University Offers, Refusals and Second Chances
This time of year brings a lot of good news and some not so good news. If you have not received an offer from a university in your program of choice, do not despair. June 5th marks the day when OUAC opens again. You can apply to all universities that still have spaces available in your program area. There are always doors to open when others close. Speak to Danette to discover what options are out there for you!
