Hi, 

I've seen a bunch of people mention their "OLSAS GPA" in these forums. Does OLSAS show you the GPA they calculated and sent off to schools, or did everyone just manually calculate it using the conversion chart on their website?

OLSAS will post your GPA eventually, once they process your transcripts. For now, you can calculate it yourself! 

Hey, seems like they processed my shit a while ago, do u know when I'll see the calculation/under which category I could find it? I assume "transcripts" but I see nothing, nor a category under which they could place it!

If I remember correctly, they post it for everyone in late November? I honestly don’t remember exactly when they post it.

Classic OLSAS leaving us in suspense until the week before acceptances go out

I get that you're all excited about applying but, seriously, you're going to drive yourselves a little crazy if you're worrying about things like this so early in the cycle. Keep in mind that the process goes on for the next nine months! Patience! You've submitted your apps, now try and relax. :)

@Megbean123   The vast majority of applicants will not be receiving acceptances in late November/early December.

Hi everyone, 

I was wondering if anyone has received their calculated GPA on OLSAS? Would you know when and under which section of the application do they usually post this info?

Thanks

If this helps:

The OLSAS GPA calculation appears under Supporting Documents --> Transcripts (exact wording might be a little off but it'll be shown on the transcripts part of your sent supporting documents section)

The OLSAS GPA calculation can be came out mid-afternoon on Dec 8th last year (yes, I was neurotic about checking OLSAS), which is after Osgoode and UofT sent their first acceptances, so it seems that the schools get the GPA calculation before it appears on your personal OLSAS profile.

But like @erinl2 said, don't get yourself too worried over these things! Make sure you're on top of the to-do's and it will all play out with or without the additional stress (even though I totally understand where you're coming from and did not practice what I preach). Good luck!

    • If that is your official OLSAS calculation and it’s so off, I’d be curious to know why as well. Generally speaking, my calculator has been reasonably accurate, so it may be worth looking into what they used to come up with those numbers. Assuming you included everything in my calculator, unless something is wrong with how I did things specific to your situation, they may have made a mistake. It’s rare but it happens. I’d confirm.  Let me know if it does turn out to be my app. 
    • https://www.osgoode.yorku.ca/programs/juris-doctor/jd-admissions/upper-year-exchange-applicants/transfer-letter-permission-applicants/ Decisions are generally made in accordance with the following priorities: Up to one-half of the available positions will be awarded to applicants on the basis of the strength of their law school academic records to date. It is therefore critical that we receive an indication of an applicant’s standing relative to the rest of his or her class. No fewer than one-half of the available spaces will be awarded to applicants who demonstrate compelling, compassionate circumstances that require them to transfer to Osgoode Hall Law School. Academic qualifications are not ignored in this subgroup but rather are used to aid in deciding between candidates who demonstrate comparable compassionate circumstances. Within this subgroup, priority will be given to: persons who must relocate to the Toronto area due to their own medical condition or that of an immediate family member; persons who would be separated from their dependents where separation to date has been extensive and commuting is not a viable option; and persons who demonstrate extreme financial hardship occasioned by study outside of the Toronto area. You sound a little insensitive to the fact that there are people attending law school with serious needs. My buddy transferred to Osgoode with a strong B+ average, but also had compassionate reasons in that he could hardly afford living expenses and had a wife and children to care for in Toronto.   
    • There likely isn't, I just find it odd that the change from the past cycle to this one is so different. Like I said in my original post, heed Ryn's advice and don't get your hopes up either way.
    • There has to be... most of the people that got in queue a few days ago received an acceptance
    • I didn't think there was any correlation between when you go into queue and when your are accepted.
