Congratulations everyone!  Im out of reactions but I’m so happy for everyone on the HWL. That must have been one stressful night once the HWL calls stopped going out yesterday, but glad to see it all

Hey everyone, got a call @1:59 today... off from NWL at Windsor. Honestly been a longgggggggggggg process and it’s finally done! Hopefully someone else gets off NWL too. 

Just an FYI to calm peoples nerves; they were calling people off the high waitlist into Windsor straight away last year and there were quite a few people from the normal waitlist who got accepted so t

@anonymouspanda Last year I think I was the only person to post a rejection. It can be tough, especially at a school like Western that directly rejects a smaller amount of applicants due to some getting low waitlist.

I was directly rejected last year too. Felt terrible and wondered for the longest time if I messed up the summarization portion. It definitely is v v hard to post a rejection so I appreciate you for that. Just gotta keep at it.

Yeah, after I made a post I had a couple of people DM me that they had gotten rejected, there are def a lot more than you would think. Good luck getting off the WL this year!!!

Does anyone know what proportion of the normal waitlist gets accepted?

I've seen someone on this forum say that 1/2 or 1/3 of normal waitlist gets accepted. I'm not sure how that'll change this year 

Last year they gave those on the high wait list the Windsor campus pretty much right off the bat so I'm assuming then that the waitlist moved a lot less (?) since the Windsor campus has 38 seats with some of those seats already gone by those who selected Windsor as their first choice.

Please correct me if I'm wrong

This is accurate. Last year was apparently weird in that way though so really not sure what will happen this year!

I was low waitlisted. I'm devastated. Seems like im the only (?) swomen app who is in that position. Truly devastated.

I'm so sorry. I feel pretty confident in saying that you are not the only one. A lot of applicants don't go on premed101 from the get go or they come on here, but don't have an account to post with. If you got an interview this year, you can also get an interview next year. Sending out positive vibes your way today @swomenapp

It may feel that way now, but I guarantee you aren't the only one. People generally don't like to post bad news online, especially if they feel alone. There are always very few low WL and rejection posts for Western for some reason.

Do you guys happen to know if last year any of the accepted applicants with "unspecified" campus also ended up at Windsor?

I'm not entirely certain - I'm sorry, I know that isn't helpful.

completely anecdotally - usually accepted unspecified end up at their first choice campus. I imagine they list you as unspecified because you are currently listed at your second choice campus, but they know a certain proportion will decline their offer and there will likely be room for you at your first choice (if that makes sense). Waitlisters will be informed of which campus their offer is attached to when they get the call. Again this is all going off of experience, and I'm unaware if there is any firm stats/info surrounding this specifically. 

hope that helps! :)
