Our numbers are very close. Do you have any other significant soft factors (such as WE)?
I've been out of school since 2000. I went to film school, so I've spent the time since trying to set up projects and such. While this is certainly "work"... it's not the sort of thing that can really be explained on a resume. Anyway, I found this to be pretty polarizing. Schools either seem to dig it, or they don't get it and assume it means I've been on the couch watching Oprah for four years.
