Bad idea?

<p>OK, I'm one year removed from high school and I was actually accepted into an out of state school with a significant scholarship.
However, a visa problem prevented me from attending and now.. I've kinda changed my mind and decided to go to an in-state school.
Would it be a bad idea to mention this in my essay? Or better than trying to hide the fact?</p>

<p>plz.... I need help</p>

<p>I don't think I would boast about that.</p>

<p>I would mention it in the application instead.Unless of course,your essay is about your scholarship obviously?</p>

<p>Why would you want to mention that the in-state school wasn't your first choice? Don't mention it!</p>
