I temporarily came to the U.S. before I turned 16, I left the country after a month stay, returned after approximately 2 years and continuously stayed since then until today when I am 30. I graduated from a U.S. high school and university. Do I qualify for DACA if my presence in the U.S. was interrupted from 1998 to 2000?
Based on what you say it would appear so. You should consult with an attorney to ensure there are no other issues that would render you ineligible.

I agree with my colleagues. However, you say you we're not in the country from age 16 to 18. Meaning you entered as an adult. May be another significant issue. Do consult an experienced immigration lawyer for guidance.
