I am curious as to what this statement means: "Performance courses are counted towards the required minimum 90 credits but the grades earned in such courses are not usually counted in computing the academic average."

1)Does "performance courses" refer to jazz/concert band/choir courses?

2)Does it also refer to music history courses to? or are they counted as towards your cGPA?

Thanks!

1) Yes, among others.

2) No, at least if you're referring to the kind of music history courses I'm familiar with, which involve no performance.

I don't think this refers to performance-based courses that are graded. It was my understanding this referred to performance-based courses that are "pass/fail." (i.e. not performance as in "music performance")

Thanks for the reply! However, if it is referring to pass/fail courses are they be graded in the first place? It says "grades earned in such courses"...

Good point - and full disclosure - I never contacted UBC to clarify this, so you may want to do so yourself.  But as a performance major myself, I find it hard to believe they wouldn't consider any of the undergraduate courses/grades in my degree program. If that's the case... brutal (I highly doubt it though).

    • Mind sharing in PM? I got invited to in firm on Monday and breakfast on Tuesday. Would like to know what I’m getting myself into lol
    • That's a shame. I get more for every hour billed. 
    • I was just going to ask this. I have heard that, in some cases, it really can be worth it. 

      However, at times, I doubt whether my hours will really contribute to the size of my bonus. Does it really matter whether I'm 200 hours over or 300 hours over? If all of my colleagues hit the target plus some hours won't we all just get about the same amount? We don't talk about it here (obviously super faux pas to ask fellow associates what their bonus was) and a part of me believes that the difference in bonus between an associate with 50 hours over and an associate with 300 hours over is marginal.
