<p>*I know I'm not stellar but I think I have a chance??
*I dropped AP French at the beginning of this year because I was extremely depressed and couldn't participate or do my homework; I had to switch into a non-academic office-aid class and only have 3 AP's. I am terrified that schools will think I am in the class because I am lazy and don't want to learn, even though I am switching into speech and debate spring semester
*I was also diagnosed with adhd just last week but I didn't mention it. The fact that I have achieved all this WITH adhd is impressive, I am sure, but should I have mentioned it?</p>
