  1. Does anyone who has experience with Osgoode admissions (upper years, people from admissions committee) know how much movement there is on the waitlist until OLSAS acceptances become firm in July? is it likely to get accepted off the waitlist at all in these two months? thanks

    We have a user here who is a professor. They mentioned that they have heard many universities are leaning towards online classes. 

    @jatthopefullawyer Im going to Western and I'm not looking for anything at this point either. Even if classes do continue on campus, I'm sure we will find something. 

    its nice to hear someone thinking the same way! if we do need housing in September, I think we will be okay. upper years have said that you can even wait 2 weeks before classes and find something. it will only be a problem if you are looking for a particular building like Luxe (which I think fills up really early)

  3. Why are people still looking for housing? I saw that in the Western facebook group that people are looking for roommates to lease starting in September, however based on this forum, classes are most likely going to be online. Am I missing something or should I also be looking for housing? thanks

  4. Is it normal for it to still say offer expires (May 1 for me) on OLSAS even though I have provisionally accepted my offer? I just wanted to make sure I was not missing anything and did not have to do anything else to secure my acceptance (other than the deposit). it also shows the green light on western's student website showing that I accepted

    It's a gamble. See: Ice Towers in Toronto, where the apartments turned out smaller than planned, had a design change with poor construction quality, and is now 80% AirBNBs.

    yeah I agree if you are smart and do your homework, you should end up making some money. the key is choosing builders with a history of delivering and location (the closer to the core is better). also near the subway or PATH system

    Even before COVID and the p/f system I've never heard of someone getting their offer revoked because of their last term of school. It might have happened but it seems to me like you'd really have to do horribly.

    does a withdrawal in one course look bad? I took 6 courses this semester to raise my GPA, but ended up withdrawing from one since I was getting a B in it. I have a WD on my transcript this semester. I got my grades back for my other 5 courses and have a 4.0 this semester. do you think they will care about the wd? I am still going to graduate this semester

    I have an old Benq monitor that works just fine with my mac.

    I have a Samsung monitor 24 inch that is 1080 too like your benq monitor. I do not like the display, the quality is bad. word docs and web browsing is way more blurry compared to my MacBook screen. personally I would get 1440 or 4k and spend some more money the next time I buy, others should consider this.
