  1. Toronto over-offers as they know a certain percentage of students will decline their offer. It won't start until 3 to 4 weeks after D-Day and then there might only be 10 WL offers. This is in contrast to a Medical School such as Ottawa where they only offer the spots available. Ottawa's waitlist moves right away and on the english stream around 60 students get WL offers.
  2. You have to keep in mind two things. The statistics you provide are for both the french and english stream and the spreadsheet is only for the english stream. Secondly, the spreadsheet does not reflect all the english waitlisted applicants. There are many that will not post their stats. Either they don't have an id or do not want to share their information. I do not know that percentage but I built an estimation into my calculation.
  3. The order is determined by the exact minute and second of the creation time. Some students may post their creation time while some others may post their receive time because they can't find or don't know how to find the creation time. That is why you may see some with a later time receive an offer before an earlier time. They have posted the wrong time. The order of offers on the spreadsheet is only as accurate as the time provided which may be incorrect.
  4. I was surprised at the amount of personal messages I got with my last post. So I'm going to tell you what I have come up with. If you don't want to know, don't look at the rest of this message. This analysis is all based on assumptions such as - percentage of original offers that will be declined, percentage of students that post their stats, percentage of waitlist offers that will be declined, whether someone will actually inform the group if they decline their Ottawa waitlist offer etc. It's impossible to know all this information with exact certainty so this is a very e
  5. Having been through this Ottawa Waitlist with my daughter in prior years, I can offer some perspective. It looks like Bin 1 is only two applicants (redblue1234 & blackpanther3). Bin 2 starts with either hellolettuce118 or no account (it's not clear). The top 3 were not skipped and are probably next on the list. There was one person skipped last year but to set everyone's mind at ease, it was because the waitlist position was conditional. That person had to supply more information to get an offer and did not do so. We may never know what information wasn't provided tha
  6. No offence taken. She will probably set up an id here soon. Right now she just views anonymously and is concentrating on preparing for interviews. Plus she works full time so her time is limited. I just scan the boards for her and if I see anything interesting, I let her know. But yes I have mentioned to her that it would be wise for her to set up an id herself.
  7. I find it interesting that different medical schools seem to look at different criteria. My daughter got interviews to some medical schools like Western but got rejected from Queen's. Just scrolling through the messages I noticed some applicants got a Queens interview but got rejected from Western. I guess that's a good thing because otherwise all medical schools would be chasing the same applicants and you'd either get all interviews or all rejects. Now I'm an old accountant so I'm not as smart as any of you but it seems to me that just because you get an interview does no
  8. My daughter just got an R She thinks she got hurt by low CARS Time to move on. Good luck to those that got interviews.
  9. She has absolutely the same sentiment as journeytofreakingMD Just send it out. I can't believe how much these medical schools stress you guys out.
  10. Does anyone know if there are second waves of invites? My daughter has no email yet. Or does this mean she's an R?
  11. Here is the exact working. She forwarded the email to me.
  12. Actually she received the email later than what she told me. Here is the exact stats Stream (EN/FR): ENTime You Received E-mail: 7:46:20"Created" Time: unknownwGPA: 3.96
  13. Hi All, I'm not applying to med school, I'm actually an old accountant who works for a company that sells disability insurance to med students, residents, doctors etc. BUT i am truly here for my daughter who applied to 4 med schools - Mac, Toronto, Queens and Ottawa. She only got an interview to Ottawa so this is her only shot. Like most of you, she was disappointed to be waitlisted. But for your stats, she had wgpa 3.96 and received the email about 7:40. I asked her to forward the email so I can see the exact time but she hasn't done it yet. Does she have any shot to get in off
