Absence from School Question??

Absence from School Question??
« on: October 17, 2006, 12:08:09 PM »
Some of my applications want me to account for the time I have been out of college.  My question is, should this be a well written flowing essay like a PS or should it be more like a fact sheet?  Does anyone have a sample Essay for out of school?  Thanks!

I think it depends why you were out. 

I took off a semester from school to do some full-time campaign work, and just wrote 3 sentences stating that.

If you took time off because of a problem, then I might take this time to explain fully what the problem was and why it is no longer a problem.

Submit an addendum no more than 1 or 2 paragraphs. Keep it simple.
