    hartk48 got a reaction from FlyingScottsman in How do rejections work?   
    Last year I got my “pre-mediated” (haha) rejection on Feb 13th. 
    So yeah, rejections wil should come out soon. As far as I can recall, I was one if the firsts to post a rejection.

    hartk48 reacted to Dragonite in At what cGPA should the applicant go for a second undergrad?   
    This is impossible to give a good answer to without knowing more information. In short, it all depends on the GPAs of your individual years, your MCAT, and where you're from. Most schools use some form of weighting that could make a seemingly low 3.0 cGPA competitive (e.g. if your top 2 years are good then Queen's and Western are potentially options). Even with a relatively low cGPA you can still get McMaster if you have a good CARS score and CASPer.

    That's actually probably a good thing, because it means you don't have to put down a deposit without hearing from all the schools. As much as it'd be nice to find out, it makes sense.

    It’s usually on par with the Ontario schools, as far as I know. I know a girl who was accepted last year (from Ontario) and found out after she found out about all the Ontario schools.

    I was in their office 10 min ago, and confirming March 6 is indeed the date they send out notices for IP applicant (everybody: accepted, waitlisted, rejected)

    Someone posted on the pre-interview facebook group that admissions told them March 6th for IP letters. Not sure if that's true or not!

    This link goes to a PDF file from Dal Med and shows reports from all of the Assistant Deans.
    The admissions info starts on page 28 of the PDF and I think you'll find it interesting. A table on page 29 shows that 275 folks were interviewed for the class of 2021 and breaks it down by pool.

    I’ve read here somewhere that the OOP list moves completely through some years. I’ve also heard that the New Brunswick wait list has moved completely through in the past as well.
    Remember Dal breaks up IP into NS, NB and PEI, and applicants from each province only compete against applicants from that province for seats. So the total ratio of acceptance of IP accepted/interviewed is not the same for each province. I believe NS (probably more like ~30)  is lower than the ~44% and NB is higher. Not sure about PEI but probably lower as they only get 6 seats? And OOP is probably much higher than ~15%. And yeah Dal supposedly interviews all maritime applicants who meet the minimum gpa, MCAT and CASPer requirements so 288 total is interesting based off their historic  reported total maritime applications of ~400. Must be a lot of people applying with a blind MCAT score or lying about their grades on the application.
    The implementation of the CASPer test is also interesting because statistically the bottom 10-15% of scores would be below 1.5sd of the mean so that would eliminate ~100 or more total applicants based on past admissions data and I wonder how many are maritime relative to OOP.

    Couple of things to keep in mind:
    OOP movement is insane, I don't remember the exact stat but it moves quite a bit!
    If you are looking at IP pools, remember that most applicants also apply to memorial, so that gives us a little more seats!
    One issue specific to Dal, is that the cut offs for Maritimers are very, very low. One could very well have a terrible file that no matter how stellar the interview, will be rejected (one of my constant nightmares)
    Last year offers came out on March 13... so roughly 40 days!
