    Dealing with the stress?

    Just wanted to thank you guys again! I was able to convince my landlord to actually give me even more time than I’m legally entitled to to make a decision!!

    So a while back I called them to confirm that my to-do list saying initiated didn’t mean that they didn’t have my stuff. Anyways they basically told me that it just meant they didn’t get to it yet and that once they do they’ll be able to send it to ad comm

    Definitely. Based on my last phone call with them I’d assume it means they’ve gotten to our applications and they’ll be going to ad-comm soon!!!!

    I'm curious if there's anyone still sitting at "Referred for Review"? Also, I don't want to get anyone's hopes up, but it seems like it's possible that pending review is the step right before referred to ad-comm? So it would be "referred for review" -> "pending review" -> "referred to ad-comm"

    Dealing with the stress?

    Thanks! Yeah, but unfortunately as I've thought about it, I've realized I don't think I'm confident enough to stick around and wait for Dal to accept me. It's not that I think I have no shot, it's just that I'm not confident enough to sign my lease or potentially let other offers expire (if I received one that expired before I heard from Dal). With this in mind though, I will definitely be doing everything I can to receive an extension on deciding on our apartment. Though I doubt I'll hear from Dal by the end of February, but here's hoping. As for jobs, I think I've decided that I won't offer the information, but I won't lie either. If they flat out ask me if I have plans to return to school, I'll say I've applied but haven't heard back- but I won't offer it up myself. That's good advice- I think I'll just do my best not to worry and trust that things will work out! This is a stressful process but I'm not the first or last person to find myself in this position, and obviously, people get through this! Thank you for the advice!

    Thank you!! Yeah, my lease technically ends on May 31, but they want an answer by this Friday. Which seems stupid because every other place I’ve lived in has given me until the end of February to respond. I’m going to try and talk to them again- especially since they gave us the notice saying we had to decide at the end of January. It’s not fair to only give us a few weeks. That’s a good point- thanks- I will! I live in Nova Scotia but have only been here a few years and it’s different than Ontario so I definitely have to read up on it. Yeah I mean I’m definitely not applying for any contract jobs, but would still rather have them aware of the possibility.

    Dealing with the stress?

    Thanks for this! It definitely helps. Unfortunately my building is really high in demand and only offers yearly leases. I might just look at alternative buildings just to be safe. But this has been my favorite place so far, so I’m kind of annoyed about giving it up if I end up getting in in the city at a later date That makes sense! I actually haven’t been working the past 2 months but am ready to get another job- that’s why I’m looking now! I definitely don’t want to not work while I wait around for a response from schools. I just don’t like the stress of not having a plan!! No, my building only does yearly renewals! Believe me, I all but offered an arm to get an extension or a month-to-month.
  9. I completely understand that this is a marathon process that takes patience. In fact, not having an acceptance yet isn’t even what’s giving me the bulk of my stress. It’s everything that comes with it. For example, because of the date of my lease, I need to give them an answer this week on whether we’d like our apartment for another year. Obviously I cannot commit to that because I might not be living in the province come September, so we’ll be giving up the opportunity to keep our apartment. It’s the not knowing where I’ll be living that’s stressing me out. Same with work, I’m applying for jobs (not restaurant/retail- but more “substantial” jobs) and am stressing out about disclosing that I may be returning to school. For me, the bulk of my stress is coming from not knowing where I’ll be living in a few months. Or, potentially needing to find a place in a province I’ve never even been to on really short notice. How do people handle this when it comes to waiting on school acceptances?

    Mine changed also! Honestly, I’m just happy to see something change even if it doesn’t mean anything. I was starting to get really weirded out by it sitting exactly the same for like 2 months... haha

    Confirmation

    I have zero idea- but, based on what’s been going on with the single JD admissions, I’d say you might have a bit of wait in front of you. You could always give them a call and check that they have your application and the necessary documents. Good luck!

    Confirmation

    OP is likely referring to the dual program which has a later deadline.

    Confirmation email?

    Fair enough. The waiting game is rough

    Confirmation email?

    Hey!! It’s so stressful- I know! So I actually had a really easy time getting through to them (I called on multiple days at various times and only had 1 day where I had to call more than once). They did mention that it’s a very small office so they may just not have someone available on the phones some days. Id just keep trying, honestly. A good rule that I’ve found is always calling a few minutes after they open! Hope this helps
