  1. Currently playing the waitlist waiting game and found myself pondering about the reasons people might defer from starting their 1L. For those of you who have deferred, or know someone who has, was the reason academic or work related? How common is it for prospective first years to defer for personal reasons such as travel, family, or simply getting cold feet? I suppose this inquire comes from my desire to assess the likelihood of movement on any given waitlist since it appears (based off reading the school forums) that most classes are full. Please correct me if I am wrong in thinking this.
  2. I've suspected this for some time now. It sounds as though they are interested in creating a well rounded class rather than focusing on merit at this point. Therefore, the likelihood of any one applicant being selected is dependent on the kind of student they are losing from the class and whether or not you'd be a good replacement. Since it appears that classes are pretty much full across Ontario and most other schools (at least from reading forums on this website), the question is how much movement can we really expect from now until the start of classes? While I'm relatively new to this process, it seems like this year was a doozy of an application cycle and is in general difficult to compare to previous cycles.
  3. Update? Just curious if you made your decision yet
  4. I was not able to see my regular application status on uoZone for the last 15 minutes, but it has just now reverted to the normal screen. I imagine there may have been some site maintenance going on.
  5. That would be grossly negligent if they indeed did not review some people's applications. I highly doubt thats the case, but if so, those applicants should demand their application fees be refunded. Otherwise, what is the point of paying the fee at all?
  6. It would seem to me that it's reasonable for Uottawa to increase their application fee and hire a couple more people to manage what is evidently an overwhelming amount of applications for them (each year). While it places a greater financial strain on applicants, i'm sure many would value the quicker processing of their application (and the certainty that accompanies it) over a nominal fee increase. Based off previous years, the average number of applications has roughly been around 2,500. Some increase between $20-30 would raise between 50,000 -75,000 for example. Now, the number of people that could be hired with that revenue and the function they would serve in the review process is another question.
  7. "Unnumbered Waitlisted" 3.49 154 Looking forward to that numbered waitlist if we get it. I suppose it is better than a rejection email this morning. However, now were back in limbo until the numbered waitlist comes out 🙄 This experience feels like treading water at night in the ocean with no idea how close land is...or if it will come at all. It'd almost be better to be flat out rejected so one can plan for next cycle with certainty and move forward on other opportunities.
  8. Got the email Cgpa 3.49 L2 ~ 3.8 154 General applicant
  9. Does anyone know if international applications are categorized differently at uOttawa and subsequently reviewed later? Do any schools treat international applications differently with respect to the time of review? Thank you in advance for any responses!
  10. Pretty straight forward question, is it appropriate to include athletic achievements and extensive travel in one's sketch? Can these be considered relevant? The latter would explain a gap in activity from undergrad to current work engagement. Examples: running half-marathons, year-long backpacking trip to Europe, Morocco, SE Asia, Western U.S Thank you for taking a look!
