Recommended Posts

Hey I would like to send my Fall 2020 grades to the Law Schools. Do I add a new transcript request for end of Fall Term then submit the application?

Any help is appreciated thank you

I think that’s right, or at least that was my plan haha. If someone can confirm? (I’m also an applicant this cycle haha)

Your applications should be already submitted since deadlines for most law schools have passed. Once your fall grades are released, you will be sending your updated transcript to all the law schools you've applied to, except for Ontario, you will just send one to OLSAS.

You do a transcript request through OLSAS when fall grades are final. Do not send one to OLSAS. Complete the request for transcript through OLSAS and they will request it from your school then forward it to others. 
 

Wait until your fall grades are official and final (I.e not just send to you by a professor). Once they are official complete the request.

how do I request transcripts through OLSAS?

Even when applying there was no transcripts request option in OLSAS - I had to request transcripts through my school and have it sent to OLSAS.

Unless you're not in Ontario. If you're outside of Ontario, you get your school to send one to OLSAS.

I contacted OLSAS about this yesterday. They said when it says received that means they have received the marks and the schools that you applied to will be receiving your marks within a few days of OLSAS receiving them. However, your cGPA and fall 2020 marks will not be visible until mid Feb on OLSAS.

Mine is the same. There's a delay from when your transcript is marked "received" to when they update your OLSAS cGPA (same as there was in the fall for initial transcripts).

From what I've seen on this forum, it can take up to a few weeks to update. :)

So my transcript has been received and my grades were updated 1-2 days ago on OLSAS. Can this mean that law schools have also received my updated cGPA? Or should I not get my hopes up lol

I am not 100% sure but I think you can assume that law schools have received your updated information.

Did anyone else see that for students outside of ONT, our transcripts including courses completed in Dec 2020 must be sent in to OLSAS by Feb.1??

Yes, that's correct. An updated transcript for those still in undergrad is due today.

    • Thank you for your response. Relocating out of GTA/Durham Region isn't possible for me so I will take that under advisement. I appreciate your honesty
    • It's a process to transfer jurisdictions after being called so I agree that you should at least figure out what province you want to live in, and that's where you probably should do articling. That said, I have plenty of friends who articled here in Ontario and left the province when they were done (to go back to their home province or whatever). So it's not a hard and fast rule. If you are truly torn (i.e., don't mind having to leave the province after you've articled), then take the job you think you'll like and is in an area of law that's connected with your interests. If you like criminal law, the good news is that it's federal so anywhere you go after you article will be able to make use of your experience. You may have to learn some local civ pro but that should not be difficult to figure out.
    • Thank you for your response, that's a great idea. I will check it out
    • est-ce que c'est mort pour BCF MTL??
    • Also go to Queens and I also had many profs who did not allow computers in class (I am likely in the same section as the individual above). However, now that we are online we can do what we would like. My advice, definitely do your reading notes on your computer. You'll waste too much time otherwise. For class notes, it depends on the professor. Certain professors lecture more than others and in those classes you will have difficulty writing out all your notes by hand. However, other classes are more discussion based and do not require a lot of note taking. However, as you said, trial and error is definitely required.
