    Hello

    I received my acceptance to York today. I don't know if it's a conditional offer or not yet because I have only received an email from York and haven't received a package yet... If it's a conditional offer, does anyone know what the condition is? I am trying to finish the psych and philosophy requirement this semester and was wondering what the final avg has to be for those courses.

    Also, I have noticed that the York offer expires on March 20th... which is bad because I am still waiting on other universities offers If I accept the York's offer through OUAC, can I no longer be considered by the other universities?

    Any help or comments will be greatly appreciated!

    The condition will probably be that you finish your pre reqs and maintain a C+ overall and B in the last 10 credit. Also, I believe if you accept the offer you might be able to change it later but I;m not sure. If I were you I would call York and see or contact the OUAC people. Also, if you dont mind what are your two averages like ? Thanks and congrats !

    Hey nutmeg congrats. I got accepted too and it sucks that my offer expires on March 4th because I was waiting to hear from other universities when u accept the offer u wont be able to accept other offers on ouac.
    My offer of admission is conditional and they stressed it twice that I should get minimum B in psych (my only in progress pre-requisite) as well as all my other courses I am currently enrolled in.

    @hopefulN. Thank you I think I should really call OUAC and York on Monday about this. My cGPA is in the B+ range, so I was suprised to get the offer. I don't know what my GPA is for the last 10 credits actually but I think it was also in the B+ range.

    @nisreen. Hi Nisreen, Congrats! And thanks for your reply I'm hoping that the York's package comes next week so that I can learn more about this conditional offer. Btw if you don't mind me asking, which school do you go to? Are you a York student or from a different university? I'm trying to figure out if the offer expiration date and the condition varies based on where you are from. Also, I'm going to call OUAC and York about whether or not I can accept subsequent offers.

    The problem is that I don't know if I will be able to get a B in a psyc course that I'm taking right now. If I take up York's offer - resulting in me not being able to accept offers from other universities - and then my final grade for the psyc course is below B, I will not be able to attend York. This would also mean that I would have to wait another year to try for nursing. ... It really is a stressful situation at the moment

    Thanks nutmegcocoa4, you should definitely contact the York admissions and OUAC. It sounds very unfair to me that you are not able to accept other offers, because ultimately the decision should be yours about what institution you want to attend. Best of luck ! : )

    nutmegcocoa4, have you taken any additional courses through your undergrad? I would consider dropping the psych course if I were you, before your school's drop date. That way, you don't have to worry about doing well in the course anymore!

    And congrats on your offer by the way

    Hey,

    I am not a York student and I completely understand what you mean. It is very stressful in my case as well (psyc is really not my thing :/). Call York and ask them about your conditional offer. BTW a B is between 70-74 according to their grade scale.Also, you have up to august to show them prove of the completed pre-reqs. You can either work really hard to get the highest mark u can get, or drop the course if it is not too late and take it in the summer, or if u cant drop it and u end up doing poorly u can still upgrade and repeat the course in the summer. You have a lot of time left in that regard.

    as to the deadline for accepting the offer, there is really no way out because I asked York and they said there is no extension.

    keep us updated and good luck!!

    I don't think Western starts their process until April? I mean the deadline was just 4 days ago but I could be wrong.

    From the OUAC Website:
    Common Questions


    When I accept an offer of admission, does it mean that I will not be considered for any other offers?

    Accepting an offer of admission from one university will not cancel your application to other universities and/or programs. However, you may have only one acceptance of an offer on file at a time. Before you can accept a subsequent offer online, you must first cancel the previously accepted offer currently on file. Note: If you submit a subsequent paper acceptance, the OUAC will automatically cancel your previously accepted offer.

    I hope it's not too late!!
