    It is saying "unsuccessful deferral" which is odd as I don't meet any of the issues. I contacted the registrar about this.

    Yeah, I got mine today too

    you have to submit a notice of assessment 3 days before you try to defer, there's more info about this in the package you'll get in the mail
    EDIT : Sorry, I just realized that you only need the notice of assessment if you're from a province other than Ontario.

    you have to register first and then email the registrar, again there's more info about this in the package you'll get in the mail

    What page is this information on? I must have missed the instructions on how to submit a notice of assessment as I was skimming through the package.

    Sorry, I just realized that you only need the notice of assessment if you're from a province other than Ontario. The info is under FEES PAYMENT INFORMATION part B. Deferring your fees (on the back of the third and front of the fourth sheet of paper).
    I'm not sure why it's not working, I'm also getting the same error message when I try, but I'm not too worried since we have until Aug 25th to either pay or defer the fee. Also, I think everyone is getting the same error message so I don't think there's anything wrong on our end.

    Thanks for clearing it up. I've emailed the registrar, so I'll see what they have to say and share that here when I get a response.

    Just got an email back from the registrar.

    Apparently if you did not know your UofT student number during the completion of your OSAP application, you will not be able to defer fees on ROSI/ACORN. They asked me to send a screenshot of OSAP website indicating that I am expected to receive funding this year. So if you are having issues too, this is likely why.

    So it's best best to email them directly about this.

    I was wondering, for those of us who applied for osap without entering our UofT student numbers, and selected the option that osap pays fees directly to the university, how will osap be able to pay without knowing our student numbers. Or for that matter, how will osap get a confirmation that we're even enrolled in the program?

    I'm pretty sure that although some schools have the option for OSAP paying the fees directly to the university, UofT doesn't do that - either OSAP or UofT mentioned it specifically, but I forget exactly where... Instead, OSAP will pay the money directly to your account (once you submit your direct deposit info). As for getting confirmation, I believe UofT will be sending docs to OSAP.

    does it matter which bank you go with as long as you have a decent interest rate? (hopefully prime)

    No it doesn't. I personally went with TD because I love my bank and don't see myself doing business with any other bank, so for convenience I just did TD.

    I don't think there are a lot of people on the wait list in this group. Last I counted there were only 4 people in the group on the wait list. I really hope we get in! Maybe it'll start moving faster at the beginning of august as I think that's the deadline for most medschools and other graduate programs. I really wish we knew our rank on the list!

    I'm starting to lose hope too and I think the best thing to do is start working on improving applications, also you can join the fb group they're letting everyone in

    They confirmed that my fees have been deferred because of the OSAP/student number issue but I asked that they tell me what the new due date is and they never told me. Does anyone know when our deferred fees are now due?

    The due date is in the package they mailed out, I don't remember what it was exactly but I think it was in late September.

    So do I have this correct --> If we decide to defer our fees, tuition for the fall term is due on September 30 and winter term is due on January 31?

    Who's going to Phrosh? I didn't go to Frosh for my undergrad, and I live quite far away. But maybe I should go to this one. (deadline in 1-2 days)

    Also, are any of you buying the textbooks?

    I think it's a good idea to go to phrosh! I met most of my really good friends during phrosh and most still sit in class with people they met in phrosh. It's one of the most memorable experiences in Pharmacy School so I definitely recommend it!

    As for textbooks, I prefer having the physical copy infront of me so I would recommend buying the books but it's up to you! :)

    Any news from the wait list? Question for upper year students/other people who might know the answer: Do people normally get off the wait list this late in the game?

    Hey guys, has anyone received information about scholarships in the mail yet? The decisions page on the applicant website said it would be mailed out in mid-August, just wondering if people have started receiving things already. Thanks!

    Not that I know of... Did you or do you know someone who got off? Also, according to past years' statistics is it even possible to get off the wait list this late?
