  1. Same feelings here. Dunno why there's so much emotional investment in a bag colour lol. Free stuff is awesome. I guess generally:
  2. Just accepted my offer - Looking forward to joining the Queen's fam! Hope to meet some fellow of my fellow Queen's Med 2025 soon (:
  3. Just letting all my fellow waitlisted OOPs know that I'll be removing myself from the waitlist this weekend. Best of luck to those still waiting to hear back! Hope to see you as colleagues in the future
  4. Thanks dude/dudette! Really appreciate the kind words Honestly super thankful for all the supportive people that I've gotten to meet and chat with on here and for all those who have given me advice over the years.
  5. Result: Accepted Timestamp: 8:46 EST 4YRS GPA/2YRS GPA: 3.63 (Yes, it's possible!)/3.83 MCAT: 518 (130/127/130/131) MMI and Panel Interview Thoughts: I felt reaaaalllly unsure about the second half of the MMI. The first half I thought I was on top of, but I remember not feeling great about how I handled the second half. The panel, on the other hand, I thought was amazing. I felt that I really connected well with my interviewers and it was like having a conversation over drinks at a bar lol. Panel Date (Saturday March 27th or Sunday March 28th): Sat Mar 27 ECs: A
  6. Time Stamp: 9:11 AM (when I received the email but I found out at midnight) Accepted/WL/R: Accepted (Unspecified) IP/OOP: IP SWOMEN (Y/N): N 2YGPA: 3.83 MCAT (CP/CARS/BB): 130/127/130 Interview Experience (good, bad, neutral etc): I'd say neutral. The questions felt extremely tricky and I remember feeling let down that there were some experiences that I couldn't contort to match the questions. Had some friendly interviewers, but honestly couldn't remember what their expressions were like because I was staring at my webcam. Felt fairly good immediately after, then
  7. Bless, I can't believe it. Still in shock. Best of luck to you, hoping for some waitlist movement!
  8. It says I received an offer for Western on Student Center, but don't see anything on OMSAS yet. Also says (Unspecified). I'm guessing it's safe to celebrate?
  9. OOP (Canadian) Waitlisted 83% GPA, 518 MCAT ECs: Long-term, diverse, a ton of employment experience Interview: My first ever, so I was pretty stressed, although I felt that the MMI went pretty well and I enjoyed the panel. Got to mention a lot of my experiences in both. Anyone know how much the waitlist generally moves for Canadian Applicants?
  10. Try doing this 5 times lolol. I actually have no idea what I'll do/how I'll manage if the Rs hit. I'm sure they'll hit like a truck Edit: Just trying to take it day-by-day and adopt a "wait and see" approach though. Anything can happen!
  11. This seems like a good strat. I've been keeping everything about my apps pretty close to the chest but I have told quite a few people within that "close to the chest" group (those who have helped me prep, etc.) when I find out. Kinda wishing I hadn't now... I'm also working full-time rn and have a meeting that day. From the discussion here I'm starting to wonder if I should try and schedule it off - I'm probably gonna be a mess lol.
  12. If the thoughts that commonly pop up in my brain were accurate assessments of my performance in any life domain, I'd be a complete failure. I don't trust that guy anymore. That being said, all my post-interview feelings are "eh", so I'm hoping this isn't the first time my brain is right! From what I've read elsewhere, it seems like several people felt like the feelings they had after their interviews weren't necessarily predictive of their results, so I'm banking on that too haha
  13. I'll be in the middle of cooking, or writing something up for work, or even be talking to someone and an unwelcome, vivid memory from one of my interviews will pop into my head, making me physically cringe and say a few choice curse words out loud. This happens on almost a daily basis. Please share treatments for this ailment
