I'm a high school senior in the middle of the college application process. My gpa was low freshman year (3.0) due to a combination of immaturity and depression. I managed to turn myself around and pulled my gpa up to a 3.68 by the end of junior year. Now, during my senior year, I find myself struggling. My depression has resurfaced, and I received a concussion from hockey. These have drastically lowered my grades in my math & science classes (I'm planning on majoring in engineering). Many of the colleges I have applied to take mid-year grades into account for admissions, and I am freaking out about the downward trend my gpa has taken over the course of this semester. When sending in my mid year grades to colleges, should I make it a point for my guidance counselor to include a note that I had a concussion for much of the semester? If so, what is the best way to tell my counselor about my depression?
