So I'm currently in fourth year and my course distribution looks like this:
- 4 2000 level courses
- 4 4000 level courses
- 2 3000 level courses
Western's website says "While taking first year or second year courses is not prohibited, greater weight is given to upper-year courses." and when I called they said it might be better to swap a second year course for a fourth year course, but if I don't it shouldn't be detrimental to my application. 3/4 of the second year courses are known for being easier but I've completed my degree requirements and just have electives left which is why I'm taking so many second year courses.
Basically I'm trying to decide if it would be better to just stick with the four 2nd year courses (which is potentially frowned upon?) and likely get a higher GPA or switch one for a 4th year course at the risk of doing not as well in case the adcom actually cares about the courses I took.
Any advice is appreciated
