Waitlisted at ryerson for nursing

I applied for Ryersons nursing program this year and got waitlisted a few weeks ago. Is this pretty much the end of the road for me if i havent heard back by now? I have an offer at georgebrown which requires a deposit of $500 dollers due june 17 and i really dont know what to do as if i pay that $500 and later get called at Ryerson then i will lose $500. I was quite shocked to even get waitlisted as my top 6 average is pretty high at around 95-96. Has anyone on here been waitlisted at ryerson for nursing and received an acceptance still?

I don't know the specifics of Nursing at Ryerson but certainly people do cancel their spots over the summer, Your future is certainly worth wasting $500 so I don't know why you wouldn't lock down the George Brown offer unless you would turn that down if it ends up as your only offer. (If the George Brown offer is also nursing this seems crazy. If not could be worth waiting another year for nursing)

Doesn't Ryerson have a nursing collab with George Brown? What's stopping you from transferring to Ryerson after 1 year of GBC?

If anything, $500 is peanuts for something like this.

Did you get into Ryerson as you wished ?
