Warning! ERAS:Medical education Extended or Interrupted

Help me here, when I was in 4th year of medical school, I took a year off because my family was passing trough a really hard time, we were political persecuted and they had to leave the country. I stayed but took a year off while the problems solved. The thing is that in my MSPE my dean never mention that, so do you think I should mark the option that says that my medical education was extended or interrupted? Or I shouldn't mark it?
And If I mark it do you think It's going to be a big deal on my application?

Thank you

Default GAPS

Hey guys! I am currently studying medicine in Italy. I am a US citizen. I left med school for 2 years because of financial reasons during the pre-medical portion of my MD program. My school hasn't been recognized by the Cali board yet but it is not disapproved. I am supposed to graduate in 2017. I will take another year and a half off to complete USMLE steps and to do clinical rotations to obtain LORs. What are my chances of matching into a FM program if I get high USMLE scores and good LORs? Will those gaps affect my chances negatively?
