So I called my department and apparently they got the results last night? She told me I was an alternate and the only alternate within my department..? Does anyone know the chances?

So I spoke to my department again, and they told me that out of 15 people in our department who applied this year, 3 got a scholarship and 2 others got waitlisted. So if you are waitlisted, it still means you did pretty good. They also told me that there is a fair chance of getting it if you're waitlisted, depending on your position on the list. 

But is this list based on your institution? Department? Or category?? Do you know?

I've been asking the same thing:

Does anyone know how the waitlist work? Are everyone ranked together, or is it by department/institution/committee? So e.g. if a biology student at UBC declined their scholarship and I'm in physics at McGill and am next in line on the overall ranking, do I get the scholarship? Or does a student in my department/institution/committee have to decline and only then I get the scholarship?

I think its definitely at least by committee cause that's how we were ranked, but I don't know about the institution balance...

I don’t understand why the process of this isn’t transparent... I asked my department and they said they’ll find out for me, but I guess we’ll see

To people who had applied in previous years. The ranking is within a committee? 

Yes, and it should be in the mailed notice

The process this year seems very disorganized.

Based on the auto-reply that we have received via email, our rankings should be emailed in mid April. So, I believe that it's another letter.
