Should I mention a mental disorder?

<p>Do you think you could ask your counselor to mention it briefly in your counselor rec?</p>

<p>If you think it's relevant, mention it. Don't just put it in for the sake of putting it in, though. And I agree, ask your GC (if you're on break, just email him/her)</p>
