  1. Hi there, I am currently in 2nd year (Life Sciences), hoping to do my first round of medical school applications in my fourth year. In first year, I took a full course load, and I intend on taking a full course load in third and fourth year as well. I have been living with a severe illness for my whole life. I am not registered with any disability offices or anything, because I am usually able to maintain a normal work load. However, this past year my health took a turn for the worse (many hospital visits, multiple surgeries, many missed days of school etc.) so I took only 4 courses per semester for my 2nd year. I am back to "normal" now and will be able to resume full-time status in my next 2 years of school. I am taking a full year's credit course over the summer to make up for lost credits. I have heard that not taking 5 courses per semester for the duration of your undergraduate degree is a huge disadvantage in your applications. Is there any way to get around this without being a registered disability student? I would really appreciate any advice on this! ps. I'm not sure if it's really relevant to this issue, but my cum. GPA is currently a 3.9 and I have maintained 3 ECs with fairly heavy time commitments.
  2. I am not sure if I qualify for the weighted GPA or not. I am currently in my fourth year of UG. I've taken five courses (0.5 credits each) each semester...however, in my second semester of first year I only took four courses (0.5 credits each). The other 0.5 credit I completed in the summer. On the UofT website it says that I need three years of full time studies to qualify for the weighted GPA. So what I'm wondering is, does the fact that I only took four courses in one semester disqualify me? Thanks
