  1. Late adding this, but for stat purposes: Time Stamp: 8:40 am EST Result: Accepted GPA: 3.94 Stream: English Year: Finished MSc in the fall Interview Thoughts: Mixed feelings. Some parts felt okay, but there were a few questions where the interviewers had to interrupt to rephrase so that I understood correctly. All to say that how you think it goes isn't necessarily a good representation of how the final results will play out! Will be declining my offer in favour of another school. Good luck to those on the WL!
  2. Declined my offer at MUN yesterday in favour of Dal (NB resident). Happy for those receiving waitlist movement!
  3. I think that is once a deposit is made. My understanding is that you cannot have a deposit placed at more than one school for over 48 hours. I think the deadline to accept an offer from MUN is a week after the letters were sent out.
  4. Do we really have until May 19th to answer them? This is how I interpret my letter, but I'm surprised we're given that much time. Just want to double check that I'm understanding this correctly and not throwing away my seat by waiting till other letters are sent out.
  5. My acceptance letter also said that because of COVID students that were in a graduate program and were not able to finish their degree before the July 31st deadline can apply for a deferral, so there may be more given out this year than usual. I am not sure what they would say in terms of personal/family reasons, but this year is certainly unlike previous ones.
  6. Accepted! - IP (NB) GPA: 4.0 MCAT: 507 Research-based MSc complete, lots of volunteering, varsity athlete, 10+ years working throughout school. Congrats to those accepted, and best of luck to everyone else! My last time applying was three years ago and my MCAT was atrocious (496). I completely gave up hope and started looking at other career options. From my experience, the most important part of the process is BELIEVING IN YOURSELF. Set goals, dream big, and be confident!! It wasn't easy, let me tell you, but not much worth celebrating comes easily. Don't give up if this
  7. Oof, that's rough. Really hoping we aren't waiting till the end of the month. I'm guessing it'll be around the 16th or 18th. Fingers crossed for sooner rather than later!
  8. Hey! No worries at all. I actually just checked my email and I received my acceptance at the end of April when I applied. Unfortunately, I am not certain if the committee uses a rolling admissions process or not, though it kind of sounds that way. That said, I would still guess that the earliest admissions offers are sent sometime in mid/late April.
  9. Hi! I don't know too much in terms of detail, but I completed my MSc with IMS and I know I applied early and received my acceptance in May. I was also able to contact potential supervisors and speak with them early on to see if anyone I was interested in working with was taking on MSc students. Having a supervisor in mind or secured can help with your application, as far as I know (again, speaking from personal experience, so take this with a grain of salt). As well, the IMS department is really helpful and responsive. I would suggest emailing them if you had any concerns. My guess would
  10. I would guess invites for March 7th and 21st will go out around February 12th and 26th, respectively.
  11. I would guess that it will be tomorrow. Fingers crossed, and good luck!
  12. I would say that it will be tomorrow or Wednesday. They told me "early in the week" via email, but I also know they are allowing graduate students to provide proof of degree completion until Tuesday at 4:30. That said, I would guess they will wait until this information is submitted before they send out interview information. I would also guess that the person who posted stats may have been trolling to stress others out.
