  1. You should have atleast been emailed a purchase receipt from OUAC once you paid. Maybe log in and double check your email in your personal information tab.
  2. This is true for ON students. I spoke with an OLSAS representative a few weeks ago and she said since OLSAS requests ON university transcripts themselves (after you submit your application and pay a transcript request fee) applicants from ON only need to submit their application by the Nov. 1st deadline.
  3. You won't be rejected if you indicate a future LSAT date... assuming it's possible to obtain an LSAT score that could make you competitive, they will wait to see what you score.
  4. Will Queen's randomly choose only one to read? This is what their website says for general applicants: "Please provide one academic reference. No more than three letters of reference may be filed to support an application." I interpret this you may submit one, two, or three references... as long as at least one is an academic reference.
  5. I have my thesis research that I hope to eventually publish (fingers crossed!). I would like to include it in my sketch but because I have not submitted it for publication yet, I wouldn't consider it to be "forthcoming" by the Nov. 1st application deadline. Should I simply indicate that there's been no formal publication as of yet?
  6. WakeboardKing indicated that they receive 4.5 credits for a single semester course and that a full year course is worth 9 credits... the conversion is specific to each applicants transcript. Since 4.5 x 2 = 9, it makes sense that their full year 9 credit course would be given a weight of 2 while their single semester 4.5 credit course would be given a weight of 1. To be specific to your case, it sounds like a single semester course is worth 0.5 credits. So to me, it follows that your monster 2 credit course would be weighted x4. If you're concerned about it you could always try and contact OLSAS for a 100% correct response, rather than some anonymous fool calling themselves Honks202.
  7. If you only require two references, only use your strong two references. Western states this on their website's FAQ: Can I provide more than two reference letters?OLSAS permits this, but if more than two are submitted, our Admissions Committee will read only two of them, selected at random. So if you applied to Western and provided your third "OK reference letter", it could only, potentially, hurt your application.
  8. No they won't carry any extra weight. Different schools allocate credits differently and OLSAS accounts for this by having a single semester course/half course weighted x1 and a two semester course/full course weighted x2 in their GPA calculation. Sounds like you've got it pretty well figured out though!
  9. Check the application requirements for each school you intend on applying to. They will also specify whether they want academic, work experience, or both. For instance, each school I'm applying to only requires two references... one school even states that if three references are provided, two will be picked at random and that the third will not be read. So it makes sense (in my personal case) to only have two people that I think a) know me best, and b) will provide the best reference. Good luck!
  10. LSAC has a few tests available online for free that are identical to the digital LSAT. Check them out here: https://familiar.lsac.org Yes
  11. I'm not familiar with the 4.3 scale but since you're converting each individual grade and not your 4.01/4.3 GPA, I would think that you still use the institution scale chart to figure out the scale relevant to your undergraduate institution. Convert each individual grade to a OLSAS GPA value using the scale relevant to you, then average the values out. With UofT or Dal you are either using scale 3 or 7, depending on whether you were assigned percentage or alpha grades.
  12. Convert your percentage grades using the OLSAS GPA table: https://www.ouac.on.ca/guide/olsas-conversion-table/ A 79.3% average is likely much further below a 3.7 than you'd think.
  13. Thats what I did. I also drew a line to separate each paragraph's notes so that I could reference them easier when a question stem referred to a particular paragraph. Mind you, everyone I know (including myself) got absolutely destroyed by RC in July so it didn't really matter anyways!
  14. I found using the tablet very straight forward. The thing I didn't like was the glare on the screen from overhead lighting. That and proctors learning how to administer the test for the first time. But as long as you've reviewed the LSAC tutorial you will have no issues jumping right into the test. Some people I know didn't like it when the "five minutes remaining" box popped up and you had to physically close it to get back to the test. Good luck!
