I have a question for other waitlisters who have been taken off the waitlist recently (late June/early July) and will be attending U of A.

 

Have you all received your orientation package and schedule already? I have been hearing from other people that classes have been filling up and I don't want to end up with classes at really odd times.

 

Thanks in advance

 

If you haven't gotten it yet, call them. I recieved my confirmation that conditional acceptance had been lifted on July 6th. I called them at the end of July (which was when I was supposed to have received the package by in the email), to find out they had missed it somewhere, and hadn't actually mailed it yet.

Obviously you are overqualified for med school, no wonder it took such a long time until a spot opened up and we had no choice but to accept you.

 

Enjoy being top of the class.

 

And protip, people will hate you if you consistently beat them in Smash Brothers. Plus, I doubt you can beat the great Pen Li in the class of 2011.
