The waiting game: university admissions FAQs

Posted by Rebecca Smith on December 14, 2016 at 2:30 PM

Applying to university is scary stuff, especially when you have a seemingly endless list of questions! Not to worry, here are answers to some of the questions we hear most!

When will I find out if I’m accepted?

The answer to this really depends on which program you’re applying to. You may wait a bit longer to hear about a particularly competitive program simply because the review process takes longer. However, your admissions offer could be coming any day now.

If you are among those who have already received your offer of admission, congratulations! We hope you will join the UOIT community. For those of you who are still anxiously awaiting an offer, hang tight. Decisions will continue being mailed out over the course of the next few months.

Last-minute tips before applying to university

Posted by Sarah Worthington on December 10, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Recruitment season has come to an end for the fall season; what a ride it has been. I would hope that all of you have learned a lot from me through visits to your school, fairs, and/or this blog in itself. Surprisingly, the main thing I have taken from this experience is the amount I have learned from all of you high school students. I certainly felt like I was aging myself at the beginning of this journey, putting myself in the shoes of an eleventh or twelfth grader. The truth is I forgot how overwhelming this whole experience of picking a university can be. As the recruitment season neared its end I began to see a bit more panic and urgency in some of you high school students getting ready to submit your applications. I thought I would end on a high note with some tips that I think will help you all and help ease the nerves as you begin a wonderful new journey -- trust me, I know from experience!
