Thanks for your advice! Don't mind my confusion as this is new for me, but rent for 1 bedroom apartments anywhere (ie. Richmond gates, Platts Lane, etc.) are about $1000, are they not? I think Bayfield is all 1 bedroom apartments while Lambton and Beaver Hall are 2-3 bed rooms apartments and are cheaper considering you're sharing it with someone else. Do you or your classmates who have lived in Bayfield/Lambton/Beaver Hall have any complaints? They seem to be more convenient than Platts due to the distance, even though Platts is nicer. 

I live at bayfield and the building is not the best (some people in our class have been dealing with insect problems) but the convienance to walk to class in 5 min makes me stay here! When you have class from 830-530 and get breaks in between for 1.5 hours, it’s nice to go home and nap!  Be aware that these units go quickly once med acceptances come out so if you want to get a unit, apply soon!

What kind of insect problems? Like bed bugs or....bit of a clean freak here

Not really bed bugs but cockroaches have been a big issue here. Lighting is also an issue, the apartment isn't very well lit and looks old from the inside. Some units have been renovated but they've been mostly taken for the following year. There are better places to live off campus and for cheaper but nothing will beat the 5 minute walk (you will appreciate it if you choose to stay here!)

I would look into Luxe apartments, more expensive but waay nicer than anything else you will find at a 5 min walk to campus. If anyone has any questions about London or what campus is like feel free to pm me. 

edit: Luxe is very popular though so it might be too late to find a suite.

Does anyone know how many people have gotten off the waitlist ? Has someone called and asked the Admissions about that so far ? 

I called to ask last week but they won't release any information about waitlist other than that email where they tell you high/normal/low waitlist. only thing they said was that they only make calls during office hours (830 - 430, M-F).

I feel you :( honestly they need to tell us how many spots have moved and keep us updated... we're already anxious enough not knowing our WL number 

guess we just gotta keep our fingers crossed :( so far I believe we've heard of three spots - two (?) have moved off the waitlist and one is declining soon (off of the UofT/UWO waitlist forum)

Is it weird for the waitlist to have moved only 2 or 3 spots by now? Can any dental students comment on when waitlist movement happened in the year that they applied? Was it this slow for you guys too or was there more movement by now?

the early UofT offers resulted in some candidates cancelling their interviews at Schulich (i.e. the candidates that got UofT offers), meaning there is a stronger likelihood that there is less waitlist movement this year because there could be fewer candidates declining Schulich for UofT dental (since some of those accepted at UofT already cancelled their Schulich interview). 

hopefully the schulich administration factored that into consideration for their HWL...
