@ Ehrmantraut

No :( . My friend was and got bumped to 8b. That was the explanation they gave him.
My fingers are crossed for 8b. I would really hate to have to wait till January to start.

Looking forward to meeting you all in July.

I was wondering the same thing. No email yet with instructions. Will keep refreshing my email.

Does that mean you're going...? Or you have to wait and see if you get an official invite then? That can't be fun. Were you one of the people who was invited and then uninvited to 8A to make up for the bilingual class? Hopefully everyone they invited and moved will be accepted into intake 8 this summer. I wonder if there will be an intake C...

Yes I was univited to 8A and put in 8B which I thought would be better for me. My wife's due with our first baby July 18th so I thought 8B would be awesome until I got the email saying I'd be in a "pool of candidates" for it. I guess I should be more careful what I wish for. So in short, I have no idea if it's an actual invite or not. I'd like to think yes because I'm scheduled for OITP and it's only good for 3 months so I assume if I pass I'll be in but who knows.......I won't turn my nose up at a C if I don't make B. Here's hoping for a C in January just in case :thumbsup:
