UBC Med considers 10 courses/30 credits to be a full course load. I was wondering if having 29 credits in my second year will have a negative impact on my application? Should I be worried?

They say they consider a full course load as ‘approximately’ 30 credits. One semester of 29 is fine, don’t worry about it.

I wouldn't be worried about it negatively impacting your application by it seeming like you weren't taking a full course load. It could prevent you from being considered for adjusted GPA if you don't make up the units eventually though so keep that in mind.

I thought if you had over 90 credits they apply aGPA regardless of the number of credits you took in a particular year?

As long as you have 90 credits or more remaining when your worst year is dropped. I just meant that if OP didn't somehow make up those units they wouldn't have 90 credits. Assuming they are applying in their 4th year.
