I have asked more than 3 referees to write an assessment for me. If all of the referees send their assessments, which assessments will be used toward my application? Can I pick which references I want sent to the law schools?

ORPAS does not review prerequisites. You will need to contact the Rehabilitation Schools directly for more information.
I’ve entered some prerequisites but it still says “No” for submission entered. Why is it not changing to “Yes”?
The submission entered will only change to “Yes” once you’ve entered a prerequisite course for each prerequisite category.
If I am using my Advanced Placement (AP) classes as prerequisites for medical school, how do I send my AP transcript to OMSAS?
If your AP transcript contains grades for prerequisite courses, you will have to mail or fax your request to the AP College Board. The College Board will then mail your transcript to OMSAS. Note: OMSAS is unable to receive the electronic AP transcripts and does not have a 4-digit institution code.
If I submit on the deadline date and order a transcript from an Ontario institution online, will my transcript be considered on time?
Yes, receipt of an online transcript request (that forms part of the application) by the stated deadline satisfies the transcript deadline requirement.
You must provide a home address and a mailing address, even if these 2 addresses are the same. A mailing address is the address where you receive postal mail. It is not your email address.
