  1. Nothing received either... I thought updates were to be on a weekly basis?  Perhaps I'm a wee bit deflated and jaded, but if any of us are chosen from off the waitlist, it'll feel great (no doubt), but the way we've been treated (I feel like I'm a second-class citizen or something akin) will always stick with me.  Bad taste in my mouth, in other words.

  2. Hey fellow purgatory members... I hope you all have had a better last few days.
    I still don't know if I'm receiving all correspondence from NOSM, so I just wanted to make sure... Does anyone know if those final two candidates accepted or declined their offers (from NOSM)?  In other words, are some of us still on "life support"?

  3. Thanks for responding!  Indeed, I received the same letter.  For whatever reason, it came later.
    Do we know when candidates for OttawaU or Western are required to reply?  I tend to agree that these two remaining NOSM candidates are likely waiting on a response from another school, though weren't they required to reply to NOSM as of yesterday?  I mean, wouldn't NOSM know whether they accepted or declined (NOSM's offer) by now?
    Purgatory sucks!  lol

  4. Oh, ok.  Than you!  Well... Hope springs eternal as unsatisfying as that likely sounds.  Don't cling to false hope, but it still may come to be.  And, if not... We'll apply again.  I genuinely mean this... Give yourself some credit and stay hopeful.

    Dear Applicant,


    The following movement has occurred on the waitlist for the Entering Class of 2020:


    The NOSM class of Fall 2020 has 62 confirmed learners. We are currently awaiting responses from the two remaining offers. If these two offers are accepted the class will be full.


    42 applicants are remaining on the waitlist.


    You will receive another update in one week or sooner if the class reaches 64 confirmed learners.


  5. Hey! ... Currently on the waitlist... This is my third year applying.  My two previous years, I failed to make the waitlist, so this is an improvement of sorts.
    But, like everyone else, I have no idea where I'm positioned, nor do I know how deep into the waitlist NOSM typically goes (on average).  Any ideas?
    Also, does anyone know if offers of admission will be given prior to May 26?  Could they occur next week (after the long weekend)?
    Hope everyone is doing well (despite the wait) and keeping healthy!

    P.S. - Be proud for making the waitlist.  I know it's tough and it may even feel like a defeat, but in reality, NOSM is telling you that you've made the team, but they can't promise that you'll see any ice time this year.  Perhaps, not the greatest of metaphors, but it's one way to view things without being artificially cheery.
