Education interruption

Postby fire_ice » Sat Oct 26, 2013 2:48 pm

For many applications, there is a question asking whether "your education has been interrupted for one semester".
I used to be in a Ph.D program, but I left after 2.5 years and graduated with MS instead. Now I'm working.
Does this count as the interruption? I assume I will have to write an addendum for this?
How much do law schools care about things like this?

Hey there. If I'm reading the question's description correctly, it's asking if you had to take time off, usually to tend to some emergency or other pressing matter. But generally it's better to err on the side of disclosure, so I'd say yes, it counts as an interruption. Write a short addendum explaining why. Probably not a big deal as far as your admission prospects go.
