My undergraduate transcript does not reflect my ability, nor does it reflect the motivation I retain toward school today. It does reflect my poor handling of a difficult situation in the past, and my overall lack of academic focus at the time. It is marred specifically by my Spring semester of the 2001-2002 academic year. At this time in my life, I was living on my own and experiencing severe financial difficulties. Compounded with the fact that I lacked a specific career and educational goal, I had made the decision not to continue with my undergraduate education at that point. My decision came too late in the semester to withdraw, and consequently, I received 12 credits of failing grades. I reversed my decision the following summer, and returned to school in the Fall of 2002, achieving nearly a 4.0 for that semester.
I do think that if I had been more responsible and mature at the time, I could have better handled this situation and my undergraduate coursework overall. I deeply regret that I was not. Through my two subsequent years of graduate school followed by three years of work experience at two Fortune 500 corporations, I have become far more driven and focused on my career goals. I do accept responsibility for my past academic performance, and believe my current motivation and focus to be a vindication of, rather than a reflection of, my past.
Don't really have a good excuse, but I figured I better explain this anyways. If it weren't for this one semester, my LSAC GPA would be 3.23 instead of 2.95.
Have at it!
