  1. according to the offer form: Please complete and return this form to the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine, McMaster University MD Admissions, by email to: drochn@mcmaster.ca by May 26, 2020 (or by offer expiry date). i would think this means we can accept the offer on the 26th - i'm personally wondering if it's due at 11:59pm or another time of day.
  2. thank you for this (i wanted to react to your post but i have no reactions left haha)
  3. sending hugs to you all. the system is saturated with good applicants, and thus is unfair & somewhat random. i cannot imagine how you are feeling but i am sending strength to anyone in this position.
  4. okay, this post seems a little dramatic to me. if this person passed the MMI at mac, i'm sure they also could have just as easily passed the MMI at queen's or the panel at western/ottawa/toronto. if anything (and i don't think it does mean anything), this shows that the lottery system is a perfectly fine alternative since the MMI isn't able to screen for people like this dude anyway.
  5. oh my goodness! you're so kind, i really appreciate this message congratulations on your 4 offers, that's incredible! i'm sure you'll be an amazing doctor.
  6. Result: waitlisted (high) Timestamp: 9:05am 2 yr GPA: 3.895 MCAT: 522 (131/129/130/132) Interview: my first interview (in-person). although i started out a little nervous i think i warmed up fairly quickly, and afterward i felt really good about it. i did fumble one question, but other than that i think i mostly i gave thorough & thoughtful answers. my panel was friendly but a little stoic. i made a joke at the end that they all laughed at, and then the physician on my panel said "we are delighted you're considering our school", so i felt like they liked me.

  9. Result: waitlisted Timestamp: 9:32am 2YRS: 3.87 MCAT: 522 (131/129/130/132) ECs: fairly strong i think, diverse with some common themes running through Interview: i was terrified for this interview but i actually ended up really enjoying it. MMI - felt really relaxed, had a few weird stations, didn't feel terrible about any of my answers. panel - was super confident about this. had a great conversation with my 2 panelists and i felt like i gave great answers to all their questions. In-person or Virtual: in-person Year: graduated in 2018 & currently workin
  10. does anyone know what time on may 26th we have to accept our offer by? do you think it's 11:59pm? i feel like this info is pretty important but i can't find it anywhere lol
  11. do you have any idea if the waitlist typically starts moving the day after offers are due (so this year, may 26th), and, if so, what proportion of people receive offers at this point?
  12. thank you!! (i'm out of reactions for the day again)
