Any movement on the waitlist or do they not send out waitlist offers this early?

Does that mean only 10 people rejected their initial offers?

Hey guys! I accepted my offer April 1st but recently was accepted to uOttawa and being from Ontario, I've decided to go there. Hoping my spot goes to one of you!

^^ That quoted post reflects the first round of offers made off of the wait list that went out on April 7th. A second round of wait list offers was apparently extended yesterday. I emailed the admissions office yesterday asking how many new offers were made, but I have not heard anything back yet. Obviously I'll post any new wait list information if and when I receive it.

Ah yeah, my bad. Looking back I just assumed they were doing ten at a time for some reason.

 

To Max, I guess you could assume that at least four offers were sent out since Cruizer was #14 and was given an offer on the second round off the waitlist.

Got a response myself and it's 7 offers made.

Guess my hopes and dreams are crushed unless another 24 people pass

Don't be so severe, lots of people move off the waitlist. And what's more, I'm pretty sure there is a special Manitoba-only waitlist that gets made later in the cycle so you'll be among even fewer applicants.

Even if you don't get in this cycle, your hopes and dreams aren't crushed. They're simply put on hold.

arg if they made 17 and there's one person who declined i guess i'm 5th or 6th now. This is a painful experience to wait out being this close.

I'm most likely declining my offer so a spot should open up
