Just a question. A friend of mine has a son who has a serious learning disability for which he has been in special programs all of his educational life. This isn't the case of a wealthy kid getting an edge and it's documentable going back to elementary school. She was wondering how the colleges will view his low SAT scores and GPA. Do they "judge" (for lack of a better word) LD students by the same criteria? They applied to a few nice(ish) schools like UConn, UTampa, etc. She is planning to call teh colleges and discuss his situation with the admissions people and was wondering how that would play as well. Any thoughts?
