Can we assume that the rejections for the third wave have not come out yet?  React to this post if you haven’t received an email the wait is brutal 

TIME STAMP: 2:03 ET Result: R  GPA:  3.8 OMSAS, unsure of eligibility for wGPA  ECs: no research. Very thin on volunteering/employment/leadership positions. National team and NCAA D1 at

I'm in the webinar and they said first batch of interview invites will be released today. Stay positive everyone and good luck!!

Received an MD invite at 9:54 AM EST!

Edit to include stats for reference: 

GPA:  4.00 wGPA

MCAT: just met cut-offs

ECs: balanced across the OMSAS categories, range of short to long-term activities I think, personally didn't have a particular focus and dabbled in different areas/areas I was interested in. For research, had one co-author pub, an abstract book "pub", a co-author paper in submission, NSERC-USRA, local and national conference presentations and co-author on an international conference presentation. 

Essays: wrote them day before and morning of OMSAS deadline. So.. I was not particularly confident in them and this is a pleasant surprise! I made sure to include one essay on research in my BPEs and in my ABS statements (not sure if that is significant or not). Made sure to convey my experiences as profound as possible while touching on UofT's clusters

References: only know one was great and I don't know about the other two but likely net positive   

Year: 4th year undergrad

Time to get on that 2 weeks of prep!

Invite for March 7th. See other post for stats. 

 

first time getting an invite in 3 years. My essays were complete garbage the two years prior but this year they are so much better. I actually couldn't believe what I wrote the first 2 cycles I applied and at those moments in time, I actually thought they were good lmao.

ECs: Research heavy, 3 co-author papers, 2 conferences, CGS-M, NSERC USRA, graduate school Ecs and other community activities that I genuinely did for myself.

Year: Completed Msc, currently working

3rd cycle applying and finally getting interviews. This year, really focused on getting solid reference letters and worked a lot on the essays.

Hey I have similar stats and was wondering if you had gotten an interview elsewhere? Just out of curiosity, you don't have to answer if you're uncomfortable doing so
