How long should an education gap statement be?

Postby olikatz » Sat Jan 28, 2017 9:02 pm

The question regarding "if you've ever experienced a gap in your education, please explain why" has a 500 character limit, but do I really have to fill it up? If I write 1-2 sentences, does there have to be substance to it or do I literally just give a quick explanation about it? Basically do I have to write about what I learned from the experience or what I should have done to avoid it?

it's going to be fact specific but my guess, without knowing more, is that your short statement will be alright
