  1. Just chiming in on the posts here, I know many won't want to hear this, but the odds of getting in at this point are so low that it's best to move on. The "class is full" email should be here soon. I know it hurts, I've been on multiple waitlists before, but hang in there. It's not worth tearing yourself apart over something you have no control over. I've been there and it doesn't make anything better. Life doesn't wait for you to get into medical school, every year is special and one you'll never get back. Make it count, there's so much to experience out there. This process can beat
  2. Looks like this is probably it. By next weekend, whichever the outcome, at least we won't need to wait any longer. Good luck everyone.
  3. Thanks for letting us know, that's a lot longer than I thought since some other schools only give a week. It seems we're in for a longer wait, buckle up everyone lol. I guess that would push the "final wave" time over to next week monday-wednesday.
  4. Most people don't post on the forums if they got in. Also, usually people are given 1 week to decide off WL offers. The big movements happened last week today/wednesday so today is probably the first deadline of last week's movements. The "final wave" will probs happen some time between today-thursday. People that got in yesterday were likely from those that declined offers early. If we don't hear back by Friday, chances still aren't 0, but it would be best to look towards backup plans at that point.
  5. I'd think a pretty big wave is coming too. McMaster moved much faster than the other schools (Ottawa, Western, Queens, etc.). All the other schools just had big movements which means a lot of people with both schools will be choosing. I'd predict one more wave before we lose hope.
  6. The class is full email will probably go out this week or the next (based off past years). Best to look onwards to next year at this point
  7. I don't think it would be such an unprecedented thing. It would be akin to an additional day or two of medical interview sessions if the auto interviews add another 50 or so people to next years pool. Of course, I would personally prefer this didn't happen since I'll be interviewing, but I would hope everything is fair for the next round of applicants too. I'm curious what the statistics are on interviewing again across medical schools. You bring up a good point that the vast majority of people probably would have gotten interviews again regardless. Still, given Mac took a rather big acti
  8. It at least gives us a sense of how many "extra" interviewers there will be next year. We still have yet to see whether McMaster will reduce the amount of new interviewers they accept from next years pool so that we still get ~500-600 people or not. 24 votes in 1 day just from premed101 seems pretty high, if they take the usual amount of premeds next year then we might have 700+ people competing for the same amount of spots. So either next years applicants will have a harder time getting an interview if they want to keep the 500-600 number, or next years interviews will be even more compe
  9. Unfortunately this was the only information they were willing to disclose, but judging from previous years it's no longer strictly week to week.
  10. Here's hoping there's some good movement this week. Contacted admissions and they said waitlist is still moving so it isn't over yet!
  11. I really hope that number 3 is the case too, even though the uncertainty is aggravating, a small (maybe silly) part of me won't let go of hope haha.
