Anyone have any idea the probability of getting off or the size of the WL? All I can find is data from CMES (Canadian Medical Education Stats) that suggests the WL moves about 50-60 spots. Also does anyone know if UofA rolls the offers out 1-by-1 as people decline, or does it happen in waves at preset dates (eg. the first date being the deadline for initial offers on may 25th)?

Probably next week. This wait is killing me 

Hey guys, I’m IP and was accepted this morning as well. Just posting because I know how hard the wait is and how unsettling it is to have questions that are unanswered. So yes the IP waitlist has alre

Hello friends and future colleagues,  I am an OOP I got accepted off the waitlist yesterday. got the email at 10:23 am also. I will be declining the offer since I got into my first choice in Onta

The U of A does not generally release stats/data about the size of their waitlist, your spot on the waitlist, or how likely you are to get off the waitlist. 

An initial wave will go out approximately a week after the initial acceptance deadline, another wave will go out a week after the second round offer deadline, and so on until all offers have been made and the class is full. At this point you'll get an email saying as such and that it's unlikely that any other offers will be made. 

So the answer to your question is both, waves at first and then 1-by-1 until the class is full. 

Hope that helps.

Probably a stupid question, but how do you know if you've been waitlisted? I'd like to see how it differs from the regular rejection. 

You either get accepted, waitlisted, or rejected. If you go to application website under documents you can download your letter and see what the result is.

In the previous years, the U of A waitlist movement depended on whether you were a 4th year applicant or 2nd/3rd year applicant and your provincial status. However, this year they only interviewed applicants who are anticipating the completion of their degrees so I think there might be overall more movement.

From where did you get the information that the WL moves by 50-60 spots. That means that we have ~50% chance of getting off the WL.  Right?

Does the WL usually move before the May 25th deadline?

Hey everyone, I just noticed that when you open your waitlist offer letter, the file name has numbers. What numbers do you guys have? I think the first number may be your place on the waitlist and the second number how many people were waitlisted. Alternatively, the numbers may mean nothing

Where are these numbers?
