I am applying for a M.S in Statistics in North America. I received a "C+" for my undergraduate topology course.
I am not sure whether I should explain that or not for two reasons. First, topology does not seem to be related to statistics anyway. Second, even if I explain that I was not feeling well, I have no evidence (since it takes forever to see the doctor here), so explaining it might actually make admission officers think I am lying. What should I do?
- Explain even though I do not have proof from doctor
- "Explain" but not mentioning the cold, just say something like "I will grow" (which I think it's technically lying?)
- Say nothing
