Postbaccalaureate classes?

Postby MichelFoucault » Thu Jan 07, 2010 4:40 pm

I will be graduating this month. However, i am considering taking math courses after graduation. Is it true that undergraduate courses taken after graduation do not count towards the LSDAS GPA calculation?

Yes, once you've graduated, your UGPA is set in stone. If you want to raise your GPA, delay your graduation.

Why would you waste your money?

Well where I went to school and would be taking the courses it is very cheap, around 400-700 per class. Second, I am not set in stone about law school so would like to take courses in math so that I might be able to pursue careers where more math is needed. Third, I really enjoy math.

No desire to raise GPA, only to protect it. (currently 4.08 LSDAS GPA =P)

Maybe you should think about what you wanna do first.

My point was, self-teaching is a whole lot cheaper than being "educated".

Let me clarify; I would be taking the courses in order to fulfill specific requirements for specific masters programs. So self-teaching has only a limited place.

I came to this conclusion after thinking heavily about what I want to do. I figured it would create more options in areas where I am interested while giving me more time to really figure out what I want to do. All while studying something that I was good at and enjoyed. (Seems like a win-win now. These forums are really good at forcing one to think critically about whatever is posted.)
