    Researchbunny100 reacted to newmy88 in 2020 Waitlist Thread   
    I think we WILL see a lot of movement, but I’m not sure if it’ll be next week. Everyone with offers still have 1 1/2 weeks to accept. We might see a trickle of movement until then, but I doubt they would massively send out offers unless most people have firmly confirmed/declined at this point (which is unlikely). I think if we don’t see a lot of movement next week we shouldn’t be worried!

    There's probably something to that theory, but the issue is that in between the first (Seconds given) timestamp and last good waitlist one (that I saw quickly eyeballing it) is 589 seconds. If they sent one waitlist email a second they would have good waitlisted more people than they interviewed. 
    Add in the way the GPA scale restarts at around 7:41:30, 7:45, and 7:46 + an offer to the top already, and it looks like the same pattern as past years, but with significantly more data in the thread making it easier to visualize and a broader time range.

    Hi everyone!
    Here is the updated spreadsheet! Also thanks to @klj.klnmk,mn for your version too, I think it's nice to have it sorted into bins! I got neurotic and updated this with stats from last year... although I didn't go looking too deep so I apologize for the lack of info! But it looks like we have way more data this year already!
    I'll update the spreadsheet as we get more information/if there are significant changes. If you're a lurker please feel free to update your info to give us all a better idea of how this waitlist is working  also if I messed anything up, please let me know I'll fix it. Also congrats to @DrOtter!!! I hope we all get to experience what you did today!!

    That does give some hope but I wonder if us having emails 1-2 seconds apart isn't actually indicative of Ottawa's email frequency. I think it's possible with COVID, it could be that internet speeds/reliability were affected too. Maybe the server couldn't handle the number of emails being sent out and what we're seeing is some sort of latency period or the program that was extracting candidate emails/info was lagging. To me it seems like the second bin starts around late 7:41 where people had 4.0 or very high 3.9s got their email.
    Whatever the case hopefully it works out for us! Guess we'll only find out at the end of the month and the panic will resurface...

    Researchbunny100 got a reaction from pinkneuron in 2020 Waitlist Thread   
    yeah from previous years it does seem like it's the first two time stamps but i think their timestamps were much closer (bunched than ours). I find ours to be more spread out 37, 39, 41 etc. from last year it seemed that when they got to the 3.95 category of the first bin they were still at the first time stamp where as ours falls more into the 39 category (second time stamp). It's just an observation/ thought though haha.

    I'm not entirely sure if there is a correlation here - I think perhaps there is and we have a mix of people reporting their "created" vs. "received" times. By this logic, however, would the start of the second bin not be at 7:41am when the GPA jumps to 4.00 again? And then from there it would fall gradually until another 4.00, etc.?

    I was waitlisted last year and now again this year. I know how being in this position can take a toll on your mental health. If anyone wants to talk about anything while we wait please PM  You are so much more than a med school acceptance!

    I believe in past years it's been around 7am EST! Last year though, people could see offers (but not rejects/waitlists) at midnight on OMSAS but we're not sure if that was a glitch or a new thing!

    All I know is that MD/PHD typically hear back much sooner than the May release date for general acceptance. Given that is is already late April you would have likely heard back by now.

    I think when they say "list of excellence" it just means the ranking list of candidates, from which they send out offers to the top 168 (or something). And the rest will be waitlisted. The only exception to that is if you had a really poor interview in which case you won't be ranked on this list at all (but I think these cases would be rarer...?)
