Hi everyone, 

Question regarding credits/drops for schools. At UBC, it says that for a 3 year degree, they drop 6 credits, and 4 year degrees they drop 12 credits. I am applying this cycle, and after the semester finishes in December, I will have 115 credits. Does that count as a 3 year or 4 year degree? I will be graduating in April, so I am closer to a 4 year degree than a 3 year degree at the time of application. What is the cutoff for credits? 

Thanks!

120 to count as 4 years.  I think it's all or nothing, but you could always call and ask.

    • Haven't heard from all four (didn't apply to Gardiner), but v interested to know
    • I applied to Osgoode last year and at that point I had not taken the LSAT with accommodations and so I clicked no. Now that I am reapplying for 2019, I am being faced with the dilemma of whether or not I should write that I have been granted accommodations on my LSAT. Will this effect my chances if they know that I had accommodations and performed significantly better?
    • Windsor was the only school I applied to and I had a GPA substantially lower than yours. While I can in no way confirm this, I think that Windsor appreciated my decision to only apply there. I think it makes your stated interest in the school come across as more sincere. I think you definitely have healthy stats. Best of luck, hope to see you in the fall. 
    • This is up to you. I had a GPA lower than yours (currently a 2L student). I took the time to explain it in a way that demonstrated the positive strides I had made to try to improve my GPA. My first two years of undergrad were substantially lower than my latter two. Windsor really does look at everything that you submit, so if you can provide a sincere answer as to why your grades were lacking (if you choose to do so) then it's my impression that they will take that into consideration. Best of luck!
