  1. Do you actually believe that the average neurosurgeon is on a par with a PhD-level NOBEL PRIZE WINNER? lmao With all due respect, do you even know what “Nobel prize” means?! This gotta be the most delusional statement I have seen in years.
  2. My waitlist email time stamp was 10:29:29, I don’t think the timestamp theory is true for Toronto, because almost everyone I know did exactly fall in the alphabetical order sense, sounds very unlikely to be a coincidence, also the number of ppl on u of t wait list is pretty small compared to other schools, so I don’t think those stamps correlate to rank, I’m IP Re the second wave of offers: They send a first wave of waitlist offers, and then if ppl from this wave reject, they send new offers to fill them... logically and based on posts here and posts from previous years, so
  3. Guys I got an offer... can't believe it... I had really tough social and personal circumstances that limited my options to U of T only... can't believe it happened
  4. U of T usually sends a first wave of waitlist offers as one patch, which is ideally the only offers available, then they wait for a week till the new deadline for those high waitlister to accept or reject, After a week, they fill the new spots that became available due to high waitlisters rejecting, then leave a couple more people for emergency in case someone can't defend their thesis before deadline, or just cancels last minute, and send rejections to everyone else, So, I would say rejections will probably be sent sometime next week.
  5. That’s very unlikely Today was still the last day to accept offers before the deadline and U of T never does rolling waitlist offers, they send first wave of WL offers and rejections all at once
  6. That’s for sure, U of T wait list is significantly smaller than most other school, because usually they offer quite less positions to waitlisters than other schools... because less people reject their Toronto offers than other schools
  7. Do you guys think the timestamp thing applies to other schools? U of T?
  8. Then probably the time stamp means nothing for Toronto, since most of us are 10:29. Pretty sure the emails were sent simultaneously to everyone and just delivered to people with later timestamps a bit later cause of technical problem or so.
  9. I’m 10:29, in the other thread of “Accepted/Rejected/waitlisted” there are a couple with 10:30 time stamps and a couple with 10:31, And yes it’s also very likely that these time stamps are alphabetical or mean nothing.
  10. So for Ottawa it seems that waitlust emails timestaps do correlate with the ranking because the earliest time stamp there is the one who got an offer from the waitlist so far (the have a quite resourceful thread their in the Ottawa forum), do you guys think it’s the same for Toronto?
  11. Yeah I also wonder the same thing, especially that it seems some ppl get off the wait list every year
  12. Are we sure that u of t does over offer in the first round? The only information I found about that is from last year, someone mentioned that the admission people confirmed to him over the phone that they do over accept.... Does that mean that U of T waitlist is realistically of very little hope/meaning because technically the first round of offers included an embedded waitlist?
  13. This. There is no information about Covid effects on med school waitlists, and I know that because unfortunately I’m waitlist at the only school I can realistically go to provided some special life circumstances I have, so I have been reading into this extensively. So I was saying while there is no information about Covid effects on med school waitlists, I came across some blogs and reports from Law school admission, which subjectively analyze the situation and claim that schools which are historically a hub for out of city, province or country students (UBC or U of T for example) will l
  14. I know quite a few people who got accepted from waitlist too, some got offers even late june, it seems like every year a good proportion of Toronto WL gets in, unfortunately, with what happened at Mac this year and ppl trying to evade it, I’m not really putting much hope here but who knows...
  15. Based on last year’s wait list thread, it seems they send the majority of new offers and rejections after two weeks and only keep a couple of waitlist candidates in case someone of the second wave declines their offer or for example a grad student can’t reach the graduation deadline etc Those last couple of ppl seem to hear their final decision very late, may be end of June or early July
  16. Waitlist here, and have to admit that this is tougher than the straight R I got from other schools... I really thought (and hoped) I would get in U of T, especially that I love in Toronto and my life situation makes it near impossible for me to move to another city... but oh well, life goes on I guess... I know a couple people from previous classes who got in from waitlist, but I haven’t seen anyone who is not going to accept their U of T offer this cycle, so I’m not sure we stand a significant chance here
  17. Are you speaking of your experience only or this is information you know for sure?
  18. Can you please give us information about the waitlist? I got waitlisted and the information is very vague, does it usually move quite a bit? and how fast?
