Extra undergrad courses after completing 120 credits

Recommended Posts



Does anyone know how will Ottawa med school look at someone who has already done 120 credit without graduating and who adds a minor to complete a 5th year. It is not to boost my gpa , but it is because I was a part-time student during my first two years so since I am now in my fourth year, I am thinking to add a 5th year to make my 3 th, 4th and 5 th year for uottawa. 

Does anyone has a success story by doing extra classes that won't give you credit for your degree?

Is it better to do a second UG ?

I am in my fourth year. 

I only need 30 credits to finish my degree, but since I was part time for my first and second year ( for medical reasons) , I decided to stay for an extra year.  At the end of my 5 th year my transcript will show the grades but some courses wont't have credits since I will be doing more than 120 credits. 

My gpa for my third year is 3,925 and I expect something similar for my fourth year.
