McMaster Interview Invites/Regrets 2018

Recommended Posts

First time poster here. Just want to contribute to the body of data that I often trawled in hopes of determining my chances in the past.... Kudos to all the invitees and good luck to all!

Invite/Reject: Reject

GPA: 3.72

CARS: 127

CASPer: Felt quite good: honest, articulate, sizeable and complete answers to all questions. But, not good enough to counterbalance lower GPA and CARS evidently! Who knows? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

IP, NTP, grad

Invite/Reject: Reject

GPA: 3.77

CARS: 126

Casper: Felt pretty decent, i enjoy it. I know with my stats rejection is certain without a super high CASPer so was not unexpected :P. Come on Queens invite me again!

IP, Graduated 2014/2016, Working

Disappointed to say the least

REEEEEJECTED 

GPA 3.96

CARS 127

CASPER thought it was decent enough, now I'm just concerned about what this means for my chances at Ottawa. Mac and Toronto were my top choices so I'm pissed. 

3rd year

 

I really don't want to write the mcat again (514) but I might have to :(

Casper: Felt ok for the first bit, but by the end my typing/thinking was a bit slower and the last two scenarios I didn't get to the last questions.

I feel very lucky and so grateful, and very very excited!

Congrats to those who received MD interview invites today!

To those who received rejections, do not lose hope! 

I'm a second time applicant, and so far I haven't received either an invite nor a rejection email from Mac. Does anyone know if Mac rolls out their emails over a couple of days, or is this just today? 

Stressed, yet trying to remain hopeful (again)...

I would call them tomorrow. 

I've gotten WL for INTW once and it was sent to me on the same day. As far as I can remember they have always sent all answers all at once
