didn't the OP say they said "sometime around"?

LOL yes, the e-mail said sometime around Jan 27th. No particular date. You don't need a screenshot because that is literally what it said.

As you guys all get going with what will feel like a rollercoaster of emotions regardless of whether you receive and invite or not, I just want to congratulate you all for all your accomplishments, as

Yeah of course! I had a 3.83 GPA when applying but I unfortunately had a really rough semester and so my GPA dropped to 3.69 which was below the 3.7 cutoff for the french stream. So they unfortunately

I just emailed them and they said this, I think what people were getting before as well: “I wish to inform you that candidates will receive the status of application by e-mail at the end of January 2021.”

I got the same response and its weird how they said "at" instead of "by" which made me think maybe this friday but who tf knows lol.

ha - don't over thinking it :) By putting it near the end they just cover their bases. No one is going to complain if it comes out early but if it is late - well pain and suffering!

These things are a lot less organized than people may think. A lot of it when you boil it down is just it is really hard to get the necessary people together, and random things in the office can change dates (I always say these are critical dates for us but if you work in the admin office your life still has to go on and that means vacations, illness or personal time etc.).

Anyone in the french stream get an R?

Did you guys also get "Il arrive que des places se libèrent durant le processus de sélection pour les entrevues. Dans un tel cas, si vous êtes la prochaine personne sur la liste, nous pourrions communiquer avec vous, par téléphone ou par courriel, pour vous convoquer à une entrevue." ?

Invite/Rejection: R
Time Stamp: 12:42
Location: IP
Stream: English
cGPA: 3.93
Current year: 3rd
ECs: Paid research, posters, research grant, full scholarship, lots of employment, volunteering and clubs kinda weak. 

Casper and Snapshot: didn't do snapshot and barely prepped for CASPer but read that **DELETED** book, my friends say I'm good at giving advice lol, idk

Insight:

I'm sure there are weaknesses in my app, but I just witnessed my entire friend group of 3.9-4.0 GPAs, and super strong ECs get rejected. This process feels so random I don't even know what to say, I'm speechless...

Invite/Rejection: Rejection 
Time Stamp: 12:45 pm
Location: IP
Stream: English
cGPA: 4.0
Current year: UG complete
ECs:   Above average.

Casper and Snapshot: Did not complete snapshot. Honestly I felt my casper went well lol,  I was able to tie a lot questions with personal experiences, evaluate different perspectives, and the feedbacks I got from others while practicing were all positive. I also improved my typing speed from 35WPM to 65ish this year. 

 I would have never applied to any school that uses casper if I knew my quartile ranking before submitting applications and save myself all the application fees :(.
