    Hi guys, so unfortunately my freshman year first quarter I overslept and missed one of my finals in a remedial math class and got a NP. I took calculus next quarter anyway and got a B+ and I passed my entire series.

    I was wondering because there is a section in UOP's app that has you explain any extrenuating circumstances on your application and I was wondering if I should mention the NP or if I should just leave it alone. I heard I shouldn't admit to oversleeping because it'll make me look worse but I'm not sure how to exacly handle this situation. Its the only NP or anything less than a C+ I have ever gotten in college.

    Can anyone offer advice?

    Thanks

    If they are curious they'll ask. Otherwise, don't bother to bring it up.
