Responding to offer of admission

Recommended Posts

I would clarify with Chantal. Last year the only option was to send your admission response via special delivery mail but given the covid-19 pandemic they seem to also be accepting it through email.

Also regarding our transcripts, one part of the email says to send it over to University of Ottawa but then it says to send it to OMSAS. Anyone know anything about what the correct information is?

Can you please let me know as well. I'm a bit confused with all that.

I was going to do both?

If anyone gets a response, could you please post? I did not hear back. I am just going to email and courier those 3 documents. Still enough time for transcripts to be figured out!

So... what's the process for accepting offer for Ottawa?

Do we just firm accept, submit, wait for the process to finish, and then submit transcript request?

I accepted on OMSAS, then emailed the letter offer form to admissions and they sent over a link to join the Facebook group.

Yep. It takes about a day or two for your omsas application to be processed after firm accept. Someone else summarized the things we have to do in the facebook group before may 26: accept OMSAS offer, courier original signed offer/copy of citizenship/white coat order form and email as well (if we have to do both?), and put in the $1000 deposit.

I emailed them and they replied saying they will not accept the documents (letter, white coat order, citizenship) by mail because campus is closed. You have to email everything. 
And you have to send the transcript to OMSAS.

Thanks guys! I am having trouble with the whole transcript thing though.. I am in 4th year UG and apparently the graduation date is officially in June... Which option did you guys click in OMSAS? 

I think you may need to click after degree conferred, as this info should be visible on the transcript. Double check with OMSAS live chat.

Hey guys! 

Just to confirm ... If I graduated in 2019 I don't need to send the final transcript, since I applied with my final transcript?

Did you attend a post secondary institution in 2019-2020? If not, you don’t need to send anything in, but if you did you should send it in

So if Diploma is conferred in 2 weeks from now you reckon to wait until then to submit your transcript?

I think you can send it in now, all your grades should’ve been recorded already

Does anybody have the definitive answer to whether the "average" we need to maintain for admission refers to this year's average alone, or a new WGPA calculated taking into account this year's grades? 

For context, I have a 3.857 in this year (on 70% course load), which I think is ok for IP Anglophone cutoff... It won't hurt either way. But would still appreciate the reassurance lol. 

Thanks so much guyzzz

I'm currently in a summer course, and my transcript probably won't have that grade by June 30... not sure what to do. Still waiting on admissions office to respond btw

Same here, could you please update us if they do?

On OMSAS, does your screen just show "firmly accepted" with offer expires tmrw, and that's about it? Just wanted to check if I have everything in order for tmrw. I received confirmation from Diane about receipt of my signed letter/proof of citizenship/white coat order form, and sent in my deposit. I know some people have received confirmation of their deposit going through but I didn't and as long as it shows on my bank statement, I think I'm good.
