Accepting another offer - Laurier

A photo of IanSharer IanSharer
My friend wanted me to post this as she's too lazy to make an account. She had received an offer from Schulich and accepted it, but was waiting for an offer from Laurier. However, when she checked her LORIS account, it shows "Applicant Confirmed Elsewhere" under the decision column. Does this mean she's out of luck?

This came as a shock to me as well since I've read that accepting an offer should have no effect on getting offers from other Universities. In fact, I remember it being on OUAC (if I remember correctly) and a Waterloo representative mentioned the same thing.

I've confirmed at another university, will I still be assessed?
Yes, Laurier will still consider your application regardless of earlier decisions on your part. Should you receive an offer from Laurier, you can still accept Laurier's offer and this will void your previous acceptance elsewhere.

Thanks for the link! I've read that multiple times but when I logged onto her LORIS account myself to check, I was in disbelief. Still seems odd that the "Decision" column replaced "Decision Pending" with "Applicant Confirmed Elsewhere". I guess it's best she contact WLU admissions.
