OLSAS GPA Calculated and Posted on OUAC

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, the OLSAS calculated GPA has been posted on OUAC, today. Best wishes with this application session. It is available under the track documents section. It does not show best three or last two calculations, only the cGPA calculation per OLSAS' calculator. 

Best wishes for the application cycle.

Cheers! I assume they'll update it when Fall marks come in? Should bump me up 0.05!

You must submit your fall transcripts when all your fall semester's grades are in. The GPA will update shortly after OLSAS receives the transcript.

Is this done by simply requesting your transcript again?

Yes. Request to submit your fall transcript the same way you requested to have your transcript submitted when you initially applied.

And lemme guess, another $12 to the school?

Haha - that I cannot comment on. My undergrad was one of the few for which OLSAS did not make us pay to have our transcripts submitted. But for the other schools, I would imagine you have to pay again, yes.

Awesome. Thanks. I already did the transcript requests for current grades,  "after fall" and "after winter" so I don't have to worry about ordering them again

Yes. I did all 3 transcript requests at once (see my post above) and it charged me $12 per.

If I were to (hypothetically) firm accept an offer right now, would I still need to send in transcripts?

Check with the school. Years ago, when I accepted U of T early in the cycle, I still had to send a fall transcript, then, of course, a final one at the end of the year.

Y'know, because your schools aren't done taking that ~30K from you to begin with, they're gonna continue charging you for the privilege of telling others about it...

Has anyone ever had OLSAS miscalculate their cGPA for a certain year? I ran the conversion with the OLSAS chart and calculation multiple times and it seems pretty off - just for the one year though (everything else is exact). I've already emailed them, but I'm wondering if this is an automated process (less likelihood for errors) or if there is some poor soul that has to review them that may have just missed a few grades?

Yep! :)

As others have noted, once they receive your updated transcript, they will.

Did OLSAS calculate a GPA for each year for you? I only show an “Overall GPA”.

Only overall for me as well.

Yes! Under Academic Background -> View and then at the bottom there's a table of "GPA Summary" that includes a line entry for each year of school.With various Duration F/S (maybe full/summer) and scale (3/7 - possibly OLSAS conversion scale) codes. Then it shows the overall GPA calculation.

    • I'd like to offer a different perspective on why you should go to Queen's, in addition to everything stated above. I have found that lawyers coming from Ontario schools have a surprisingly easier time finding jobs in Western Canada (sometimes, even easier than some graduates of Western Canadian schools). This appears to mirror a general trend in Canada where it's easier to move East to West, and much harder to move West to East. In my cohort, a handful of students secured jobs at big firms in Western provinces without having necessarily the most competitive grades. I do note, however, that many of these people were originally from out West (i.e., they were able to establish a connection). Even so, I also notice many Western firms respect Bay Street experience - that is, if you want to move out there one day in the future after working for some years here. Just a thought. Also, I'd like to qualify the above observation by noting these are just some observations I've noted over the years, and it may not hold necessarily  true in all cases.

    • Yeah I’ve heard 1L has a tendency to do that lol 
    • There is literally no point* in living in Vancouver unless you're going to stick around for the summers, so I would take that into consideration.            * - I guess you could get up to the city mountains a couple times as a law student with the odd trip to a bigger hill. In that case, there may be one point.
