I plan on putting a TON of work into essays/personal statements this summer.
I severely dislocated my knee TWICE (From football and then basketball). The second time it gave me a concussion as I hit the ground and required major surgery, but it had to be delayed because of my concussion. As a result, I racked up 11 abscences 2nd semester sophomore year and my GPA took quite a huge hit. I will explain this on my applications.
Thanks for any feedback, I will obviously go all out senior year to raise the GPA, any other tips would be awesome!
