Intro courses

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I'm in my fourth year of undergrad, and I know UofT considers 100 & 200 level courses in 3rd/4th years "anomalies". My problem is that I wasn't really seriously considering law school until this year, and I've taken my courses out of order. I have 300 level courses in 2nd year, and 200 level courses in 3rd year. But I have taken more 300-level courses than what's required for my degree. I've done well in my upper year level courses, my grades have been consistently good. How much do you think this will hurt my chances?

I don't think that it is that much of a problem provided you are only taking a few of 1st/2nd year courses in your 3rd or 4th year. 

 

If your entire 3rd is 1000 level courses then you might have a problem. From my experience, there are only so many 3rd and 4th year courses you can take that you have the prerequisites for, especially if you are doing a really specific degree.

 

You are really over thinking it.

Yeah? I had a feeling I was overthinking it, but it was really making my brain itch. Thanks a lot! xx

Lol this doesn't matter at all. The real worry starts in law school. Enjoy life while you can. If you worry about such small things now, you're going to become a pressure cooker in law school.

I had first and second year courses in my third and fourth years and I didn't have any issues with it. Maybe if you took ten first year courses in your final year it might raise an eyebrow but it sounds like you're like I was and just taking one or two, I wouldn't sweat it.

    • sorry and i realized one more thing- a lot of my courses (fairly content heavy) dont show up on the alberta transfer credit search tool, has that happened to anyone and their course still got transferred? thanks
    • Yup, those Harbourview Condominiums, they seem nice in pics I'm hoping they are in person too lol. Thank you so much for the quick reply and advice, it's very helpful!
    • Hey, are you talking about that complex (might be a duplex not sure) that's right past the bridge? People over-exaggerate the un-safe environment of that side of the bridge. When people say they it's sketchy, they're always referring to like Indian road and Detroit street, which are only 'sketchy' because some houses are boarded up. The complex you're looking at is like a 10 minute walk from that area, and even that area isn't honestly that bad. My opinion is totally objective btw, I've been in Windsor for 22 years and I live in more of a 'suburb' on the opposite side of the city. My advice is that when you go, if you feel like what you see at first sight is safe, then you'll be fine. What you see is exactly what you get, and it is the better part of that neighbourhood. 
    • @madmax7 Hey, do you have any insight on 3000 Sandwich St?? Looking into living there for next year but have read mixed things on here about that area. Going to be heading down in a week or 2 to see firsthand but just wanted some insight from someone who knows the city... online the units seem pretty okay but don't want to live in a sketchy area lol 
    • Yeah, thanks for your reply!  I guess what I’m asking is like: my school has an intro to immunology class (300 level) and I couldn’t find an equivalent U of A class and since I got an A in it, I would want that included. I’m worried that they wouldn’t include it because there isn’t an equivalent one. I’m not really familiar with how they go about calculating GPA and stuff.    Thanksr for your time
