$500 Commitment Fee

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Can anybody answer whether or not paying the $500 commitment fee to hold my seat affects my applications to other law schools? I have until November 28 to pay the fee and many of the other schools I have applied to don't send out offers until December/January. TRU is definitely a consideration for me (so I don't want to lose the option), but it isn't my top choice and I don't want to negatively impact offers from other schools. 

 

Thank you!

Pretty sure only Ontario has the linked system, other schools don't talk to each other cause it would be a lot of work to do so.

Technically, TRU has the right to inform other law schools (it's somewhere in the fine print though I can't remember exactly where). However, there is no indication that they have ever done this is the past or plan to in the future.

I don't believe it affects your offers from other schools (that would be pretty shitty if it did). But I've already paid my commitment fee and I've received an offer since then. Really annoying that it was due so early though (mine was due Nov. 22nd).

Just wanted to add that I spoke with UVic admissions about this, and they said that if you accept an offer from TRU, it does not impact whether or not you receive an offer from UVic. But they also let me know that if you accept an offer from one Ontario law school, you'll be automatically removed from consideration from other Ontario law schools.

If i've already put in my 500$ commitment fee, am i able to withdraw my acceptance for a different school? 

Obviously I wouldn't get my 500$ back, but is this possible?

    • Yup, those Harbourview Condominiums, they seem nice in pics I'm hoping they are in person too lol. Thank you so much for the quick reply and advice, it's very helpful!
    • Hey, are you talking about that complex (might be a duplex not sure) that's right past the bridge? People over-exaggerate the un-safe environment of that side of the bridge. When people say they it's sketchy, they're always referring to like Indian road and Detroit street, which are only 'sketchy' because some houses are boarded up. The complex you're looking at is like a 10 minute walk from that area, and even that area isn't honestly that bad. My opinion is totally objective btw, I've been in Windsor for 22 years and I live in more of a 'suburb' on the opposite side of the city. My advice is that when you go, if you feel like what you see at first sight is safe, then you'll be fine. What you see is exactly what you get, and it is the better part of that neighbourhood. 
    • @madmax7 Hey, do you have any insight on 3000 Sandwich St?? Looking into living there for next year but have read mixed things on here about that area. Going to be heading down in a week or 2 to see firsthand but just wanted some insight from someone who knows the city... online the units seem pretty okay but don't want to live in a sketchy area lol 
    • Yeah, thanks for your reply!  I guess what I’m asking is like: my school has an intro to immunology class (300 level) and I couldn’t find an equivalent U of A class and since I got an A in it, I would want that included. I’m worried that they wouldn’t include it because there isn’t an equivalent one. I’m not really familiar with how they go about calculating GPA and stuff.    Thanksr for your time 
    • Figured while you're waiting for an answer, I can jump in and answer a question as a Windsor resident, even though I won't be starting law until August.  Question 5: The Windsor bus system is I would say more reliable than other places. The busses usually run year-round, throughout all types of weather. The only times the busses usually don't run, are when the school is also closed. So in extreme cases basically!
