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).

    • Travel to Sky Bar from four seasons by Bus   Four Seasons Hotel   The hotel is housed in a beautiful and modern 20 storeyed building located on Orchard Road. The hotel is considered to be a residential paradise within itself and is just minutes away from some of the best shopping centres, family attractions and the major financial district of Singapore.   The hotel is at a distance of about 22 kms from the Changi International Airport and takes upto one hour to cover this distance. The distance being quite huge the fare would make a hole in your pocket if you end up booking a cab. Why splurge on unnecessary things as you are starting your vacation here. I decided to cover this distance by Bus and booked my bus tickets from this website called redbus.sg . I was quite surprised as the bus arrived as per departure time and reached Four Seasons Hotel in time.   The hotel is just10 kms away from the center of the city which measn you are just steps away from the shopping and entertainment district of Orchard Road as well as the Botanical Gardens of Singapore.  There is a restaurant within this hotel known as the One Ninety Restaurant which is famous for its uniquesly decorated warm woods. The hotel is known to serve and specialise in international and singaporean specialities like laksa and wonton noodles. It is a 5 star hotel and a stay here cost me around 350 SGD. The hotel has about 255 guest rooms and a full serviced spa where you will be pampered like a kid. The hotel also has 2 indoor and 2 outdoor tennis courts and a modern business centre if you are planning to stay in this hotel while on a business trip.   The best way to reach Sky Bar KLCC was by Bus as all other means of transport were either full of traffic or proved to be costly. I boarded a bus from Orchard Road Bus Stop which is just 7 minutes away from the Four Seasons Hotel. The bus dropped me off at KLCC Bus Stop in Malaysia which  is just 10 minutes away from Sky Bar. The total duration of the journey was about 10 hours and i did not have to wait for long as there was a bus every 1 hour.   Sky Bar KLCC   Every evening the Sky Bar in KLCC Malaysia is beautifully eliminated with jaw dropping lights.  It is a glamorous cocktail lounge which is set on the 33rd floor of the Traders Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. Sky Bar is considered to be one of the coolest venues when we speak of the nightlife of Kuala Lumpur. This place is recommended for its good location and pictursque views of the city. The bar is completely surrounded by Cabanas and a huge pool on one side. The bar area has some high stools and are in different colours. I found this quite pleasing for my eyes. While I was sitting and having my drink the panaromic view was simply impressive.  It made me feel on top of the world.

       
    • Solus is right and I'm not really sure that an 84 is that much better than an 80 anyway. 
    • Im so confused. The average gpa is 3.36 and lsat is 158. OP has basically no chance of not getting in...
    • I got in last year with worse stats 
    • I have nothing to add on the whole marriage name thing, but as far as social media goes, I would absolute recommend going by first and middle name, or some combination of not your real name. Otherwise, make sure everything is locked down as tight as can be to friends only.
