I can't help but feel discouraged or worried about my chances at getting admitted because of 2 gap years. I'm currently on my second gap year because of financial issues & COVID-19. My family decided that it was best if I were to stay in my country rather than leave to a different country because of the ongoing pandemic. I am a low-income U.S citizen living abroad. EFC is zero, and I JUST discovered of QuestBridge a few months ago and am applying through QB this year.
Yet, I feel like my second gap year will be taken as a negative to AO's. Is applying through QB going to help? I'm just really worried about that but I'm wondering if this is even a matter worth worrying about...
Are 2 gap years going to ruin my chances at admission, especially for QB? Any advice and input will be very much appreciated!! Thank you all!
