Consequences of Accepting an Early Offer

Recommended Posts

Some applications asked permission to share offers of admission to other schools.

Would accepting an early offer from one school hurt your chances of receiving an offer from another school later in the cycle?

I think if you accept an offer on OLSAS (assuming the early offer was from an Ontario school, and the other offer(s) you're hoping to  receive are also in Ontario), it automatically withdraws all you from the applicant pool for the other Ontario schools. You should make sure before making a decision.

That happens only if you firmly accept an offer on OLSAS.

You can provisionally accept an offer on OLSAS and leave other applications open.

Provisionally accept and you will lose your deposit on your first offer if you provisionally accept another offer.

My friend lost 2 deposits.

There are a ton of discussions on this issue.

You can provisionally accept until the deadline (sometime in July) then your "provisional acceptance" will change to "firm". You will automatically withdraw from all other "Ontario" schools. However, your applications to non-Ontario are not affected.

You can only have one "provisionally acceptance" at any time. You will lose your deposit if you provisionally/ firm  accept another offer in Ontario.

Do you have to pay a deposit as soon as you provisionally accept? And how long do you have to decide whether or not to provisionally accept an offer from the time you receive it?
