    I think mine are ~1-0 % based on the glazed/confused/bored/ panel reactions as I dithered my way into the R zone. But for others I've heard ~50% .

    Anyone else fantasize about what it would be like to read that acceptance email, and get caught up thinking about how your going to tell your family and friends? Or just me  slowly going crazy

    Yeah getting the midnight Western waitlist icon and then having to wait for the waitlist rank email 9 hours later feels bad

    I can’t say waiting out the waitlist last year was easy at all. Probably some of the most stressful months of my life  Although obviously I would prefer a waitlist over a rejection, the not knowing if I have to pick up my entire life and move somewhere within a couple weeks was not fun to go through lol. And that class is full email hit hard in June…
    Here’s to hoping we all get initial offers so we don’t have to experience that!!! 
     
    ONE MORE WEEK!!!!

    my heart can't take another rejection. I'm scared it'll discourage me from ever trying again

    theevilsloth reacted to Surg_Med in Accepted/Rejected/Waitlisted??? (for current applicants)   
    Result: Accepted to UTSG!
    Timestamp: May 14 @ 9:17 am
    GPA: 3.99
    MCAT: 125+ in all sections
    ECs: Above average. Many years of research (3 first author pubs), student gov, volunteering, lifeguarding, teaching, and other managerial/leadership experiences. Many awards and scholarships!
    Essays: Spent a whole month on them and had 6 people read them over.
    Interview: My favorite interview! Felt above average in all 4 stations. Connected with 3 of my interviewers and had friendly conversations with them. Definitely Showed my personality! My immediate reaction was good but over the next 6 weeks, I convinced myself I was not going to get in (well thank goodness I was wrong ).
    Year: Finished MSc
    Geography: IP 
    This is my 5th time applying, so May 14th was definitely my favorite day EVER! The interview used to be my weakness in the past, but I feel like over the years, my experiences have helped me to improve my communication skills and become more mature. Showing my experiences and personality was the key to getting in this year! If you were rejected this year and/or in the past, my advice is DO NOT GIVE UP; learn from your weaknesses and improve (I know easier said than done)! Persistence goes a long way in medicine! If you would like tips, feel free to DM me (trust me I know looooots about different types of med school apps and interviews ).
    Will be accepting my offer (UofT has always been my dream school)! Can't wait to get to meet my classmates!

    Really excited to be posting this to a few different threads... This is my third cycle applying to medical schools across Canada. The first time (2016) I was rejected from 6 schools post-interview, the second time I was waitlisted to U of A but never got off the waitlist. I then took a year off from applying to graduate from my Physiotherapy degree and work for a bit to save up money and gain experience. AND I FINALLY RECEIVED MY FIRST ACCEPTANCE THIS YEAR (4 acceptances, 1 waitlist). I am still in shock, this process has filled me with more self-doubt than anything else in my life, and there were so many times where I questioned if I was good enough and debated giving up. To all those that didn't receive good news today, please don't give up on your dreams! Trust me, it will be worth it.
    Result: Accepted
    Geography: OOP (From AB)
    GPA: 3.95 for OMSAS
    MCAT: 514 (127/130/128/129)
    Degree: Bachelor of Science in Human Kinetics (2016), Masters of Science in Physical Therapy (Dec 2018)
    E.C: Variety, I have worked in a hospital in Calgary as Physical Therapist for the past 5 months, I compete in Powerlifting (have competed at the national and world level for Team Canada), was on the University rowing and swimming team, President of 2 clubs in university, Medical Volunteer trip to Nepal, Habitat for Humanity, Feed the Hungry, etc. Random jobs (Earl's, Starbucks, Ringette Referee, etc). Haven't done any research (which is something my application has always been missing)
    Interview: Very hard to tell, I have had so many interviews and have been unsuccessful at all of them so I never get my hopes up anymore. I just tried to be myself. Interviews have always been the weakest part of my application. I am very social and able to make friends and connections with my patients, but something about bragging about myself has always been uncomfortable for me. My first round of applying, I didn't practice at all and was always concerned about feeling too conceited. I have learnt the hard way that you can't be successful in Med school interviews trying to be modest. The past few years I have practiced talking about my accomplishments with confidence and not trying to down play them, which has finally paid off!
    After changing my mind 1000x, I have finally decided that I will be declining for U of A, but SO SO excited to finally be able to say I did it after all this time. Congratulations to everyone else that has gotten accepted, especially those that have taken multiple years like myself. And once again, to those that haven't gotten accepted, I know the feeling, but please don't let it define you. I believe in you!!!!!
