Step 2: I don't think there is a reference form outline...you have to go to your MyFile thing and say who will reference you (name, mailing address and email address).

They clearly said no friends, family or classmates...

I think it's okay but from what I've heard...it's better to use references related to your extracurriculars.

Deadline...depends on where you live...if you're from Ontario it's February 8th.

P.S. Do you know whether or not if, I have to send a hard-copy of my reference letters with my supplementary form, if my "referees" send it electronically or if they've already sent the hard-copy, do I have to send another copy with my supplementary form?
