I applied last May under the old system, was interviewed in July, nominated in Sept. Then I was asked to pick 3 countries and was invited in Nov. to the wait list for one of them. So I was a "hybrid" applicant. I completed all the medical, legal, passport, etc. and was told today I would not be invited from the wait list. although I completed all medical tasks in Jan., I got no response until recently, asking for more information and did not get medically cleared until last Friday. (I have no medical issues.) I felt a little jerked around and will probably not re-apply.
