UBC MD Interview Invites/Regrets Thread - 2020/21

Technically, they can send regrets tomorrow and leave regular invites to the last. 

Actually I don't think they can because they specifically say that early invites will come out one day before regular invites. If they don't send them tomorrow, then early applicants would have a 3-4 day advantage to book their interview if they wait until monday. Anything is possible though!

True, imagine if they just said after tomorrow that if you haven't gotten an email yet, you won't be receiving an invite this year.

ha, and well ahem - there is a reason we follow this format and just move discussion to another place. Helps people with analysis and keeps things on track.

I am confused now. I am OOP Early Applicant and still haven't heard anything? How is there rejections now happening but I still haven't heard back??

Either there's going to be another wave of early invites sometime tonight (unlikely in my opinion), or you will be receiving a rejection sometime soon. Will it be tonight, tomorrow, or next week? = your guess is as good as mine

I actually read this twice (CARS skill activated LOL) and I am just wondering if rejections were sent out too (but it doesn't make sense since UBC doesn't usually send out rejections and invites concurrently). 

not to say that I know - but schools do change the approach,  and admin systems all the time. What they did in the past may not matter a lot. Systems - even bad systems - can be reassuring, and when they change there is pain. We over analyze everything of course which doesn't make it any better.

Yeah I would agree - this is yet another one of those we are stuck waiting situations.

I applied early and didn't hear anything yet (OOP). I think that means that we're not getting an invite if we don't hear today. What a wild system.

I have resigned myself to this possibility as well (IP early applicant), but I just find it weird that UBC would make us wait for our TFR results and such. The cat's out of the bag, as it were - since we're early applicants and we didn't hear back today (i.e. the day that early applicants heard back), we already know we've been rejected. Seems weird to not just tell us right now, or tonight

In the past there has been a 5:30 pm wave, I'm predicting we might get one tonight?

Hope so, just don't know what it will consist of. Rejections? Continued early invites? Specific rejections (ex. early invite rejections, OOP rejections, IP rejections, continued partial-file-review and ineligible rejections)? 

Who bloody knows lol

My theory is that because this year's interview results are released later but the interviews will still take place around the same time of the year, UBC may have sent offers first to give interviewees enough time to schedule their interview date.

No more theories my heart can't take it :unsure::wacko::ph34r:

Highkey doesn't even sound like "just a theory" - this is super plausible and probably indeed UBC's logic

Ugh, its past 5;30 PDT, il take the silence as a rejection for early apps.

Think so man. Looks like they're just not bothering to tell us our scores or anything until later. Probably because they know it doesn't matter i.e. does not impact the admission process for UBC MD 2025 class

Hope has died a slow and painful death today. Would have been nicer to be told straight up. I wonder why they don’t send invites and rejections at the same time really.
