Hi guys!

my post will be odd here, but I am wait listed at U of T dentistry, so I was wondering any of you who are on the med wait list, has been accepted to u of t dentistry so that if you get in to med, would drop your spot in dentistry:s (I hope its not that confusing)

 

Dentistry waitlists usually move according to med waitlists hence the desperation to see if there are people on both waitlists and whether they would drop their dental seats. Last year, there was unusual movement on med waitlists which caused the dental waitlists (especially UofT but UWO as well) to move a lot. Sadly, this year the med waitlists haven't been moving a lot thus dental waitlists have barely moved.

That doesn't mean the whole class came from the waitlist. That just means that the last, say, 30 seats, got offered 2-3 times before someone accepted it.

Fair enough but emphasizes my original post regarding waitlist movement being significant yet under reported on premed101. Good luck all

Does anyone know of anyone else who got offers??

 

I want to believe today's post was a prank hahah

 

Haha oh goodness I was thinking the exact same thing, but still congratulations to that individual!! :P

Do you think we all had the same original "waitlist" letter? Or do you think there are different types depending on your position in the waitlist? I only just learned that Western (or was it McMaster??) does this...

Based on this review, we are unable to offer you a position at this time, however, your name has been included on our waiting list.

 

That's what mine said.

 

That's what mine said as well. And I was offered a spot last week off the waitlist. Good Luck guys

So we're up to a grand total of 4 people on PM101 being accepted off the waitlist so far...Nice

Anyone know how this compares to previous years where ~200 offers have been made? Did so few people of PM101 report being admitted off the waitlist?

If 10 people reported being accepted initially when we know 100+ offers went out, it's not far off to say that 4 people reported coming off the waitlist as a representation of say 40+.

Well if someone declines an offer one day after they received it, I don't think the office has to wait the whole time to offer the next person. I think at the beginning people may have more options/acceptances so they use the whole time/week to make a decision.
