Really? It took me 20 minutes to do all of mine. I am glad I do not have to do it for every school.

Has anyone else run out of room when putting in the course titles? Some of mine don't fit in the space that they give...

And does anyone know how to convert course units from Canadian schools (ie. 0.5 credits per course) into semester hours? Or do I even have to convert it for optomCAS?

Thanks!

I'm having trouble converting my numeric grades (0-100%) into letter grades, it seems rather subjective.. Can anybody help me please?

Your school should have a conversion chart, I had the same problem.

on optomcas you must list every single college class you have taken.. and sending them a transcript is to verify the person didn't lie about their grades.. if applicants didn't have to send their transcripts, it wouldn't give them a reason to not lie about their grades.. but the fact that they have to send their transcripts (whether optomcas even checks them or not) makes the person more inclined to tell the truth about their grades.
