OMG: What the fuck, Waterloo? We're incoming frosh. Waterloo sent the res deposit confirmation to my friend's normal email, and then sent the "oops, your money bounced because credit card problems" message to her Waterloo email: the Waterloo email that they said they wouldn't be using until June 23rd("Beginning June 23rd, email from the University of Waterloo will be sent to your new Waterloo email address.").

So basically we don't know if she's going to be able to have a spot on res anymore. She's calling them tomorrow. Sigh.

  3. Get used to there shitty websites and IT. This might be a sign for your friend to reconsider the decision to come to Waterloo.

    1. Seconded. And before you think of visiting the registrar's office, be careful visiting Needles Hall. IT's not the only thing fucked up there.

  4. I wonder if she deferred her offer from the year before? i.e. she had an offer from a previous year to UW. I know that if that's the case, all UW systems are inputted with their UW email (even if they haven't attended school yet). Tell your friend to get used to using their UW email all the time. If I were incoming frosh, I would have been checking my UW email everyday just in case something important popped up there.

    1. I'm OP.
      Nope, we're in our last year of highschool so this is the first time we've applied.
      The thing is, they sent an email that specifically says they wouldn't send anything to our Waterloo emails until June 23rd. :/ I don't see how she could be faulted for that.

    2. ^Turn around, run away, and don't look back. Seriously. Administration at UW is the worst I have ever seen in a university. Look at other options before deciding. Good luck.

  5. tip for frosh: I recommend forwarding your UW email to a more regular email (or example, gmail) so that you won't miss emails. This can be done on the watiam administration page.
