Does anyone knows whether all invites have been send out? Didn’t hear back yet, not sure what that means..

All we know is what med admissions office says: keep waiting until you hear. Your application is valid all the way til April 8th or whenever they send you a rejection letter which is probably the case for 99% ppl still waiting including myself.

Also, please direct these comments to appropriate thread not this one. Not meaning to be picky but for people who are still waiting, any activity on invites/rejects thread causes a mini heart attack..

Essays: Worked on them for a few weeks! 

Year: Finished MSc in 2016. Working research scientist. 

Geography: IP

It's worked out for the MD/PhD stream at other schools for me but posting for stats reasons.  Just goes to show that interviews elsewhere do not guarantee interviews somewhere else. Nor does being competitive in one stream (MD/PhD) equate to being competitive in another (MD). The process is a random one too. Good luck to everyone! Don't give up.
