OUAC... grrr!!! Share your hate for our centralized university application center

A photo of Rourachnitchai Rourachnitchai
I have a major issue with OUAC.

Every time I go to check upon my application, I always forget to check the little box agreeing to their terms and conditions!

Then that stupid pop-up pops up.

RAGE!!!!!!

Share stories of hate and so forth.

I like OUAC. It makes things easy.

So you have to check the box, it's not a big deal.

Yeah I always do that too.
I just ignore the pop-up and try logging in again, I'm such a fail.

I've done that often too. What really gets me though is how frequently the website has been down recently.

Probably because a lot Ontario applicants are applying last minute, so the system is getting jammed with all the applications coming in at once!

Not much hate. What would the alternative be if there were no OuAC?

How do you guys say OUAC in real life?

Just OUAC...?
Or if you prefer the long way.. Ontario Universities Application Centre...
Lol..
Unless there's some special name you guys call it over there on the East coast.

I mean, do you actually say O-U-A-C or do you say it phonetically? I say it phonetically like "oo-ack"

I've said "OO-ACK" since the first time I saw it. I haven't had any issues with it though. I think BC needs a similar system because sending transcripts is a pain.

I just say O-U-A-C like the acronym. Anyways, I love how easy OUAC makes it to apply to universities, only a few clicks once you have the account set up. Hate how you have to send a transcript to each individual university. Should only be able to send one to OUAC and they upload it and forward it to the universities.

We actually do have something similar in BC.
It's called BC-pas? Or something like that, I totally forgot.
Through that, we can apply for all universities in BC..
but it's just that most universities still allow people to apply through their website so not many people have heard of it.

PASBC. But I wished it kept track of our transcripts and automatically sent them to the universities we applied to. Something a lot more comprehensive like OUAC...
