Just wondering if anyone knows how this works. I'm planning to transfer to UBC Vancouver next year. On the site it says the GPA they use to calculate will be taken from my 30 most recent credits. I will have completed 24 credits by the end of this year and in my second semester last year I completed 3 courses, receiving 9 credits. That puts me to a total of 33 credits (without counting my first semester last year).

They're calculating 30 most recent credits, but I have 33. How does this work and which classes will they use?

One day some of us will look back on the year and look at the chicago, and most of us will realize that it was a small bump in the road to the cup

It's Friday night. 10:22PM. I'm curious as of right now and looking for responses. I would have contacted them if they were available.

The problem is 'what is most recent?' My first semester last year I completed 12 credits, the second semester I completed 9 credits. This year my first semester I will have completed 9 credits, and my second semester will add 15. That's 24 credits being the most recent by the end of this present year. But the problem is there's NINE credits in the second semester of my first year. That in total gives me a total of 33 recent credits. There's THREE extra credits. That's the complication.

You kids and your instant gratification. The world isn't going to fall apart just because you can't get your answer on a Friday night.

Here's a suggestion: wait until Monday. Call UBC Admissions. Question answered.

People who label others as bandwagoners, people who tell other people "how" to cheer for their team, "how" they should act or what they should wear to "support" their team, people who only want to hear positive thoughts and don't want to read about how the team can do better - these are people who are insecure and uncomfortable within their own skin.

I'll support my team the way I choose, thank you very much. You can choose to support your team the way you want to, and I won't judge you on it as long as you don't try to force your beliefs on me. I'll also be quick to point out where I think the team can do better, because identifying that there is a problem is the first step to fixing it; denying or ignoring a problem won't solve anything.

Go Canucks Go.

Take whatever courses gave you your last 30 credits? I have no idea what seems to be so hard to comprehend.

Or just call Monday like others have suggested.

They'll take your BEST 30 credits, I'm pretty sure.

He has 24 credits that are obviously in.

The previous term, he did 9 credits AT THE SAME TIME. This puts him at 33 credits.

He is asking how UBC will determine what 6 of the 9 in that term they will count.

It's not an obvious answer.

Off topic, but be prepared OP.

They're nice people. But I swear all of them come to class high. They laugh at every little thing. If the professor drops a pencil, BAHAHAHAHA, if the professor tries to move a projector, BAHAHAHAHHAHA, somebody says a nucleus can have more than one nucleolus (which is true), BAHAHAHAHAHA.

But like I said, nice people. Richmond kids do that too, but they're not nice. They are really arrogant. They laugh more so at peoples mistakes or when someone asks a question (dicks), whereas UBC kids laugh at every little thing (stoners). Stoners>dicks.

Surrey kids have no idea what's going on. They don't laugh at anything. I grew up in Surrey, maybe that's why I can't stand laughter?

Buddy I called this EXACT situtation on here two years ago and was flamed, so I guess I have a bit of hockey knowledge, not to mention the 4 years I played in the OHL idiot.
