NeuroBatman Posted November 18, 2015 Share Posted November 18, 2015 Hi!! I am in the process of applying to graduate school for cognitive neuroscience. Unfortunately, as a fledgling youth, I failed a number of classes as I failed to drop them. Therefore, I am required to explain this failure in my application. I have written a short explanation and I'm wondering if it is adequate. Please let me know what you think. Also, this happened more than a decade ago. Thanks. As a young man, I was placed on academic probation at several community colleges (_______, _______, _______) due to failing grades resulting from poor attendance. At the time I was immature, unorganized and uncommitted to maintaining the academic standards demanded by these institutions. However, since that time I have redefined my character, refusing to let past failures defeat me. Both my transgressions and triumphs have served as an impetus for my recent success and when I returned to college three years ago, I did so with a fire in my belly—determined to unveil my potential as a student. This passion is reflected in the work I’ve done at ___________ College and __________ College, where over the past eight semesters I have maintained a 4.0 GPA. I am grateful for all of my experiences, both good and bad, which have bestowed in me the fortitude necessary to succeed as an academic. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
