Taking back a firm acceptance?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've received an offer from the University of Ottawa that expires on April 1. I haven't heard back from all the schools I applied to yet and I'm beginning to get worried that I won't have all my responses by that April 1 deadline. I planned on provisionally accepting my offer to Ottawa and keeping all my other applications open, but I just noticed on OLSAS it says: "if you provisionally accept an offer, you may not be able to change it to a firm acceptance if the expiry date has passed". So basically, my question is: is there any way to keep my applications to other Ontario law schools open if I provide a firm acceptance to the University of Ottawa? Once you do provide a firm acceptance, is there any way to change your mind, back out of it, and attend a different law school?

Thanks in advance.

If you firm accept, you are automatically removed from consideration from every other school in Ontario. It will not affect out of province schools.

Provisionally accept Ottawa and leave everywhere else open. If you don't get any other offers, you can then either change it yourself to a firm accept, or it will automatically become firm in early July.
