What Are Oop Chances For Post-Interview, Compared In Ip?


Recommended Posts

Post interview, all applicants are evaluated the same way. There is only ONE queue for all applicants not 2 separate queues for IPs and OOPs.  Seats are filled by the ranking of applicants but OOPs will have a ceiling of 29 seats. If there are 29 OOPs selected already, the next available seat will go to the next IP on the list even though there are other OOPs before him/her. This is the reason why you sometimes see less than 29 OOPs in an entering class because there were some IPs who scored higher than the next available OOP.

Thank you, that helps a lot! :) Do we know how much the ranking is influenced by MMi, GPA, NAQ, MCAT, etc?

There were 20 OOP in last entering class means there were 9 IP applicants scored higher than the next available OOP.  Actually there were 46 OOP that got offered but 26 of them declined. The next 9 OOP on the list (the 47th to 55th OOP on the list) just didn't score as high as the IP on the ranking list. Therefore, the 9 seats were also filled by IP.

Does UBC send out more than 29 offers because they know that a large majority of OOP decline the offer? Or do they send out 29 and then put the other competitive OOP on a waitlist?

They sent out an initial 29 offers and put others on a waitlist. The additional 17 offers went to people on the waitlist as the original invitees rejected their offers.
