OLSAS Fall Grades Transcripts

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

 

I have already been accepted to all the laws schools I have applied to. I am in my last semester of my undergrad right now, do I still have to send my transcripts through OLSAS for my fall grades if I have already been accepted?

Yes, your fall grades were due on February 1. Additionally, your final semester grades are due by June 30. This is explained on OLSAS, and should have been explained in each acceptance letter/package that you received, too. 

For example, see here for U of T's instructions, reiterating the requirements for your submission of fall term grades to OLSAS. Additionally, you can view Osgoode's transcript submission requirements here. Or, you may want to consult the requirements outlined directly by OLSAS, which are located right here

I am not certain what, if any, impact there will be as a result of your failure to meet this requirement. But my best advice would be to submit your fall term grades ASAP, followed by your winter term grades by no later than the OLSAS specified deadline (i.e.: June 30). They are both required, irrespective of your offers of admission.

Thanks for sharing that. I had no clue. Wish they'd make this stuff more obvious.

Same, now I'm freaking out lol. I just requested my transcript through OLSAS, really hoping it's all good.

Reasonably speaking, I doubt it’d be a big deal if the info is a bit late. But obviously get it in ASAP and don’t risk it in the first place because it could be used against your application.

If I did not take any courses in Fall 2018, do I still need to request to send an updated version? I was on a co-op term.

I would say yes, because they don’t know that and it’s the only way they’d find out. That said, you can always call the schools to confirm.

I had to submit my grades late since my university takes +1.5 months to issue transcripts. OLSAS says that they'll forward through grades whenever they get them. The deadline issue isn't with them per se, but rather with the schools. I would email the Ontario schools and let them know your transcript might be coming in late! Also, if you're in grad studies and applied to Osgoode, they don't need grad transcripts / your application isn't affected by missing the Feb 1 deadline.

Update for anyone dealing with the same issue: I sent in my transcripts late, and emailed each school directly letting them know and it was all good!

    • First time posting after a lengthy "lurker" status. Has anyone seen their Jan LSAT score pop up in OLSAS yet? Mine hasn't. I'm guessing that's normal, as it has only been a few days since the scores were released, but wanted to compare notes.
    • Update: People have been accepted with worse stats than me at this point...
    • Has anyone out there gone to meet with Dean Holloway for anything? If so, what for? I've been summoned for a chat and I don't know what to expect. I'm sure it's nothing bad but the uncertainty is doing nothing good for my imagination. He seems like the kind of guy who genuinely likes chatting with students so maybe something along those lines? 
    • Depends a lot on where you want to study. I only know about Ontario so here’s info on that region: You would apply to all Ontario schools through OLSAS, a centralized application portal that gathers materials and sends them to the schools. Applications are normally due within the first days of November, the year before you apply. So, November 2019 if you want to start in 2020. Applications will open in late August each year, but you can search the net for last year’s info, which should be very accurate.  There used to be only 3 LSAT dates per year- June, September/October, and January. On your OLSAS application, you must indicate which tests you have already written, and which you intend to write. Many schools would accept any test date, but might put off evaluating your file if you intended to re-write. Some would not look at the January score. It is my understanding that there are many more test dates now. You’d have to check each schools website, but I’d say the general rule applies- for admittance during the 2019-2 cycle, you’d have to write the test before February 2020.
