Question on cGPA b3 and co-op

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! I just had a quick question with how my GPA would be calculated if I applied to U of T law. So right now I am studying at UBC and I got credits from studying the IB in high school so I planned to graduate in 3 years. The thing is, I decided to do co-op during my degree, meaning that I would graduate in 4 years.


So, lets say in my third year I did a semester of co-op in the fall and a semester of classes during the winter term, would that count as one of my years in the Best out of three for U of T?


My schedule would look something like this

27 credits from the IB


1st year: Full time student 27 credits

2nd year: Full time student 30 credits

3rd year: Co-op term and then school term with 15 credits

4th year: Co-op term and then school term with 15 credits.


I hope I was clear and good luck with admissions to all of you! :)

They'd probably look at 3 years' worth of a full courseload. That's my guess. We count our credits totally differently here.

    • 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
