We don't! From a speculative view, about 40ish spots

This data is in UBC's published admission stats. There's far more wait list movement for OOP applicants. Only 7 IP candidates turned down a seat in 2020. It was higher in previous years and is usually around 20. For OOP, usually 25-30 people turn down their offers.

You can find the data on the last page of UBC's admission stats:

What have the social events this year been like? Not asking in any snarky way-  curious about what your class has been doing.

For the class as a whole, mostly virtual and not as many events as your class had. At my site, we've had a lot of virtual (and some socially distanced) events with great turnout. With summer around the corner and hopefully if things get better, looking to go on some trips with a few of my classmates

Not the original posters (I am exam free and they aren't yet) but here is a response I wrote in another thread.

Felt like garbage after I did mine.

In one station, the interviewer asked me a question and my brain had a complete fart about what one term meant so I asked him to repeat the question 3 times, then on the third time the bell rang and I just sat there in regret. In another, I got super intimidated by the interviewer for some reason and they were quite stone faced so I gave pretty bad and like one sentence responses to a complicated question. Then we just sat there after he had nothing more to ask. Finally, in another station, I spent all 8 minutes on the main question and literally concluded with "I need more info" as the bell rang. 

I really don't know how I got in- I wasn't waitlisted either.

 I'll see myself out of this AMA now :)
