bruh GPA isn't everything. if you'll notice from last year's stats, The grades avg/mode actually dropped a bit between the group invited for interviews and those actually accepted.     McGill is pre

Felt fine after the interview even confident. Now that I've had 4 days to think over my answers, I'm probably wondering if they're going to admit me as some sort of experiment, trying to see if someon

For reference: Last year most (if not all) rejections were sent January 19th and acceptances were sent January 20th (I received mine that afternoon) if I have my dates correct. This year it seems they

Just to clarify about the wait listed interviews: last year everyone who I saw wait listed ended up getting an interview with the med-p, and indeed several of us were accepted without being wait listed again.

 

I don't believe they interview wait listed people later in the cycle because they feel the original cohort interviewed badly. McGill tries to interview as many as their resources allow and sometimes they're interested in you, but just don't have the space within the first round. (It's a pretty large operation to prepare for).

 

Your chances of getting an interview has nothing to do with the language you requested. French and English interviews are conducted simultaneously. There were also French interviewees in the wait listed cohort who were accepted last year, so don't stress about your language choice.

 

On the topic of target dates... Isn't it a good thing you got your decisions earlier than expected? Less time to be anxious about it all?

Do you know when do they usually contact the wait-listed candidates?

As tameimpala said, it varies. They'll contact you as soon as space becomes available for the Feb slots, otherwise there might be a wave of invites at some later date. I got an invite a week after the interviews finished, basically just long enough for me to give up hope entirely.

 

Make sure to check your Minerva or email regularly.

Does anyone know if interviewing on the last day would be a disadvantage in any way? My interview is on the last time slot of Feb 18th but I'm worried by then their expectations are going to be much higher due to having already heard so many good answers by then :S 

Not at al! As soon as you're invited for an interview, your chances are as good as anyone!

Haha. No I'm on interview waitlist, just trying to get a rough idea when I should be expecting to hear something 

 

lol

best not to think about the system or try to predict things at this point because you can't. Just go about your life and to check your email once a day (emails get sent around 10PM +/- some amount of minutes).
