Will my situation impact admissions in any possible way?

<p>Hi, I'm new to this forum, so I hope I posted in the right place. If not, just let me know and I'll be glad to comply.</p>

<p>I'm going to be a senior in my HS. Currently, I am the valedictorian of my class, my SAT I/II scores are good/great (depends on which score you're looking at), my ECs are pretty good and consistent, and I volunteer as well. My course schedule and ECs for next year will continue to be strong. But there is a catch (is it one? I'm not sure) - I've been deaf in one ear and hard of hearing in the other pretty much ever since I was born. Will this disability impact the admissions in a good way, bad way, or there's no impact at all?</p>

<p>Thanks for any help/comments!</p>

<p>The disability for most schools will help you more than hurt you as it shows you are able to overcome issues life throws at you.</p>
