SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) So I'm trying to figure out if I should put this stuff in my personal statement or explanation statement, what do you guys think? I had a really bad time in undergrad (which was over 10 yrs ago now). There were several things going against me. I had to work while taking full course loads, my parents went through a difficult divorce that I was thrown in the middle of, and I was diagnosed with ADHD, and prescribed way too high of a dosage of medication and developed severe anxiety which I didn't recognize until years later when I quit the meds and my eyes were opened up. Now being off medication I'm rocking my post-bacc work. I may have to have some of it in my personal statement because there isn't a lot of room in the explanation statement. ???
