Really late, but just thought I would contribute to the stats:

 

Date: May 12th

Waitlisted

OMSAS cGPA: 3.87

How you felt CASPER went: fine I guess...I had nothing to compare it to as it was my first time doing CASPER or anything like it

Accepted off Waitlist to Hamilton Campus.
Timestamp: 3:58PM EST

Super excited to be attending. Got the email whilst eating lunch at work so I started hi-fiving the air, oblivious to my coworkers.
 

cGPA: 3.84

VR: 13

Geo: OOP

Year: Year 3 Undergrad

Casper: Lots of ideas in my head, not enough finger dexterity to type it all out in time

Interview: Bombed two because they were of a type that I did not know was part of MMI... did average on most others, 2-3 felt really good because they featured things that I actually experienced.

Accepted off WL to Hamilton today. Time stamp: 3:53pm

CASPER: felt like my ability to type fast gave me an edge to type more of my thoughts and I made sure to answer all questions per section rather than making each answer as perfect as possible. 

Current Year: 1 year post graduation from undergrad

Interview: felt good about most stations except 2-3. I think confidence was a strength for me.

I'm flipping out right now, my heart just went from 80 bpm to 150 and my hands are shaking!

 

cGPA: 3.92

IP 

 

3rd year applicant

 

Casper: Thought I did ok, I'm a pretty decent typer, wrote a lot and didn't run out of time on any questions

Interview: 2 bad stations (one was just unprepared and the other was a lack of total information), the rest were pretty good. I ran out of time on several stations, so keep that in mind. I tend to talk a lot and have a lot to say, but it worked out in the end!

 

P.S. I only wrote verbal and I managed to get in. This has been done before as well, so getting in with 1/11/1 is possible!

OMSAS cGPA: 3.89


VR: 14


Geo: IP


Year: 3rd


Casper: It seemed decent, but it was really just a blur. I didn't feel uncomfortable, nor did I feel comfortable.


Interview: I actually had a lot of fun! I thought that I did the best job I possibly could at the time, even though there were a number of areas that I thought I should've improved. Overall, I felt that I did the best I could considering my circumstances at the time, but I knew my interviews had flaws.
