Character and Fitness advice?

Postby shehadehr » Sat Dec 29, 2012 8:00 pm

So I thought this section would be easy all "no." Soon, however, I realized that there was a part about whether or not you were ever on academic probabtion? Fuck. I was. It was for one semester. The truth is Tufts was kind of hard sometimes so I slipped one semester. I will be sincere and mark yes, then simply explanation separately what happened.

Question: How do you think certain schools will interpret that part of my application? I know it's tough to say without more background on my entire application, and what it looks like so far, so, if anyone asks i'll provide all my softs, things that work positively for me, as well as negative things working against me too.

Thanks guys!

Its not a big deal esp since you obviously got off acpro and ur gpa is good enough for them to consider. They will buzz right over it with little thought. You are correct in assuming however that failing to mention it would be a c&f issue.

Plenty of people have to mark "yes" in the C&F to something or other. It's not a deal breaker if you've got a quick explanation.
