Questions of the waitlist

Recommended Posts

So i'm sadly just below the cut off for admission (if the person who asked admissions was given the right number) so i began to creep info about the waitlist... does anyone know when they start compiling it - i saw last year that it began in march with emails to applicants about their position on it, does anyone know if that is supposed to be happening again? (I can't find out any info on the website either)

I must have missed that post, what did the person who asked admissions say the cutoff was?

I think OP is referring to the early admission cutoff which was found to be 95.648 (it's on the second page of the accepted forum for this cycle).

 

I could be wrong, though.

I'm pretty sure it will be in March again this year. I believe the timeline that we saw for admissions last year is to become their new norm. At least that is my understanding from the applicant bulletin.

Thanks! and sorry for confusion --- i did mean the cut off of 75.648 that was mentioned in earlier posts, if that is the actual cut off i fall just shy so i'm just trying to figure out what my next move should be!

Typically this number drops down to the mid/high 74's by the time the waitlist has been exhausted. Take a look at old accepted and waitlist threads. If your just shy of 75.648 it will be likely that you will get accepted, probably not till late spring though.

    • I felt the same alienation when people talked about their (or really, their parents’) cottages, time shares, vacations, hockey season tickets etc. Seemed like everyone had been to Europe (I know not everyone had but so many people talked about it.) Some people even had boats and horses etc. A few had condos bought for them by their parents and people talked about how their parents were paying their tuition. That was also hard to hear. 
    • Is drinking an Olympic sport? 
    • "Be more interesting" is the best advice I've ever received, the best advice I could ever give, and my constant goal in life. You can never be too interesting. 
    • The two aren't mutually exclusive. I've enjoyed all the activities that I planned to do before applying and have met some great people along the way.
    • I never understood worrying about what's on my fellow classmate's plate. I take my exam. I do the best that I can. If I get a B, I get a B. If i get an A, then yay. I know I didn't lose a shade of a grade because a few people got extra time through accommodation. I lost a shade of a grade because I screwed up. There's no guarantee I don't screw up even if the prof gave me time immemorial.  Legit or illegitimate accommodation doesn't bother me. I'd rather the person who actually needs accommodation get it even if five others are "cheating" the system. It doesn't and shouldn't affect me. Just focus on yourself.
