Just to add... does being required to withdraw from an institution kill my chances? Haha, why send out more apps + $ if that's the case?

It's about a page long, which I just realized might be too long :(

Basically I was required to withdraw from a part-time University program when I was 18, only taking 4 classes (all year). I explained how I had to work two jobs, and was actually still taking high school courses at the same time. I then explained how I got back into school and my GPA has been around a 3.5 during my 1st degree, and a 3.6 in my 2nd degree. Next I explained how my academic awards and my GPA following this event are a better representation of my academic career.

Ugh, I'm just worried that it was too long. Does this hurt me?

Feel like an idiot, because I handed in like 10 apps already.


If you already sent it in, do you really want any feedback? Prima facie, being a page long is not going to hurt you - so long as they don't think you rambled. Ideally, it would be 1-2 paragraphs though. Definitly not worth sending them an update over...
