Should the internship be counted as ''interruption'' in study?

Postby yhchoi1687 » Wed Dec 14, 2016 12:28 pm

I took a leave of absence for one semester in my sophomore year to have an internship.
In this case, should I check yes for the question ''Has your undergraduate or graduate course of study been interrupted for one or more terms for any reason?''
Or this question only applies to circumstances like health-related issues, family hardships, etc.

Just to be safe I would mark yes and say it was for an internship. It says for any reason.

I answered yes when I took off a semester for a full time job. I would also answer yes for an internship.
