That's why they ROFRed you, to push you into buying direct.

So find a similar contract and pay a little bit more.

I know how you feel, but don't give up yet! We were ROFR'd twice before they let our third attempt go through (last week).

I am so sad for you! (And scared for me!)

We are on day 29 of the wait...OKW $55 p/p Aug use year.

Now I'm worried.

This is an add-on for us. Was it an add-on for you, or new?

I'm so sorry to hear your news...best of luck finding a wonderful contract next time and having it pass easily!!

Agreed. There's still a big difference between paying a bit more than $53 to direct prices.

That's about 4 OKW contracts I've seen in the last month get ROFR'd (one was fine). Makes me worried about the other 2 i have passing ROFR.

I'm wondering if price is really the determining factor for ROFR because if you check the ROFR threads there are some contracts that passed for much less. I've also heard about others passing for less that aren't listed on that board. I still think there's something about the process that we are missing.

OP, I'm curious what the UY was and how many banked points there were, as well as the details about who pays closing and 2012 maintenance fees (if you don't mind sharing). Oh, and also I'm sorry to hear that you got RORFd.

Doug, we talked about this. Don't worry about it...just assume that they won't pass. Then when they do you will be pleasantly surprised.
