addendum- what if you have a bad excuse?

addendum- what if you have a bad excuse?
« on: May 30, 2006, 07:54:20 AM »
i had a bad semester in which i withdrew from a class mid-way through. then i took a leave of absence the next semester, during which i worked in a deli. 

i did this because i was confused about what i wanted to do in the future and i lost my motivation, didn't feel like pushing myself anymore. i got over it, but temporary loss of motivation seems to be a bad excuse. 

how do you think i should approach this?  should i just not talk about it?  should i try to dig deeper and see if i can determine a better-sounding (but also true) underlying cause for the loss of motivation?

give me advice.

It might even help you- you can explain how, during this time you took to figure out what you wanted to do, you discovered that you really loved law and wanted to go to law school.  You then returned to school with renewed purpose, did great, and now are confident in the direction your life has.

If that's true...
