Nothing yet, I suspect it will come soon though! They may have done OOP first.

Haha I’m happy to say I haven’t gotten anything done in days. This prolonged waiting is a killer.

haha! This past week especially has been a complete write-off, but I'm OK with it too!  It's been a nice change of pace, but I'm excited to be able to plan ahead again.

Hi all! 

I am a standard OOP applicant and was ACCEPTED into U of S Saskatoon campus this morning. I will be taking the offer.

Honestly thought the MMI could not have gone any worse upon leaving, but maybe I just have too high expectations for myself. Regardless, I made sure to show my own personality and answer as confidently as I could. Looking forward to meeting all my new classmates in August!

Just got the email

Status: Waitlisted

Geography: OOP

MCAT: 521 (128 cars)

 

Time stamp: 11:58 am EST May 15th 2018

Interview: felt like it didn't go so well immediately after, but over time accepted that I may have done alright. Hard to say how it went now but hoping for the best as I will be accepting if I get the offer.

Hey guys, just an update:

I've been accepted off the waitlist for Saskatoon campus. Time stamp was 12:35 pm EST.  Geography: OOP

This is a week after getting waitlisted on May 15th, and I will be accepting the offer. I am incredibly excited to meet you guys in August!

This is definitely the proudest moment of my life so far. I've written the MCAT 4 times (with a void), I'm 2 years out of school, this is my 2nd cycle, and my only med interview ever was this year at USask. These last couple of years have been a real slog with constant doubt nagging at me about whether or not I could do it, but I have to say that all of that was 100% worth it for this moment. To everyone who is still trying and who is sure that medicine is their calling, don't give up. It will eventually work out. There were many times when I wanted to give up but 2 things kept me going: 1) my profound respect for the work that doctors do and 2) the incredible support I received from my friends and family.  I was not always confident in my abilities but this is all I've ever wanted to do so I just kept my head down and surrounded myself with positive people. Good luck to those who remain on the waitlisted or those who are still trying; I know what it feels like and it really sucks, but I promise you that it is all worth it in the end. Keep going!
