It was 124 last year. Glad to be part of the party people. Anyone have a rough idea how many ppl are waitlisted?

Based on past threads, McMaster over-offers (offers more than 203 seats) and has a wait-list (not sure how long) but I hear there's wait list movement each year.

If we do get in off a waitlist, are we most likely going to be sent to a regional campus? Since I'm assuming the higher ranked people had first dibs and most wanted Hamilton

That is something that baffles me. Because there are ppl with better than our stats that got pushed into regionals today. What happens if someone drops from Hamilton? Do we get the dibs or to the regionals from today get dibs?

They give out 330 offers for 206 spots. We just need to find out how many of us are out there. I suspect our chances are higher right now than they were today tho, which is good.

They might have requested a regional campus or did bad on the interview but not bad enough. Honestly, I'm not sure.

What do you mean?

before it was 330/550 (60%). Now that some ppl have been accepted and some rejected, we are standing at 125/x. Assuming x is around 150-200, we are not doing too bad guys.

Do they publish any values about the number of individual in Mac's WL?

Do you know if they send more offers than seats?

Not initially i don't think. That is what the waitlist is for. 

I have heard the contrary that they over--offer AND have a waitlist
