    Have any of you who have been on interviews and have retaken a course, ever been confronted on it? or explained it in your personal statement?

    I repeated a course and was not confronted with it. The course was very early in my acedemic caraer. I am glad I wasn't because I didn't really have a good reason why I failed a interpersonal communication class, retook a year later and got an A. Long story short I used to be a dumb A$$.

    I had to explain a repeated course and a withraw in a secondary application. Never asked about it in the interview.
