  1. I also think this is a great idea! I'd be interested in joining.
  2. I'm IP and declined my offer. Good luck to everyone on the waitlist!

Interview: Thrilled to be accepted at UofC after being rejected post-interview here the previous two years! I felt the stations were less convoluted and abstract and more straightforward compared to previous years, even though they were still quite long. I tried to go at an even pace and focus on being precise in my an

Also spoke about experiences such as living abroad and overcoming some personal challenges in my highlights and how they shaped me. Interview: Felt that it went ok overall! Had an awkward moment at my first station, and felt like the panel was a bit rushed. There were 3 stations that I felt I did really well on, while the others f

  8. Mine also says 'application submitted'. In one of the other comments on that thread Dr. P said that some people have this status even though they are at the review stage, so we shouldn't worry.
  9. One of my verifiers did not get contacted (did get contacted the previous year), but I put two verifiers for that activity, so I think it's possible that in those cases they may contact only one verifier. Not sure though. Either way, the school would contact you directly if something was wrong!
  10. Yeah I contacted them today. They did mention that there might be some deferrals too. Hopefully one of us gets in and even if we don't, I have a good feeling we'll make adjustments and come back stronger next year. If we made it this far it's only a matter of when and we are doctor material
  11. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I had a chance to speak to someone from the office, and they told me that so far there's been 6 rounds of offers sent out :/ She said that could be a couple more spots opening up next week, but that the class is pretty much full. Guess it's time to plan for next year's application cycle for me...
  12. I feel like those numbers might just be some sort of administrative way of identifying us. I remember for Mac they had a huge commotion about the 'button' lol and it turned out it didn't really mean anything. People who had it got rejected and those who didn't got in. In addition, I spoke to a friend who mentioned that she's known people who have gotten in around mid June and some even in mid July! So all hope is not lost. Hopefully the waitlist will move for us soon enough!
