I got no idea what a top ranked candidate means. I thought they wouldn't tell us about waitlist positions. Like is top ranked within the top three on the waitlist? I feel like being top 10 or top 5 wouldn't mean much on the waitlist unless you are literally within the top two.

That's what I thought. But of course it also states that they can't reveal our spot on the waitlist so I guess we'll never know lol.

I think it depends on what program you applied to. For example MLS list moves pretty fast so even top 5 or 10 may have a shot. I looked at the 2017 thread and there were posts from people who got into MLS in mid July (4th round).

I also got an email this morning saying I'm a "top-ranked candidate on the waitlist". But what does this mean?!? Did everyone on the waitlist get this email?

Hi, I recently got accepted to chiropody and i'm waiting for ultrasound. I was wondering if you guys could help me out there. Basically, there was this post on a different forum saying how do you think it is a dying field because other provinces like Quebec and Alberta have decided to join the profession in favor of specialized doctors. So I was wondering what peoples opinions or views were on this topic? or even better, if someone from chiropody who recently graduated had any insight? Is it really a field where it's so hard to find jobs that it's not really safe to do it?

I don't know about chiropody after but during study it is very intense program and prepare you very well for the job .....

Actually, I heard bad reviews about ultrasound - that it doesn't cover a lot of topics like others colleges (vascular, musculoskeletal., pediatric), they teach only abdominal & obstetrics/ginegocogy , also many students had issues during clinical practice... but it is shorter program...

Although, Michener's reputation is very good generally...

I only got "You are still on the waitlist for this program". No mention of top-ranked candidate. Maybe this means you have better chance of getting in ;) Best of luck!

My MLS waitlist email didn't say I was a "top candidate" so I imagine you still have some hope :)

With the class sizes so small, does anyone have any numbers on how many people actually graduate?
