  1. If it helps, I'll likely have to accept another offer unless I'm given an offer before the 25th (which seems unlikely)
  2. Do you know if a good chunk of the offers go out before the 2-week deadline? I have another offer but Ottawa is my first choice and I'm wondering if the waitlist will have moved enough to get to me.
  3. Time Stamp: 9:06am Result: Good WL (I think) GPA: 3.95 Stream: English Year: Finished 4th year undergrad Interview Thoughts: Thought it was pretty good but felt bad about a couple questions
  4. Does anyone know what % of people get off the Mac waitlist? I just want to know how to react if I see that WL on May 11
  5. Thanks for your reply, I read old threads and came to the same conclusion. Do you have any idea why Ottawa puts so many people on the "good waitlist?" I've heard that it's up to 250-300 people on it. Isn't that kind of excessive considering that usually there's only 85-90 people who get in off the waitlist?
  6. Out of curiosity anyone know what the pre-interview weighting of GPA is? Does 50% sound accurate?
  7. Thanks, that is a great resource. I've also gotten this from their website: Following the interview, preliminary rank order lists are prepared based on a combined score using the cGPA and the interview performance (a poor interview may not be ranked). In the event of ties in the final scores, candidates with the highest cGPA will be ranked higher. The admissions committee may take other factors into consideration when ranking each candidate. Does this suggest that post-interview, it's a 50/50 weighting?
  8. Time Stamp: 4:24 Invite/reject: regrets IP/OOP: IP SWOMEN (Y/N): Y 2YGPA: 3.96 MCAT (CHEM/CARS/BIO/PSYCH): 129/130/132/128 Essays (X/8): 8/8 Feeling pretty gutted, not gonna lie. Spend a lot of time on those essays and not sure where to improve. Congrats to everyone with interviews.
  9. Anyone know what the post-interview odds are at UOttawa? How many interviews, how many seats and how much wait-list movement? Can't find these numbers anywhere online .
  10. Anyone know what kind of format UOttawa is? MMI or panel? Also when are interviews traditionally held?
  11. Man looking at that chart posted above, crazy that in some years the first batch of interviewees had 44 days to prepare, and in some they had 16.
  12. I really thought it would be today...now I truly have no idea. It's hard to do meaningful interview prep when you don't know if you even have an interview so let's hope we get decisions from all schools sooner rather than later.
  13. So 2nd Wednesday of the month...it's certainly possible it's today. What time do they typically come out?
  14. Do we know if it's used as a cut-off, or if it's worth a certain percentage? I know it's not stated anywhere explicitly but there's always some high quality speculation on these boards lol
