Accepted/Rejected/Waitlisted??? (for current applicants)


Recommended Posts

Date: 9 May

Result: low waitlist

2BY: 3.94 ish, can't remember

MCAT: 515 (130, 129, 130, 126)

Interview: left in tears so can't really say I'm surprised.

 

Trying my hardest to be positive about this. There's a reason things happen the way they do. Going to keep trying, hopefully I'll see you lovely folks as either fellow interviewees or better yet, med 1s!

 

Best of luck out there!!!

Result: Accepted to Windsor campus (Normal Waitlist) Time stamp: June 6th 2017, not sure what time the call came as it went to my dad... I'm currently out of the country! 2yr GPA: 3.97

Time Stamp: 10:50 AM

Result: Normal waitlist

2BY: ~3.9
MCAT: Just above cut-offs
Interview: Walked out feeling okay (i'm normally a catastrophic thinker lol), flip-flopped a little, but it was overall pretty mediocre. Didn't make that great of a connection with the panel. They were cold, but polite. Barely cracked smiles, and I'm usually pretty good at extracting a chortle or some sort of huff. Did seem impressed at some points, although I made sure to be humble, too. Received a few comments at the end about being a good fit for the school which was reassuring, but I guess they didn't mean much. Definitely stumbled on one ethics question and gave a few meh answers. 

 

Welp. Praying for Windsor. Congrats to those who got acceptances!! Also, check your junk email because that's where I found mine. I'll be joining y'all on the support thread...

Time Stamp:10:47 AM

Result: Low waitlist

2BY: 3.87
MCAT: Met cutoffs
Interview: This was my second time interviewing at Western, so I was a lot less nervous. I though I had good rapport with my interviewers, and made 'em laugh twice. I had high hopes walking out of there, but in the following days I replayed my interview over and over in my head, cringing at all the minor faux pas I made, and kicking myself for not mentioning this and that. Still, I thought I made a good impression overall.

 

Feeling pretty shitty right now. Congrats to those who got / will get accepted, and best of luck to those on the normal waitlist!

Time Stamp: 10:50 AM (eastern time)

Result: Normal waitlist

2BY: ~3.96
MCAT: 520 (129/129/131/131)

Interview: Felt good about it, but in retrospect realised I should have explored both sides more and been less firm about some matters. I went in with zero panel prep due to personal struggles at the time, so in this case I suppose my strong social skills (or so I thought) + lack of prep must have fallen short of an acceptance/high waitlist! Prep well future applicants, and congrats everyone :D If all goes as planned, I won't be staying on this waitlist, good luck to my fellow normal waitlisters.

Result: Accepted to London campus 


Timestamp: 12:12 pm 


wGPA: 3.99 conditional (this year is 3.97)


MCAT: 515


Interview: Thought it went terrible honestly. The only time I felt it went well was .02 seconds after leaving the interview room, and then it was downhill from there


Year: 5th year UG


Geography: SWOMEN


 


I don't think I have ever been so excited in my life. Good luck to those on the waitlist! And if you aren't successful this year, keep trying! And just know that a bad GPA/MCAT isn't the end of the world! I really messed up my third year and my cGPA was only 3.72 this application cycle. And I wrote the MCAT 3 times. Just keep pushing if this is what you really want!

2YGPA: 3.81

MCAT: 513 (126/129/130/128)

Interview: Felt fairly good afterwards but after lots of over analyzing I wasn't so sure it went well. Turns out I should've stuck with my initial gut feelings towards it!

Year: Last year of MSc

Geography: IP, not SWOMEN

 

Just goes to show you that's it's not ALL about the stats. I assumed I was going into the interview near the bottom of the list due to MCAT scores that just made the cutoffs and not having a 3.9+ GPA (my cGPA is 3.69 so I just felt lucky to even get one interview at all after complete rejections last cycle and rejections everywhere else this cycle). I felt okay after my interview so I was expecting to get somewhere on the wait list, especially after seeing such high stats posted in the interview thread. Clearly, the interview is incredibly important so to anyone who will be applying in the future or didn't quite make it this year, do not feel discouraged if your stats aren't perfect. It is possible to get into medical school with a sub-3.9 GPA and decent MCAT scores. All you need is one chance :)

Result: Accepted to Unspecified Campus (Preference: London)

Timestamp: ~12pm - my timestamps are messed up on my email

2YGPA: 3.98 (conditional - this year is 3.99)

MCAT: 35(13/11/11)

Interview: Thought I didn't do too great! I said so many weird things - overanalyzed the whole thing for months after and convinced myself I'd be low WL - ecstatic that it's otherwise.

Year: 5th year of UG

Geography: IP, not SWOMEN

 

I just want to say - if anyone is doubting that they'll ever receive an offer, especially in Ontario, PM me. My first year GPA was 2.99 and I almost didn't apply to Ontario because I never thought I had a shot (I applied to USMD). Western was my only interview.

Time Stamp: 12:18AM EST

Result: Accepted!! (London)

2BY: ~3.94
MCAT: 13BS:10PS:11VR

Interview: Made the interviewers laugh a couple times, they asked questions about my EC's and seemed interested. Still convinced myself it was super average/bad during the wait but think it went really went in hindsight. 

 

Good luck to everyone on the waitlist!!!

Result: Low wait list (reject)


Timestamp: 10:47 pm


wGPA: ~3.9


MCAT: 519


ECs: Emphasis on research, though no pubs.  Some volunteering, a little leadership, few awards.


Interview: Definitely could have improved some answers, but felt overall left a good impression at first.  On the other hand, some of my answers that I thought were good probably came off as rambling.


Year: 4th year


Geography: IP


 


Non-SWOMEN


Would love to kill all three of the panel interviewers.

I will be accepting this offer and hoping that I won't have to move out of London because the bus stop to Western is on my front lawn. This was my first time applying to medical school because I spent almost my entire life wanting to become an optometrist.
