Got off the waitlist today! Time stamp 2:05pm. This was my second time applying (waitlisted 4th quartile last year)!    GPA: 85.4  MCAT: 509 Interview: I think I did really well overa

I just got off the waitlist! Regina site. Result: waitlisted (1st quartile, then accepted) Gpa: 87% Mcat: 505 Degree: UG Interview: went well I thought, except 1 question was

Sounds like waitlist movement is going to be minimal moving forward. Is anybody interested in making a prep group for next years application cycle? We could all do some interview prep together.

Are there the same number of people in each quartile as last year? Do we know how many people came off the list in the past?

OOP wait list is slightly shorter than last year's which had 45. IP is also shorter than last year's which had 102 but I don't know how much shorter. Only 24 people declined their offer last year and that's combining OOP, IP, and AAP. Seven people deferred in 2020 while only 5 had deferred in 2019. If you want to look at the data, I have the link at the bottom. Ignore the success rate numbers from 19/20 though, they're broken for all of the schools including USask for the 19/20 cycle.

Really useful thanks. Waitlisted for first quartile and wondering there’s even a chance with these numbers

Waitlisted for first quartile

IP or OOP? Great odds for OOP if you're in the 1st quartile. IP depends on how big the total wait list is this year and how many people defer for next year.

Has anybody emailed to ask about where exactly they sit on the waitlist? I know I'm in the first quartile (IP) but I'm not sure how many people are above/below me. I don't want to email them if that's already been done by somebody else, with no success. I suppose it doesn't help much to know anyways, but I'm just going crazy waiting/worrying.

Just got off the waitlist with an offer to the Regina site! Timestamp 4:03, I'll post my stats below!

Result: Waitlisted (1st Quartile) then offer to Regina campus

GPA: 86

MCAT: 509

Location: IP

Degree: UG 

Interview: I felt 4 of the stations went really well, one was okay, and one I felt like I could have done much better in hindsight. 

Good luck to everyone else on the waitlist, being patient sucks and it's so hard but please have hope. Thanks to everyone for the info and updates on this forum!

Really hoping that there is some kind of good news tomorrow with the weekly update they are sending out (not sure if that is tomorrow, but I assume it is).

same, losing my mind waiting

 

We didn't get one last year until middle of the second week on the OOP waitlist. So I wouldn't be too surprised if they didn't send anything tomorrow despite mentioning weekly updates. I hope for the sake of everyone's sanity they do provide some specifics to folks on the waitlist.
