Taking less than "full credit" load?

Recommended Posts

I'm currently finishing up my 3rd year and planning on taking the LSAT this September. One thing that caught my attention is that some schools like U of T frown upon less than full credit loads (less than 5 courses per term). The issue is that I took a lot of AP courses in high school which fulfilled a lot of my credit requirements. So, I was able to take less courses. 

In first year, I took 5 courses, then 4 courses. In second year, I took 4 courses, then 4 courses, then did 6 credits abroad in the summer. My third year, I'm also doing 5 courses then 4 courses. 

The problem is that after third year, I've pretty much met all my degree requirements and only need to take 21 more credits. (So, it would be 4 courses and 3) 

Is this a huge problem for U of T and do I need to take more (unnecessary) courses just to take the full credit load for fourth year?

    • Does the teaching of the Charter in 1L and then federalism in upper years make any sense from your and your classmates' perspectives? This was a contentious issue among the admin and faculty, with the justification for the change being that federalism from the outset confused the hell out of 1Ls with no foundational understanding of law to work with, but some professors being (IMO justifiably) strongly opposed to the change since federalism predated the Charter and thus Charter litigation arose from the context provided by previous constitutional jurisprudence.
    • ISLR seems to be public law's spiritual successor given how almost everyone dislikes it right now.  On the topic of 1L rants, ISLR in theory could have been a great class.  However, the way it is taught turns people away from the content rather than engaging them, which I think defeats the purpose of having students respectfully engage with Indigenous issues in a legal context.
    • UVic publishes this demographic chart every year: https://www.uvic.ca/law/assets/docs/admissfinaid/LSAT-GPA Demographic Chart.pdf All but two matriculants scored 159 or higher, and the two that didn't had 4.0+ GPAs. 
    • Alright so I calculated a 0.819, is that accurate with my scores?  3.7/4.0 - so the ratio difference between 4/4.3 1.075 so I can just multiply 3.7 x 1.075 to figure out my 4.3 score correct?  So it would be 3.97/4.3.  LSAT: 160  I think I calculated right, if I'm wrong please someone let me know!
