Student visa, reasons for non approval

Hello,
I'm an American student that has been recently admitted to ETH Zurich and I think I will be cutting it close as far as visas go for beginning of classes on September 18. But I'm hoping for the best.
My situation is this: I have a really big gap in my CV, about 3 years where I have been unemployed and doing a lot of traveling, attending German language courses and taking some courses at the local university in Germany (but not for a degree).
My question is, will this hurt my chances of getting a student visa?? Everything else is ok, I'm just worried they will look down upon this fact...has anyone had any experiences regarding this?

Thanks alot!
