Reference requirement! How many do I need?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! 

I am just about ready to subit my application but came across on OLSAS FAQ page something along the lines of "one of your three referees". The schools I am applying to only require two, so I have one academic and one non-academic. Do I need three? I do have another person I can ask if need be,  but I feel confident with the two that I have and would love to not stress about getting a third one on such short notice!

OLSAS allows a maximum of three references, but you are right in that most schools only require two. Don't worry about the third one and submit your application!

    • This is exactly my position. Got a comfortable government job, work from home and good salary. Decided this wasn’t going to fulfill me and I wanted to try for what I really wanted. I will be starting law school next year so I can’t say where it will take me yet but I’ve had a year to really contemplate this decision and I’m so happy I took the leap.
    • LOL, you didn’t frantically submit OLSAS applications on Oct. 31 and finish other apps throughout the week too, did you?? Nice to know someone else is in the same boat, fingers crossed we hear something soon! 
    • Here is a great link from LSAC where they compiled all the important info for each law school: https://www.lsac.org/choosing-law-school/find-law-school/canadian-law-schools For most of them they list things like the schools history, focus areas, and tuition! I agree the UOttawa website is a little odd to navigate, so I hope this helps:)
    • Jk the bursary email just came out. 
    • I applied for the bursary as an undergrad and still haven't received an award or rejection email. I received notice of a scholarship about a week ago so I think they're just super delayed with the award process right now.
