Each year I always miss a lot of school due to sicknesses, but this year, freshman year of high school, I have almost a month of days racked up wit the flu going around and all. My absences affect my grades in no shape or form, and I am amongst the top of my class. I was just wondering how this would affect the way the admissions office looks at me. Would my absences be detrimental to my acceptance possibility? Would this lower my chances? Would they see my number of days absent and toss my application aside? Or would they never even bother to look at my high school absences? I could use some advice. Thanks guys.
