Full time - 1 semester at 14 credits?! If you there Tesla or future_doc please help!

Recommended Posts

I'm done with everything except one glitch in the system and I have no idea what to do!


As described in the help section of OMSAS, I only put two semesters worth of full time classes in my September 2009 - April 2010. HOWEVER, my degree was 4.5 years so my last semester was from September 2010 - December 2010.


As described in the help section, "For example, September 2010 through May 2011 should be recorded as 2011." I put my last semester in the 2011 year category. However, I'm not sure what to put for the duration section.


OMSAS defines "full-time" as "you have the equivalent of three full time courses or six half courses".


So would I be considered a full-time for my last semester which was worth 14 credits? I don't have the six half courses as they imply, but having 14 credits in one semester in my opinion is full time...


Input by anyone would be appreciated!!


However, for my last semester

Okay got it figured out!


So for anyone out there that has a degree that runs on a semester program and finishes after a Fall-December session would put it under "semester". Even though the help section in OMSAS indicates semester should only be used for trimester schools, people that have the 3.5, 4.5, 5.5 etc. are the exception.


Glad that's over. Finally pressed the submit button. Good riddance.
