with admissions this year and I don't want specialty/residency schools to look down upon me as being part of the "lottery" class in the future.

I'm taking Western over Queens because a smaller town like Kingston will not have as many opportunities down the road for specialties. I also don't like the long-distance commuting to hospitals in areas around Kingston since they have very few hospitals. 

Good luck everyone!
