I guess you could say I was one of the unfortunate applicants who had to deal with the lottery last year. I am thankful for the guaranteed interview opportunity, and thankful that I was able to make the best of it.

Timestamp: 12:00 am

cGPA: 3.95

CARS: 129

CASPer:  ugg must have been ok, but my typing is bad. My name here was supposed to be justanon ..look how that worked out. 

MMI interview thoughts: I didn't think was great, virtual was kinda weird, but nowhere near as godawful as Western and I got an offer there too, which I just can't believe 

Year: UG 2020

Geography: IP

Guaranteed interview from last year: hummmf yes  - tossed into the lottery . I'm thrilled but part of me will never forget the pain of last year and I just wish no one here has to also go through that. Please know that to get this far means you are incredibly talented and please believe in the audacity of hope., (Obama) keeping me going.

Result: Accepted (Hamilton)

Timestamp: 12:00 am (OMSAS) / 8:37 am (Email)

cGPA: 3.87

CARS: 127

CASPer: Thought it went pretty well and had a moderately high typing speed - clearly was my saving grace. 

MMI interview thoughts: Did not feel well about it at all. There was one station in which I repeated the wrong word 4 times in a row and then proceeded to correct myself with another wrong word :) Looks like the other stations really pulled through. 

Year: Just finished 4th year UG. 

Geography: IP

Guaranteed interview from last year: No

This was my only interview and so I'm glad to say that I will be accepting the offer. To those still waiting, good luck and don't lose hope - you got this!

Result: Accepted (Waterloo campus)

Timestamp: 12:00am on OMSAS - 8:40am email

cGPA: 3.94

CARS: 129

CASPer: It went okay, I practiced a lot and got my typing speed up to 60wpm.

MMI interview thoughts: I thought the first one went well enough that I was expecting at least a WL, and the asynchronous redo was absolutely awful. Came out of it fully believing that I blew my chances. 2 stations I completely blanked and rambled nonsense, my answers were awkward and I do not cope well without interviewer feedback. 

Year: Finished UG

Geography: IP

Guaranteed interview from last year: No

I am so grateful for this opportunity, I couldn't have done it without the support of the amazing people I met on here. This is my only offer (and my top choice regardless), so I will be accepting. Best of luck to everyone!

Timestamp: guessing 12:00 am, only checked when I woke up. Email received at 8:36 AM EST.

cGPA: 3.99

CARS: 129

CASPer: must've been half decent bc I'm OOP. felt pretty good, I'm a pretty fast typer and felt pretty comfortable with all of my answers. 

MMI interview thoughts: honestly felt like my best interview this cycle. wasn't really stumped by any questions, thought I had thorough & interesting answers for each q

Year: 4th

Geography: OOP

Guaranteed interview from last year: No

I will most likely be accepting. I'm on the waitlist for one more non-Ontario school that I would prefer over Mac but I don't foresee myself getting off the waitlist there... so Mac it is!! Congrats to all those accepted and for those on the waitlist/rejected, fingers crossed for you too!

Result: Accepted!! (Hamilton)

Timestamp: checked OMSAS when I woke up, just received the email so now I believe it!

cGPA: 3.75 

CARS: 129

CASPer: 80-100 percentile according to Manitoba's OOP pool (is the only thing that got me a Mac interview in the first place!)

MMI interview thoughts:  felt absolutely horrible, was part of the pool that had to repeat the interview. Now that I look back on it I can see some unique elements to my answers, but in the moment it was super stressful and I was mentally prepared for a rejection given my GPA

Year: gap year after UG

Geography: IP

Result: Rejected

Timestamp: 9am ish EST

cGPA: 3.97

CARS: 131

CASPer: Felt good! Had fun

MMI interview thoughts: My interview skills are definitely the weak point of my application and I was so nervous coming into this application cycle. Prepared a lot and thought the questions were genuinely interesting. I didn't really get the chance to talk about my personal experiences that much though, which probably sunk me. Super bummed :(

Year: Master's
