    The most creepy thing in this thread -in my humble opinion- is how Mac students and graduates are trying to justify this weird flawed lottery decision that no other school in Canada even came close to, and trying to convince applicants to “just swallow it, because well life is unfair so what you gonna do about it?”. 
    This goes to show you that people are willing to defend their social group’s acts no matter how bizarre and illogical they deem. No wonder nationalism, which is a more public example of the same attitude, is the biggest problem of today’s world.

    Yup, I keep thinking this with respect to the CASPer. They are really undermining the tool that they created that is supposedly "evidence-based".
     
    So let me get this straight Mac, from 101-552 ranked applicants your tool for evaluation is useless? But that's also the tool you used to reject 553-700? None of it makes the slightest bit of sense.

    Im guessing the top 100 are top applicants at other programs and most will have alternative offers, I hope they stick it to Mac and take those offers and Mac ends up with an almost exclusive lottery class lmao

    Why do I feel some applicants will sue McMaster for having held this lottery ?

    Honestly, I doubt they are for two reasons:
    1. This process shows that they don't really care about their applicants.
    2. Why would they?

    The irony is that Mcmaster was the school that pioneered innovative interview strategies like the MMI. Now when push comes to shove, they are the ones that scrap the interview all together and resort to a lottery system...

    Also, they obviously intentionally waited until 4:30 PM on a Friday to send this email out because they couldn't even be bothered enough to pretend to care about addressing applicants' concerns.

    I'm honestly disgusted with Mac. This is horrible and messed up. Why not just send offers to the top 206 ranked??? In what world is this better or more fair??

    I agree with takasugi. I'm going to make a prediction that Mac waitlist movement is higher than normal as people with multiple offers try to avoid the potential consequences (probably overblown/unfounded, but who knows) of being selected by lottery. 
    Who wants to be part of an involuntary experiment on their career if given a chance to opt out?
    And look on the bright side, if you're ever operated on by a Mac '23 graduate, the odds they're lucky are great!

    The logic that you can't know for certain so you pick randomly doesn't follow. If they believe that the CASPer has validity, which evidently they do, then they will at least make educated guesses on who they accept
    It doesn't make sense to tout CASPer as an evidence-based tool only to throw it out the window
