What questions are asked on the OLSAS referee form?

Recommended Posts

That old thread is inaccurate.  I'm looking at the 2017 OLSAS form right now--it was sent to me by OLSAS this week as I am writing a previous undergrad student a letter.  

There are several questions for which you have to answer excellent, good, average, poor.  These questions are about writing skills, work ethic, oral communication, maturity, integrity, critical thinking, etc.  It also asks how long and in what capacity you have known the applicant.  It then asks for an overall recommendation (highest recommendation, favourable recommendation, etc.).  Finally, it allows you to upload a letter.

Is there a N/A or don't know option for the ranking questions? Or can referees skip questions?

    • Oui c'est bizarre, je ne vois pas de fil sur des offres d'admission pour UQAM 2020 alors peut-être ils sont très en retard par rapport Sherbrooke à cause du co-vid. En tout cas, félicitations sur ton offre d'admission à Sherbrooke! 
    • PSA: please don't be this frugal (unless you need to be to survive).
    • I believe it was a 3.8, but I decided to cancel my offer to Windsor for Osgoode
    • I actually applied for deferral to the class of 2023 as well. They had told me that one student was approved, I am assuming you, and there were a few others that had inquired. I have already submitted my request but I was just wondering roughly the reasoning for your deferral and what you had to provide. I am basing my request on a mental health and financial basis. 
    • I had my heart set on Ottawa then got into Queens and Osgoode. Never heard back from Ottawa even though that was the only school I was told I would get into lol. Just be patient you'll get in eventually. Looking back on that application cycle though...it feels like a huge blur.
