CR/NCR due to Covid-19 *Urgent*

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

Is it true that the option of “credit no crediting” a course means that it won’t contribute towards your course load? For example, in winter 2020, our school allowed us unlimited CR/NCR options due to COVID-19. I had a course load of 5 courses, and I CR/NCR’d 2 courses. Does this mean that after the CR/NCR, my course load would be since as 3 courses instead of 5? Will this semester not count towards the B2 years? I’m super worried, can anyone please help me out? 

Thanks.

If you passed the course I'm pretty sure it counts towards the credits in your B2 but they just won't use those courses as part of your GPA calculation. So if you took 5 and two were CR/NCR it would still count as 5 but only those other 3 courses would be used as part of your GPA calculation.

As long as you had a full load both semesters it will count towards your B2. CR/NCR grades will not count towards the course load requirement (minimum 8 in a given year) for a year to be considered in your B2. For example, I did 5 courses in the fall (all graded) and 3 in winter (all mandatory CR/NCR) and that year will not count because I only have 5 grades they can use.

Not OP but I have a follow-up question to this (if you don't mind). Last school year (2019-2020), I CR/NCR two 0.5 courses which left me with seven grades/courses, however one was a full year so would that amount to eight total and therefore count towards B2 for Queen's? I hope that makes sense.

I think you should be safe then.... you will want to check with Queen's though.

    • True. Pandemic changes things; expectations may be different. I guess the point is do something productive. 
    • Fwiw, I had 4 Ws sprinkled throughout my undergrad (minor hopped). I didn't explain them at all when I was admitted to McGill back in the day.  Re: everyone else surprised by other stats. McGill is not just a numbers school. CV, references and letter of intent are all very important. 
    • JY from 7Sage makes the argument that, if the LSAT is important to you, you will do this. He is aware his schedule is more demanding than other study programs. If you cannot do a 34 hour per week study schedule, he would probably suggest taking more months to complete the program. Waiting until next summer to write the LSAT is not out of the question from this point of view, not is waiting until the summer of 2023! I, myself, am in your shoes. I agree with JY in theory, but in reality, I skimped massively on my study time. I am now waiting to get accepted to a law school with an LSAT below 160. I believe I would have a higher LSAT is I had done what JY told me, but I could not get the time off work. 
    • Yes? You're supposed to. If you're from out of province just have your school send it to OLSAS. If you're from ON then I think there's a way you request via OLSAS itself
    • Hello,  I was recently admitted to law school for Fall 2021. I am curious about what law students do in the summers between semesters. Is it typical or expected that you find an internship after your first year? Are there any organizations or businesses in BC or Alberta that regularly offer summer internships or work opportunities for current law students? Is there anything I can do in the months between now and when classes start to improve my chances of getting law related summer work? Thank you for the advice.
