I am applying to medical school in June and am starting to write my personal statement. I have finally gone into remission after a year of struggling to find a diagnosis and dealing with my Crohns. Although I always wanted to go to medical school, this experience over the past year really inspired me to finally do it. I would love to speak to my journey with Crohns in my personal statement but am not sure if its too risky. Does anyone have any positive or negative experience with speaking to a chronic illness in their admissions essay?
