Half-day at school for work... should I explain why?
This year I am getting a job and taking a half-day off of school to do so. I have all of the credits I need, and there are no advanced classes available for me to take in the morning anyway. Will colleges be mad about this? Should I state this in the additional information section, do I need to explain why I got a job, or anything else? Thank you.

You should definitely describe your reasons for why and what the job is. I don't think colleges will look down on this, especially if it is a job that intrigues you(maybe less so if it is simply at a McDonalds or equivalent). It should not harm your chances to be accepted but if you explain it well it may even help!
