Question about enrollment deadline

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Just got accepted and I was given till March 2nd to either decide if I am enrolling or not.  I was wondering if there was a "provisional" accept option such as the one given through OLSAS because I do not think I will receive replies from Ontario schools that quickly.

 

Thank You

Well. The March 2nd deadline we have is provisional in the sense that you can withdraw after (and lose the deposit). But no, you can't tell them thanks for the offer, you want to sit on it longer. I think this is the reason for having a relatively early accept deadline - they want to know who's serious about attending to give them an idea about class size and composition. If you were just punting on them, they'll know when you don't accept. If they were your lower choice and you later get in another one, they get your deposit money for it.

just out of curiosity, how much is the deposit?

    • I'm not sure what wilful ignorance or carelessness you're talking about? I asked for information, both in the form of opinions and evidence. I shared mine, making no claims of qualifications or even a suggestion that it's something I feel strongly about, because it seems weird to start a thread asking for opinions without going first. 
    • Thank you for sharing, very nice of you! Have you heard anything back regarding a decision? 
    • https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Argument_from_authority You don't need to be an expert to have a discussion or an opinion. It's even okay to have an opinion without being all that knowledgeable about it.  If you have a problem with the argument, engage with it — if it's as flawed as you appeal to authority makes it seem, it shouldn't be hard to knock it down. 
    • pretty sure it's the first one but can't confirm
    •  Ferae, you are failing to address the main issue here, which is a legitimate doubt about your expertise in or extensive knowledge of mental illness. Do you hold an MD, or an advanced degree in psychology or neuroscience or related field? Have you read and carefully considered a body of academic literature regarding the effects of various mental illnesses that may give rise to the need for accommodations? If the answer is no, I would caution you against making broad statements about what "seems likely" to you.  Without expert knowledge of how someone else's mind operates under law school exam settings, it's unjustified for you to assume that they have some advantage over you.  Your willful ignorance, and the carelessness with which you make wild conjectures thereupon, is kind of troubling.
