LSAC and Canadian law schools

Postby JGK » Wed Aug 17, 2011 12:41 pm

Hi, I've been looking at applications to Canadian law schools and noticed the deadline dates on LSAC are different from the dates given by the schools on their websites. I was wondering if anybody could give me some advice on this issue.

When applying to schools, do you apply to each individual school, or can you do it through LSAC? I thought I could send my transcripts, letters of recommendation, etc. to LSAC and fill out the applications there... but I'm a little confused now. Do I need to go to each individual school and complete their online/paper application and send in transcripts etc. to each school separately?

I'll also be applying to US law schools, and would the process be any different? the same?

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

A lot of U.S. law school websites have application links that go directly to LSAC's page. You would log in, complete the application, and LSAC will send your selected LOR's and transcripts in a standardized report. I'm not sure how the Canadian process works...I'm assuming its the same if its through LSAC.

For Canadian law schools in Ontario you have to apply through OLSAS. You have to send all your documents to OLSAS and they will send them to individual law schools in Ontario. For other law schools in Canada, I am guessing you have to apply individually. LSAC only sends LSAT scores to Candian law schools.
