Mcgill Interviews Regrets/invites 2017

Recommended Posts

if we haven't gotten anything yet, can we assume refused?

The admissions office inputs everything to Minerva manually and only open around 830-9 AM and have a lot of applications to go through so doesn't mean you were refused because you haven't heard anything yet. Deep breaths and good luck!

so now can we assume if we haven't heard anything it's a rejection? Also i don't see and MD/PhD invites yet..anyone?

Rather than stress yourself out, just wait for a status update. I know that's easier said than done, but no news is literally just no news when you have humans inputting these kinds of things. =3

thanks folks - that's reassuring. 

 

keep in mind that for each applicant receiving an interview they need to manually input the interview date and time, and additional information on your minerva . Roughly 277 interview invites, so updating 277 minerva pages takes a while. No news is good news, hang in there

Congrats everybody!!!! I've been waiting for his moment for over years!!!! But now they ask a photo identification and disclosure agreement to be updated. Do we wait their official email to upload them?
