Does anyone know when invites will be sent out?

Hopefully by Wednesday! Last year Queen's sent out on January 31st. Ottawa also sends out invites tomorrow. Could potentially be a really good or bad week for me haha. Best of luck to you!

The wait for Queens has been the most agonizing, given their relatively opaque selection criteria. The suspense is killing me. 

I feel the same way... since there's no information about what they really want it feels like anything could happen which causes me to refresh my email every 5 min

Very likely to get it tomorrow. They’ve sent it on the last business day of January for the past few years. 

I applied just for the lolz. I have a 123 in CARS but I figured Queen’s is mysterious enough to justify an app haha

Yes, Queens did send it out on Tuesday, January 31 last year.  However, this year they have moved the first round of interviews to the February 24, 25 weekend.  They might send invites out today?

What was the first interview weekend last year?

I believe it was March 4, 5 2017?  And then March 25, 26.  So definitely an earlier start to interviews this year.  Maybe Queens decided to schedule interviews during February break to allow travel time and not miss class?  Good idea. :)

The trick is to assume Queens will already reject you. Did this for all the schools I applied to - the interviews I got became way more meaningful/surprising and those I didn't were expected so nothing lost :) Call it pessimistic but it works!!

That’s definitely the best way to look at it haha. Just use any excuse in your stats to sell yourself short and expect a rejection. You’ll be super happy to receive an invite and you won’t be too distraught if you don’t.
