I was given until November 17th to pay the commitment fee - likely a result of the date the offer was received

Accepted today. 

GPA:3.75 or 3.8

LSAT:165

Master's degree (doesn't count to gpa, but it's an EC, i guess?)

 

 

I don't really want to ask admissions this, but does paying the commitment fee preclude you from receiving or accepting offers from other universities? I like the idea of going to TRU, but I applied to a few other universities that might not get back to me before the end of the month when my commitment fee would be due.

Hey, I think you can accept the offer and then withdraw if you get into somewhere else. The downside would be that you lose your deposit

I received mine both by email and by letter a few days later, if that's helpful :) I don't think they use the Education Planner BC for any correspondence.
