Post Interview Statistics?

Recommended Posts

hey I was just wondering, is U of C generally a place where IP candidates are less likely to be accepted post interview compared to the rest of schools in Canada? Just thinking because of the ~150 spots for ~570 interviewees. I know in the end this doesn't matter, but was just curious

Thanks :)

Last year, same number of applicants interviewed but on their admission stats histograms, 'Successful applicants' had n = 245. So I'm assuming that at some point last summer, 245 students received an offer (immediately or off waitlist). Pretty good odds, I'd say. 

Exactly what I was looking for and those are pretty good odds. Thank you :)

Wouldn't most of these "extra" offers be sent to OOP applicants? Just comes to my mind because from what I understand turnover is very low (most accept an offer elsewhere)

Based on what doctak said, it may be distributed across based on proportions? Like 85% IP vs. 15% OOP for all offers? Unless they have 2 separate waitlists for IP and OOP which makes WAYYYYY more sense. I know a bunch of IPs last year that went to Alberta or other OOP schools so once they fill the 15% quota, if even, the rest should be sent to IPs.

Hm, I wonder how it does work. I was reading old blog posts from last year from ucmed, and near the end Dr. Walker wrote "We have made about 30-40 WL offers so far.  We are at a point of very little movement. I anticipate “standing down” a number of people on the waitlist in the next week or so."

155 + 30-40 is nowhere near the 245 stated in the stats

Probably because most schools initially accept more people than they have seats because they know, historically that a certain percentage will decline their offers.

 

Also I think there's just one waitlist as far as I understand. They just accept the next person in line until they fill the OOP quota, then skip any OOPs after that. Could be wrong though.
