On the OLSAS application for the sketch section it says:

 

"Provide biographical information about yourself and outline your activities since high school (maximum 32 entries). This information is organized into 7 different categories. Your entries will be sorted chronologically within each category."

 

When they say "since high school", that means all my activities since grade 9 of high school right (i.e since starting high school)? Not since graduating from high school? Im 99% sure it means since grade 9, just wanted to confirm.

 

Thanks

No. Since finishing high school. Law schools don't care what you did in high school.

If there is any internship experience this section is where it's meant to be mentioned right? I presume activities are not just clubs and volunteer work.

I'll answer myself. The sketch could include:

  • Full-time Employment
  • Part-time Employment
  • Volunteer Activities
  • Extracurricular Activities
  • Academic Honours and Achievements
  • Research/Publications
  • Other
