Personal Statement / Does this sound like a reasonable addendum?
« on: August 24, 2004, 03:53:27 PM »
I'm trying to explain why the 4th year on my UG transcript shows an entire year of enrollment, but only one year of classes.  Does this sound like a reasonable addendum explanation?

Although I completed my undergraduate coursework at the end of the fall 1999 semester, I deferred accepting my degree until the end of the 1999-2000 academic year. During the spring semester of that year, I took a leave of absence to intern full-time at the U.S. Department of State and returned in May to graduate with my classmates.

Personal Statement / Self-defeating essay prompt?
« on: August 20, 2004, 09:41:52 AM »
I have an essay prompt that tells me to write about a topic that has influenced my life and/or engaged me intellectually, but says my essay should not be a personal narrative.  Perhaps I'm being thick-headed (a distinct possibility), but how do I explain my thoughts on such a topic without it being a personal narrative?  Ugh.
