Academic Interruptions?

Postby musicalmissionary » Mon Oct 04, 2010 10:35 pm

"Has there ever been an interruption of one or more terms in your education for any reason?" (if so, provide explanation)

My only "interruptions" were:
1) a 10-month Fall/Spring co-op during my undergrad (credited on my transcript)
2) 3 year career between undergrad and second degree
3) 3 year career between second degree and MBA

My personal statement already addresses my career changes. I shouldn't have to explain a co-op, should I?

I don't think so. I thought it only applies to us whose studies toward a degree was interrupted before the degree was granted.

I didn't think so, but it's been so long since my undergrad (10 years), and it was a full-year co-op, a 10-month fall/spring term followed by a 3-month summer term a year later, so it's not quite the same as a single bite-size summer internship.

I'm not gunnu sweat it then.

Well your co-op is a part of the approved curriculum so you are technically in school even though you didn't take classes. You will be fine.
