Wow, I'm glad I found this community...I thought I was the only one returning to school after a gap. My situation is this:
Graduated high school in 2001
took a year off before college (2001-2002)
Went to college 2002-2003
Had to take another year off unexpectedly (due to a medical issue...2003-2004)
Back at school 2004-2005
So even though I'm a sophomore more, I feel like a freshman again because I had to do everything all over. It sucks. And I have to explain my situation to everyone cuz they're all like "you're a sophomore? I thought you were a freshman - didn't see you here last year". Yeah.
