Updated OLSAS GPA

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

OLSAS says that my transcript has been received from the fall 2020 semester, however these grades don't seem to be included in my overall OSLSAS GPA calculation. Will this be updated in the next little while? Or will OLSAS not include the grades in the calculation until the entire academic year is over? Thanks!

Hey!

I sent my grades in about a week ago & OLSAS has now updated them and added them to my overall GPA calculation! I assume that would be the same with everyone else's including yours! Probably just need to wait a few days?

Oh I'm so glad someone made this thread, it has been over a week for me and I was getting really nervous! I assumed it'll take a while but I'm glad to hear it's not because I messed something up :)

Does anyone know approximately how long it took for the transcript to be received once it was requested? I am still waiting on a grade and the Prof told me that it should be up by next week. As the transcript has to be received by Feb 1st, I don't know if I should just submit it now or wait until the grade is up, risking the Feb 1st deadline. Thanks in advance

I sent my transcript from a non-Ontario school and it took around a week to be received, uploaded, and updated on OLSAS. But, I think it's best to get into contact with OLSAS and let them know about your circumstance. They've definitely dealt with this exact situation thousands of times and are very aware of what the best next steps are. Better to contact them now than to risk your transcript arriving after Feb 1st with no explanation!

As long as OLSAS receives the transcript by February 1st, it is irrelevant when it is processed as they will record the time/date upon receipt of it. Hope that helps!

Hey thanks for the reply, I will definitely contact OLSAS tomorrow and probably have a better idea on what I should do.

When you say receive do you mean receiving the transcript request? Assuming you meant transcript request, I thought that as well but my understanding of the UofT Tumblr is that the actual transcript (and not just the request) needs to be received by February 1st. ("It is to be RECEIVED at OLSAS by Feb 1st, 2021. Time your submission arrangements accordingly. Do not submit to the law school, submit to OLSAS only.")

I can't comment on transcript requests as I attend university outside of Ontario so my transcript was mailed in. However, OLSAS stated that as long as the physical mail was received by Feb. 1st, it would not matter when it was processed as they timestamp them. I'm sure it works the same for you, but it just depends how long it takes for the transcript to be received from the request. If your prof has the grade up by Monday, I'm sure OLSAS would receive the transcript by the Friday, but who knows.

My transcript was received by OLSAS today. Can anyone provide some insights on how long it took OLSAS to update their GPA once the transcript was received? Thank you!

I'd say a week and a half at the most, and that's if they're really slow. Now that the rush of updated transcripts from most people getting their winter grades is over, I think yours might be quicker. However, some schools have let profs take an extra month to submit grades because of COVID-19 so there may still be waves of transcripts rolling in. I doubt it would be that many, though.

Is anybody still waiting for OLSAS to update their grades? My transcript has been received for a week now and I still have no updated grades.

It took about a week and a half to 2 weeks for mine to finally update!

    • On this site I regularly see people with LSAT scores 20-30 points lower than mine making ridiculous assertions about the amount of work that is supposedly required to get a top score. By contrast my personal experience was that the prep required to get a 99th percentile LSAT score consisted of learning basic logic game diagramming and writing a handful of practice tests. I see people with scores in the 150s knowing all the names of the different types of logical reasoning questions and discussing the logic behind them in terms I never learned and don't understand. All I know is if you put the test in front of me I intuitively understand what almost all of the answers are, but I couldn't do a good job of articulating why--the answers simply seem self-evident and to be taken for granted. Just chiming in because your statement squares with my experience (although I didn't reach 177). But by and large people with mediocre scores invariably claim that the LSAT is all about effort and just don't want to believe that innate aptitude has anything to do with it, because they tend to view it as an attack on their intelligence in general. (Just so I don't seem like a totally arrogant douche, everyone: for what it's worth I've put in serious effort trying to learn instruments and second languages and my innate aptitude in both of those areas is abysmal--I found such endeavors nearly impossible. Also the innate LSAT aptitude did not translate into innate law school aptitude, and I certainly would have preferred the latter. But yeah, the fact that I suck at other things but can effortlessly get an LSAT score in the 170s just emphasizes how much of it is innate. And the degree to which there are different kinds of intelligences that people have varying aptitudes for. The LSAT is irrelevant to me now in practical terms but I do find the subject interesting from a psychological perspective.)
    • Play nice. I'm all for disagreeing with someone, but if we can't be civil and start name calling, it's not possible to have real discussion.
    • The vast majority of people that score 170+ and post here put in a fraction of the effort the people grinding through the 150s and low 160s do. And I’m sure a ton of those grinders put in as much effort as is humanly possible into studying without having an innate grasp of the LSAT. But the people scoring 177-180 for example? Probably putting in some of the least effort into studying.
    • This is what I'm talking about, no one is actually making an argument, it's name calling and non sequiturs 
    • I've taken 14 sociology courses, 12 at u of t and 2 at ryerson. I dropped out a while back and decided to go back to school because I was tired of working construction so I went to ryerson to finish my degree.
