Diagnosed with ADHD; should I mention it?
I was diagnosed this summer with ADHD, and I feel that it has had a huge impact on my life and where I am now. It finally makes sense to me why I put twice the effort my friends put in and still came up short. My GPA is exactly the average (mean) early from my top choice, although my SAT falls short from the average. I'm going to become a senior in the fall.
Do you all think this is a good topic to use in my college essay? I'm worried, though, that the university I want to apply to (JHU) doesn't have any support for students with disabilities because of its position as a top tier school. I'm also afraid that they might think I can't succeed at their university because of my disorder. What do you all think?
