Question Regarding cGPA calculation

Recommended Posts

I will be applying this fall 2016 and am going into my fourth year. In year 1 and 2 I took a full course load (5 credits), no summer school. In Year 3 I took a full course load again (10 courses), but only have grades for 3.5 credits (7/10 courses). I credited three courses (had a slightly rough year).

 

My question is: How negatively will the fact that I only have 3.5 credits of grades (grades for 7/10 courses) in my third year be looked upon by the admission council (Very negatively/only slightly negatively/they won't really care)? Additional info: I study life sciences at UofT. Thanks

I'm not on the adcomm so I can't make any guarantees but I can tell you that I had a lot of strange things on my transcript (lots of summer courses, transfer credits, etc) and one F and got accepted pretty quickly. I think if overall your transcript is strong and those three courses are the only thing you're worried about you shouldn't lose too much sleep over it.
