  1. OLSAS will send it after you click send email so it is possible for your referees to receive the email prior to you completing the application. UoC does not send it until you submit you application.
  2. Out of your list, from the current cycle: UVic emails and phones UBC, Calgary, and Queen's email and update their respective portals. I think I remember UBC also calling but can't be 100% sure now. Alberta emails and snail mails (Osgoode isn't listed as I don't know about them).
  3. Accepted a few days ago. LSAT: 163 CGPA: 3.96 Will likely be declining for UoC or UBC.
  4. Email followed by the green circle changing to a check mark on student centre.
  5. Admitted today! CGPA: 3.96 LSAT: 163 ECs through work and volunteering UoC alumni Will likely be declining my other offers for Calgary. Look forward to meeting everyone!
  6. I would suggest browsing the historical first known offers threads to get a more comprehensive idea idea: http://lawstudents.ca/forums/topic/26978-first-known-offer-and-links-to-acceptedrejected-threads-2010-2016/ I did a quick browse and it shows that in 2016 cycle, someone was accepted on April 5, 2016 with a ~91.5/.6 index, and slightly lower indexes being accepted from late April onwards. (http://lawstudents.ca/forums/topic/43124-accepted-2016/page-5) Assuming equivalent competitiveness, you will likely be accepted later in the cycle with that index. UVic also uses an index which can be found here: http://lawstudents.ca/forums/topic/40348-index-for-automatic-admission/
  7. Would really appreciate if someone could do one for UBC.
  8. Just received the offer email! CGPA: 3.9/4.0 LSAT: 163 Non-Ontario resident
  9. Whoops must have gotten UBC and Ontario's system mixed then. 3.9/4.0
  10. It was at one point but now it doesn't seem to appear anymore which is why I am just drawing from memory at this point. No, I am not an ON resident. My university uses a different scale system.
  11. I also got an email to check the status in the portal (I am not currently a Western student) and my status was changed to offered acceptance. The portal has the digital versions of the acceptance letters. Stats: GPA: If I remember correctly OLSAS calculated it as 4.1 LSAT: 163 Good luck to everyone!
  12. Status changed to offer today! Self calculated (non-verified): GPA: 87.6 (after drops) LSAT: 163 Index: 92.4 Applied second week of Oct.
  13. Are we allowed to call about this? It says here (https://www.ouac.on.ca/faq/documents-in-support-at-the-ouac/) " Do not contact the OUAC to check whether unprocessed documents have been received" which made me think otherwise.
  14. I am also wondering this. I requested officials from my school the first week of Sept. and my OLSAS also says it hasn't been received yet. I have read somewhere on the forums that it may not change until your application is submitted. Can someone confirm if this is true?
  15. Unless I am misinterpreting this, according to https://www.ouac.on.ca/guide/olsas-referees/, the letters of references are submitted online now (see quote below). The only time it says to mail is if you have to download the form?
  16. I also have that problem. I was thinking maybe it doesn't update until you submit the application/pay the fees?
  17. The UoA's admission website says: "Two (2) official transcripts (must bear the seal and original signature of the issuing institution) of all post-secondary institutions (including undergraduate, graduate & exchange programs) are required", with the deadline being February 1. I wanted to clarify, do they want 1 during the fall when you submit your application and another by February to include fall grades or do they need 2 with your fall grades? As well, for OLSAS verifers, I had an executive position in a campus club and wanted to include that in my application but aren't sure who would be an appropriate verifier (would this be another executive or the campus clubs office?). As well, I received the Louise McKinney Post-Secondary Scholarship, however, this doesn't show on my transcript (at least not the unofficial one). As such, would I require a verifier for this? Curious if anyone has been in similar situations and can offer some advice. Small details but I don't want to mess them up! Thanks in advance.
  18. I have been conducting research for applications in the fall and was wondering if an irregular number of courses taken would be viewed negatively by admissions committees and should be explained in the personal statements. The usual degree route at my university is 5 courses a semester for 4 years. I was originally ahead of this usual schedule due to AP transfer credits but went into the co-op program and took a January co-op term. I could have finished in 4 years anyways (so finished at the same time as those who did not do co-op programs) if I had chosen to do 6 courses a semester for 2 of my semesters but instead I opted to take semesters with less than 5 courses and finish my degree at the same time as the other co-ops who were not originally ahead. I have always taken enough courses each semester to maintain a full time student status.
