Accepted my offer on Tuesday after many years of applying. Hopefully this gives hope to those on the wait list and those with low GPA's. Timestamp: June 4 10:43AM PST Accepted SMP (3rd choic

anybody received any news lately? 

I'm also on the waitlist and can only speculate. I think the first round of waitlist offers is mostly given to highly ranked waitlisters (usually OOPs given their pre-interview cutoffs) and also

Just wanted to post this to wish everyone on the waitlist the best of luck.  You guys are ALL rock stars.  You are all very much qualified to receive an offer (as being waitlisted basically means you are accepted), it's just that the seats are so darn limited.  I am sending each and every one of you positive vibes and good thoughts!  I hope the majority of you hear exciting news within this week, either from UBC or other schools or both (:D !) -- and hey, if not this week, then next round of offers coming after!

You are all champions, please never forget that.

BEST OF LUCK !!!!

Does anyone know how the process works ? Will the blog be updated at the start of the day that offers are sent out ? Is there a time estimate based on previous years when they’re sent out? So nervous - fingers crossed for all of us !

In 2017, I saw that second round offers came in around 4pm but I did not find anything on last year!

Probably a low chance of getting off waitlist into VFMP then right? As majority of people put that as their 1st choice :(

I’m not certain but I think people have matched into VFMP in the second round of offers at least. Might be harder for subsequent rounds. But about 89% of the class gets their first site preference.

The majority put VFMP as first choice, but it also has the majority of spots. And, I would expect that many people who are OOP (and therefore more likely to turn down a UBC offer) got into VFMP too, so I am sure there will be spots.
