U of T Law's admissions website: "the admission GPA is calculated on undergraduate courses only, using the best three academic years (traditionally using both the fall and winter sessions per year) of full-time study from all years of undergraduate study. For the definition of full-time study please refer to the OLSAS Data Legend."

OLSAS Data Legend: "Duration F – You have the equivalent of a minimum of 3 full-time courses or 6 half courses. Two consecutive semesters are grouped together as full time."

I'm lost. Could someone clarify what U of T Law means by "full-time" study? TYIA

The OLSAS thing you quoted is the definition of full-year vs half-year courses, and their weighting in GPA calculation. Has nothing to do with "full-time" vs "part time" study.

I believe that UofT is referring to your course load. For example, if the regular course load in undergrad is 5 courses per semester, then you may be considered full time if you take at least 3 courses in a semester (this is just an example, idk what OLSAS considers "full time" but it is probably either 3 per semester or 7 per 2 semesters). If you took 1-2 courses in a semester that would be part-time study. That is what they are referring to.
