so my story is crazy. Ivy humanities science double major. 3.7 gpa. 4.0+ science. 99.9 percentile MCAT. Took gap year doing startups. Accepted few schools, accepted scholarship at decent ranked school. 1st semester managed out of state biz and didn't work hard at school. Got B's. No grades worse than B. Parent fell gravely ill. Took LoA. Didn't finish 1st semester. Took LoA for another year. Parent became better. Business took off. I can start school in August. But I want to request a LoA. I believe there is a very high chance the school will not approve and I will have to withdraw or attend. I was in severe debt following parent's illness and poor managemet of biz while in Med school. I am net worth 100-150k now. The 12 months off, I would make 800k at the minimum. I'm afraid I can't manage my business or trust others to do so. So my only option is to stop and attend school or possibly withdrawal and reapply again. If I withdraw with financial reasons such as this opportunity to secure a financial future for me and my family. I withdraw. And reapply after one year, will I even be considered?
