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?

    • sorry and i realized one more thing- a lot of my courses (fairly content heavy) dont show up on the alberta transfer credit search tool, has that happened to anyone and their course still got transferred? thanks
    • 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
