Ubc Summer Courses

Recommended Posts

I'd like to apply this year but I have a bit of a problem GPA wise.. My GPA breakdown per year looks like this:

 

Year 1: 79.8%

Year 2: 86.6%

Year 3: 87.1%

And I'm currently in year 4 expecting a GPA of ~78%.. Family problems caused me to bomb last semester.

 

The DMD FAQ states that 'the drop year must have 24 or more credits and is not the most recent year.'

 

This would make me ineligible to qualify for an adjusted GPA. 

 

But I was wondering, if I take summer courses will these courses count towards my year 4 GPA? If they do I'd be able to get my year 4 GPA above 80 and would be eligible to drop my first year. But I'm not sure if these summer courses do count towards this years GPA or if summer courses the year of applying are even looked.

 

Hope this makes sense.

Apperently you can, It says you can on their website: http://www.dentistry.ubc.ca/dmd/dmd-faq/

Give admissions a call to double check and maybe even explain your situation, hopefully the person who picksup can help you out and clear some things up.
