  1. I feel u. This pretty much sums up my decision making for the #2 and #3 spots
  2. I agree, very unforgiving. There is certainly an abundance of amazing applicants. Remember that you are amongst this cohort of 'outstanding applicants'. FWIW, 16 for 2 spots, while not great, isn't horrible - I've seen (and am banking on) worse odds. Remember some interviewees will rank other programs ahead of your home program. Consider what your home school competition is like (how many people from your school interviewed for those two positions). If that number is favourable, take solace in that. If not, oh well. You've done all you could, worked incredibly hard, and managed to receive mult
  3. This is all conjecture, but I presume that interview performance will likely assume a different (and likely more impactful) role in the selections process this year - particularly for 'away' students who have not rotated with a given division/program to which they have applied and are interviewing with. Again, this is based on here-say/speculation, but in previous years (particularly for small and competitive specialties), programs likely had a very good idea as to who their top candidates were at the pre-interview stage based primarily on elective performance and rapport/connections forged th
  4. At face value 12.5%... obviously not accounting for pre-test probability (relationship with the program and their level of interest in you as a candidate before/after file review as compared to other candidates invited to interview), interview performance vs other candidates, and where said program ranks on other candidates rank order list. Too many factors to really say. Somewhat reassuringly, last year 82.3% of those exclusively applying to a 'high demand' discipline matched in the first round (presumably then to said discipline). But I believe 'high demand' is defined as any discipline with
  5. My thought is that some programs are just getting all of their ducks in a row before corresponding with interviewees, and will tie this up by tomorrow as it is the end of the week. Given how contracted this whole process has been, I've been extremely reticent in reaching out to/'nagging' programs for email follow-up at the risk of being perceived as annoying lol. Personally, I'm going to give it until tomorrow afternoon.
  6. Anyone get an email from UofT GSx? Status update came out Tuesday but still haven't received an email from the program.
