How to address first-year courses in third and fourth year?

Recommended Posts

So, basically I didn't really think about how adcoms would perceive a student taking first-year courses in their third and fourth years (I know, dumb of me) so I'm wondering if anyone has any insight as to how I should address this in my PS, or if I should even bother. I took some intro poli sci and environment courses late in my degree because the fields really interested me, that's all...is that a good enough explanation?

Agreed with above answer. Mentioning this in a personal statement would a waste of words, and electives are all about diversifying. You can bring up the subject matter if you want, but it will not be perceived as a weakness.

Don't bother, there's a number of reasons why you might have to take them in your last year (requirements, pure interest, diversifying courses etc - I'm taking one right now out of pure interest in Indigenous issues). They will see your whole transcript anyway and be able to see you've (presumably) not taken exclusively 100 levels.
