Am I admitted??

Recommended Posts

Hey so my uWindsor says Status: Admitted... and besides it it says to view admission letter, but I can't click it.  And nothing shows up on Olsas and I didn't get an email. Should I wait for one of these before it's confirmed? Is it a glitch or something?

I wasn't able to open my admission letter at first either, but it turned out that Chrome was just blocking the popup - check your browser settings. Also, OLSAS took about 2 weeks to update for me so I would definitely check other places first.

Thanks! I'll definitely try that! Lol I need to make sure it's actually final and not a glitch or something

You're probably admitted. Give it time to process and then check again on Monday!

So update...I called the school and turns out my status is supposed to say Referred to Committee rather than Admitted. lol way to crash my hopes, Windsor

That’s actually unfair. Maybe if you left it there the entire summer and say “hey I never got my acceptance letter”

I just checked again and NOW it says referred - admissions committee. So I guess I can't do that anymore lol. But there's still a link that says "view decision letter" and then when I click it, it says "letters are generated 24 hours after admission. Please check tomorrow." Windsor is killing me here

That is ridiculous and every applicant's nightmare. I hope it works out for you soon.

    • Hey,  I'm moving from BC. I found a place through Kijiji. I had just been scanning the ads regularly. I was going to rent an extra month in July just to secure a place but ended up finding one that started mid August. So my suggestion is keep an eye out there. Also avoid Marda. They were awful and rude when I spoke with them.  As for course enrollment I believe we dont have to first year. I'm under the impression we get registered by the school. I could be wrong but when I was reading the handbook for the MSW/JD program that's what I got from it. I know you can check your uwinsite and at the top where it says applicant click it should drop down and there should be a student option if your account is activated. Mine is not yet. Not sure if others are.  We will also be receiving a welcome package in the beginning of August through mail with more info I believe. 
    • Just to dispel this myth, it isn't really true. Certain fields of law and practices, absolutely. But you can definitely work in Montreal being an Anglo with limited French.
    • Depends on the prof and time of year. Some profs are more helpful than others and some times of year they are busier than others. Some of them don't set rigid office hours but are easily available by appointment. During midterms/exams, office hours will invariably be busier than usual, but still easy to get in to. I find that the best way to have a productive conversation during office hours is to ensure I have compiled clear, narrow questions. It facilitates much more directed conversations and professors tend to be happier to help students who appear to be making efforts to learn rather than simply coming to them asking to be taught the entire course material. For example, I would not go to office hours simply asking for them to explain a topic. I would read about the topic, develop questions I had about it and go to them for clarification/discussion on specific issues I had.
    • I'm in the same boat as you with no hire-back from a public sector organization that would have hired me back if it had the budget (and due to recent budget cuts, it does not). I've applied to about 15 organizations for any positions asking between 0-2 to years of experience since mid April, with the most being at the beginning of May. I've heard back from four so far for interviews. The average response time has been about 1 month from the public sector, and about 2-weeks from the private sector.  I'm in the same situation as you, in that my area of law is niche administrative (municipal and planning) and so I have only been applying to public sector organizations and boutiques in that area.  I've actually had the most success applying outside of Ontario in Alberta. Have you considered relocation? I think it might be the most realistic option given the change of government in Ontario, although, its a financial hit. Good luck!
