Accepting offers

Recommended Posts

I went to decline one of my offers on OLSAS and now the system appears to be updating. I need to firm accept the school I wish to go to still, but i no longer seem to have access to any of the offers on OLSAS. The deadline is tomorrow and everything is closed!! Suggestions??

Screenshot the site and check back later. Worst comes to worst, you can email the school tomorrow to say you'd like to firm accept, but OLSAS is down. 

People know glitches happen, and they won't hold it against you. No law school is going to give away your spot at 8 am on Tuesday before they check their emails. 

My year, OLSAS crashed the day applications were due, and everyone freaked out thinking they wouldn't get to apply. OLSAS extended the deadline, and we all got to put our applications in. I know it's stressful and it feels like a huge deal, but try not to let it ruin your weekend. It's all going to be okay.

Send OLSAS and the school an email saying you intend to accept and explain the situation, they'll probably understand. And it should be open again tomorrow, the deadline is tomorrow meaning by the end of the day tomorrow. 

OLSAS is pretty forgiving. The first time I applied my payment didn't go through and I only realized it 2 weeks after the deadline, so nothing was submitted. I called OLSAS and they shoved everything through for me. They're nice people, it's just the site that is clunky as hell.

    • Please stay around and look at the other posts and threads here! There are many discussions that happen (politics, law school, lawyer life, business, etc) that could use other voices! Good luck in whatever you do 😄
    • If someone posts here, hey, is an A+ the highest grade at U of X, and I'm worried because if it's not the highest grade I'm not top of my class and am a failure given my expectations, they're being ridiculous both because the question they're asking is readily answered not on these forums but by asking their own school X or a Google search, and because their stated fear is ridiculous. Furthermore, if the person's fear was subjectively genuine - maybe they're suffering from imposter syndrome? - then isn't ridiculing their fears as baseless better than encouraging them to be afraid?
    • This is 100% true. I feel like I could preach a gospel about overcoming obstacles and it involves looking at where you are, deciding it’s unacceptable to you, looking at where you want to go, setting small incremental goals and working your ass off to meet them, trying over and over again when you fail. Coddling people does not help them at all. 
    • Damn this makes me worry. I have: CGPA: 3.91 L2: 3.90 155 Lackluster ECRS and LORS
    • You know, when the people who are in a bad place post here, they usually get some degree of compassion (often sandwiched around brutal, but useful, advice). But you're not asking for empathy or compassion, you're staying that people shouldn't go about their own business in a way that harms the self-esteem of others.  That's overreaching.
