Such as "offer" in:
我有了CUHK的入学许可 = I got an offer from CUHK.
还没有一个地方要我 = I still don't have any offers.
I think there is no such noun in Chinese. Is there?

It was foolish of you to accept his offer.
However, one did specifically relate to a job offer and used 工作錄取.
The job offer still stands.
Another one used 工作机会, but that seems closer to "job opportunity" than "job offer".
I received a good job offer.
I found 16 total sentences that used "offer" as a noun. They translated it using the following terms:
You can use 录取通知书, but it is pretty formal. Often it is used for an admission notice of a school, but it can also mean job offer. So you can use 工作录取通知书, but it is not that often used.
You can also use 工作邀请. An example: 他只得到了一份工作邀请 means "He has only had one job offer".
On Nciku I also found this example:
He sailed through five interviews and was offered a job after each interview.
As is the way of most languages, the meaning of a term often varies depending on the context. The word offer, when used as a verb, commonly means to provide(提供), furnish/offer(供奉), or propose(提议). However in the context of your example,
offer is being used as a noun, and its meaning is more akin to the notion of
act of expressing willingness(表示愿意). Specifically, CUHK, by extending you an offer(of admission), has agreed to your previous application of requesting to be a student there. Similarly, by not having any offers, not a single entity has agreed to whatever proposition you proposed. As for a concise Chinese translation, I can't think of one at the moment that accurately captures the meaning you are trying to convey. The closest one would probably be 提议, but it is not quite right.
