Fingers crossed: 3,300 Round Two CAO offers out today

For 761 students, it’s good news.

THE CENTRAL APPLICATIONS Office (CAO) will today issue 3,320 offers to applicants in Round Two of the CAO offers process.

The offers will go to students who have not been offered their top choices in college yet.

A total of 1,494 Level 8 degree offers, and 1,826 Level 7/6 offers, were made to 3,125 CAO Applicants in this round.

Of the recipients of Level 8 offers, 761 will receive an offer of their first preference course; for Level 7/6 offer recipients a total of 1,256 applicants’ first preference offers were received.

Applicants receiving an offer in this round will have until Wednesday 3 September at 5:15pm to accept their offer.

General Manager of CAO, Joe O’Grady, advised applicants to carefully consider their options.

“Many of the applicants receiving a second round offer today may have already accepted an offer in round one, and it is important that they take the time to decide between these courses and inform CAO before the reply date if they wish to accept the new offer.

“We congratulate all of the applicants who are receiving a CAO offer for the first time today and also those who have received a higher preference course in this round” he added.

Applicants can check if they have received a Round Two offer by logging in to their CAO account using the ‘My Application’ facility – applicants will also receive an offer notification by e-mail and SMS text.

Paper offer notices should be with successful applicants by this Friday.

If you do not wish to accept the new offer you can simply do nothing and your previous acceptance will still stand.
