Well, the title sums it up. Feel that university does not meet expectations in content, it is death-by-powerpoint and that I am not making progress.
Trying to send emails to a few companies (i.e. open applications). There is a 2-year duration right now where there should have been a four-year university degree:
"I just dropped out" sounds incredibly negative.
I could try softening it over: "I'm taking a break from studying", but I think it would still be rather vague and will prompt questions at an interview, and I do not want to appear doing a bait-and-switch at that point.
Could try to say that "university course did not meet my expectations" but that again sounds rather suspicious/discouraging, and I don't think defending myself in an initial email is a good idea.
