Last year, I was waitlisted at McMaster and was not accepted - I had the button. 

This year I interviewed at Mac and I still have the button. 

I don't think the button means anything 

Sorry, just to clarify - was McMaster your ONLY interview last year and this year?

I've been following this forum for the last two years, just never felt the need to post anything until this whole scandal started. I didn't even get an interview at Mac this year so I have no stake in this. 

 So I went and checked. Only two people said “yes” to the button with only a queens interview. One was an md/PhD student who got accepted earlier which we already established is a criterion for having the button. The second user is aeoaeoaeo,  and I went back to their post and they had said “no” to the button. Phew!

To recap:

Top 100 offered because they usually get offers (70+%).

The rest were placed in a lottery for their spots (including waitlist!). 

The simple conclusion is that they send out the same number of offers anyway, so those with the button may or may not have been in the top 100/won the lottery.

What is the top 100 based on though?

I think they mean that the pre-interview ranking of the 552 people was used, minus the aboriginal applicants. So after aboriginal applicants were removed, the top 100 selected people were automatically given an offer, and the remaining 450ish will be lottery.

someone with high iq explain the relationship between buttons with the lottery then

At this rate, it probs means that CASPer was weighed extremely heavily hence all the people with the button and less than perfect GPA and CARS. The rest are chosen based on a lottery hence a mix of low and high stats but middling CASPer.
