    FWIW - my daughter mentioned her dyslexia in her college essay. We didn't think it was a big deal, we're very open about her LD history and overcoming her LD was an important part of her academic life. Her admissions results... denied at reach schools, admitted at match and likely schools. I don't know that the essay made any difference or would have made any if it had been a different topic! :) No regrets at all, we've always figured if a school doesn't want you as you are, it's not a fit.

    Don't do it, if you don't want others to misunderstand that you are trying to gain sympathy.
