Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So. Seven years ago I flunked out of college spectacularly. The usual story, wasn't ready, wasn't mature enough, and had depression on top of that.
Cut to the present. I've gone back to college (community college for now, going to transfer to a four-year after that) and all is going well, hoorah.
I'm applying for a scholarship that requests all previous college transcripts but, unlike most scholarships I've applied for to date, does not have any space for "tell us miscellaneous data you want us to know", which is where I would normally explain why I flunked out years ago. It does require an essay. I could possibly try to work the information in there. I'm just worried it will sound awkward. ("My career goals are blah blah, I can't wait to get a job involving blah, and BTW don't worry about the flunking thing I won't do that again olol!"
Should I just turn in my old transcript without referring to it, assuming they'll see it was 7 years ago? Try to work it into the essay? Just not turn in my old transcript? (I'm afraid to do this, though.)
