I'm writing my motivational letter but I have a big doubt: Last year I applied for bocconi university but I didn't get the admission, I think because my grades were not enough high and I did a bad admission test (I didn't have the GMAT). So I took the bachelor's degree in economics in october 2012, I have increased my gpa and I have got the GMAT.
I don't know if I should write on my motivational letter that I had not get the admission last year so I preferred stop my study for a year, travel around the world, and retry to enter at bocconi instead keep going studying in a not so good university. I'm scary that the admission office sees my one-year-stop as a lost of time rather than a commitment in trying again to enter at their university.
Should I write my trip (where I have worked as a waiter and improved a lot my english) and the motives that brought me to stop my studies or should I write just a usual motivational letter in which I explain why I want to enter in their university but without mention that It's not the first time that I try to be admitted at their university?
