So I was hospitalized for some shenanigans with my brain wanting to kill me and had to withdraw late in the semester. 4 classes now have W's and I don't know how I could explain that to admission staff at grad school. Is it appropriate to put such things on personal essays or am I going to have to go through some other route to communicate with them about this discrepancy? Fwiw my GPA is high and I will have strong research background when I apply in a year. Thoughts?
