Historically, from what I have read in the waitlist threads from 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, not that I was obsessed with finding out this info, acceptances are generally not sent to everyone who are on the 'good waitlist' in all streams. There was one instance in which someone said their friend was called off the bad waitlist in the French stream, but a commenter said they were good waitlisted on the French stream and they weren't called (a troll on a public forum? how unheard of!).  

To be honest, getting waitlisted was a struggle to accept at first, considering this was the only school at which I interviewed. However, I've treated it as a rejection, and have begun MCAT studying. Who's with me on this? 

Wow that is quite some dedicated digging! 

For morale, a waitlist is an acceptance, only it is conditional on someone else declining their offer. But for practical purposes, I agree it is better to treat it as a rejection and move on. Good luck on your MCAT studying and waitlist movement!

I got in. I was expecting a call and checked my email after seeing someone on here post that they had an email and no call. I'm still in shock.  3.955 GPA. For those looking at the timestamp stu

I just called their office. I believe it was Diane who picked up.  She said the class is not full and they still have a number of calls to make next week as Chantal is STILL away. She said Chanta

Me! I'm currently studying for the MCAT too, while retaking a prereq course (summer classes are boring, but at least I get to do it from home lol).

Does anyone know if they divide the good and bad waitlists by interview score, or is it by ranking? For example is it everyone who got an interview score of 3.5 and 3.0 are given good WL, and less than 3.0 are given bad WL? Or is it something like Applicants ranked 117-300 are good WL and 301-475 bad WL? Just curious.

When I emailed Chantal last year she said the waitlist offers would start the day after the deadline to accept/decline offers received on May 9th, so the 24th (8th and 23rd for this year).

Hello everyone. So I was waitlisted as well.. 

applied to the MSc Nursing program at uOttawa for the fall semester. BScN at uOttawa as well. When I called the admissions department they were unable to provide much details about the waitlist since they didn’t know too much about it. Anyone else in the same situation?

Were they able to provide you with any information? What did you ask about?

Nothing helpful. I asked about the chances, when the waitlist will start moving, when it ends but they provided very limited information. I was wondering if I should just think of this as a rejection since it’s suvh a competitive program
