    Well boys and girls, probs gonna call it quits after tomorrow. I've been lurking on this forum for 2 weeks now and y'all seem like real nice, genuine people and I hope all of you will get accepted into med school next year if not this year. Been feeling like garbage after seeing a bunch of my friends get accepted to all different med schools while I could barely scrape by with interviews but at least we're guaranteed an interview next year. And hey, everybody goes through life at their own pace. It still may be premature for me to lose hope so quickly but I think a lot of people may be feeling what I've been feeling, I get particularly neurotic and stressed with these kind of things and at some point I have to come to terms with maybe this year ain't it. But no matter what happens, try to stay cheerful y'all, although that's easier said than done especially with the recent events going on the world but that's life I suppose. Cheers y'all, stay frosty.

    Windsor matches to all the same competitive specialties as London. In the fall admin will release CaRMS info from the most recent match to you, with stats split up by Windsor and London so that you can compare. You’ll find that there isn’t much difference. Our clerks also have an excellent reputation for being very well prepared.

    I don't think any HWL got London this cycle. There were several unspecified who wanted London but got Windsor instead.

    Hey,

    So I will be attending Windsor this upcoming fall, and am really excited.

    I have been wondering about how Windsor grads compare to London grads when it comes to scores, and placements. Does anyone have an official source that compares the two, that they wouldn't mind sharing with me?

    Thanks!

    Anything with an asterisk is a mandatory session, and this isn't a carbon copy of what your schedule will look like bc it all depends on when lecturers are available.

    For what it's worth, I found this template schedule breakdown for 1st years. (Not sure how accurate it is now with pandemic measures)

    Schedule varies a lot from week to week - I tried uploading some pictures but I guess they're too big? I can try to message them to you/anybody else who is interested!

    I think the majority have been called  I think they'll get through a decent chunk of the HWL today or all of the HWL people since they started yesterday afternoon, but I'm not sure

    Congratulations everyone!  Im out of reactions but I’m so happy for everyone on the HWL. That must have been one stressful night once the HWL calls stopped going out yesterday, but glad to see it all worked out. Hopefully we get similar news for NWL  
     
    I really appreciate everyone keeping us updated and coming back to post

    Hi! They call because it's possible that you're on several waitlists. They'll tell you that you have a spot/which campus it is on, and to expect your acceptance email to come within the next 24 hrs. They'll also tell you how long you have to respond to the offer - so I was offered a spot on May 30th and given until June 10th to respond. The idea is if I had been on another waitlist I might've wanted to wait it out and see if I got an offer from the other school. They did ask me if I was expecting to accept the offer but you don't have to give a firm answer right away if you need some time to think about it. I think the call is mostly because they like to have confirmation that you've received the offer, and the faster they can get you to accept/turn down the offer the sooner they know how many more calls they need to make. 
    I got my call at 4:00pm-ish? I don't have the same phone anymore so I can't give an exact time. I do remember knowing that calls started going out that day and around 3:00pm thinking that I must've not been getting a call bc I figured their office was on summer hours and they were probably closed by then, but then it came through! If you miss the call I believe they just try again? they might call the alternate number if you provided one on your account? Missing the call won't affect your position on the waitlist - they'll do their best to get ahold of you. If at all possible though I'd try to have your phone on you with the volume on for the next week.
    Hope you hear back quickly!

    Wow I havn't been on the website so I am so shocked by all the wonderful messages. 
    I am still feeling pretty sad and hopeless about this cycle but thank you for the nice messages. Not sure if I will try again or not but I guess ill see what happens this cycle and decide if I have enough energy for another cycle.

    50% stay at home school for residency; a further 25% stay in the home province
    Where you practice after residency depends on your field, job availability, and requirement to do a fellowship
