Result: Accepted to Windsor Campus off the Normal Waitlist

Timestamp: May 29th 2016 phone call around 10:30 and email around 3

2 yr GPA: 3.89
MCAT: 11 BS/11 PS/10 VR

ECs/Volunteer: A couple volunteer trips to Uganda, played on a competitive Quidditch team all through university, various other long term volunteering and generally just doing ECs I was interested in/ thought were fun

InterviewI remember thinking it went way better than last years, but maybe that was only because I didn't walk out of there crying this time. Hoenstly felt like I had pretty good rapport with the interviewers and thought I'd end up on the high-waitlist so I was more than a little disappointed to be on the normal one. 

Year: Currently finishing up a 1 yr course based Masters at Guelph

Geography: SWOMEN

Honestly, I'm a long time lurker of these forums. And these past 3 weeks have kind of sucked what with trying to figure out what to do next year and coming to the realization that I would have to write the new MCAT (I swear to god I booked a date in August and ordered the EK books 2 days ago). I'm so excited to be given the opportunity and I cannot wait to meet all of my new classmates.

Think it's over then?

 

over? not yet likely - but for those on the normal of course that means finally they are being called. It also means once again the high waitlist to add to the history of such a thing occurring.

I was offered a spot in the Windsor Campus this morning. I'm most likely going to decline the offer for another school, so there will be one more spot! Good luck to everyone on the waitlist.

How long did they give you to respond to the offer?

MCAT: 12/11/12

ECs: tried to do things I was interested in

Just wanted to update this thread with some waitlist movement. Feels unreal to be posting this as I've been legit studying for 8+ hours a day for the MCAT (already registered for the exam in July + bought a bunch of books and resources). Will be accepting as it's my only offer.

Had a long discussion with my partner today about what we were going to do for the next year. Then we came across wifi and I had numerous messages from my parents and a very surprising email in my inbox. I cried and cried and cried. I'm incredibly thrilled and feel so very lucky. Can't wait to meet the rest of the class!

Those who are still waiting or planning for next year, do not give up! If it's what you want you will make it happen.

Result: Accepted (London!!!!)

Timestamp: 10:31 am EST May 8th 2018

2yr GPA: 3.9ish

MCAT: Above non-SWOMEN cut-offs

ECs: A bit above average, diverse. Definitely framed them in a certain way so that they fit the mould of the student Western was looking for, or at least I think so.

InterviewExcellent. Laughed a lot, got a few follow-ups, felt as if they were genuinely interested in what I had to say and my experiences. I felt very comfortable and wished we had more time to chat at the end of it. I think it really helped to have a strong narrative and then connect every answer to that overarching theme.

Year: MSc, working 

Geography: Non-SWOMEN, IP

So relieved and excited!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to meet everyone.

I've been trying to get into med school in Canada since 2010, as this was always my lifelong dream. I was just offered the only full-tuition scholarship they give out at Saint James School of Medicine in Anguilla, and I declined it a few days ago (otherwise I could not have completed the MSc requirements for an offer from Schulich). I'm devastated and considering this religion / praying thing right now.
