I'm trying to petition to get back into my college.

in winter 2009, I was diagnosed with biopolar disorder. i lelt my college, Collegeton College, immediately and have been receiving treatment in a mental health treatment center since.
previous to me leaving Collegeton, i had dropped and withdrawn from a lot of courses. last spring semester (spring 2012, my first semseter back since spring 2008) i returned to school but dropped
one course. i got decent grades that semester but because i dropped one course i was out of completion rate compliance. the school told me to do 40 or so credit hours outside of
school then come back to be evaluated. i told my psychiatrist about this and she voluntarily reccommeded that she write the school a note excusing my completion rate stating that i was misdiagnosed previous to winter 2009 (when i was still diagnosed with depression) and was on the wrong medication and treatment plan which account for my poor completion rate then.
i still decided to take community college over the summer and this current fall to strengthen my argument but got a D in one of my courses. So I'm just not going to mention that i took any courses since leaving Collegeton. My question is, what are some good things i could say to Collegeton if they ask me what i've been doing with my time since being out at school? i've been doing some things outside
of taking community college courses but really not much.
