This semester I had to withdraw from my anatomy class. I was dealing with two losses of family members so I was unable to do the amount of studying needed. I'm applying to the nursing program for the Fall 2013. (I'm taking A&P 1 Spring 2013 and A&P 2 Summer 2013) Should I give them my reasons for having a "W" on my transcript? If so, should I include it in my admissions essay or where would be appropriate?
Thank you in advance for suggestions!
