I know this is a ways away but I've been pondering whether or not my I have grounds to apply as disadvantaged. I reckon that on the account of the series of unfortunate events that occurred in my first semester that most would argue I was at a disadvantage. (See "Pre Med Issues Thread") Also, what exactly defines one as disadvantaged, and if you fit the bill, how would one go about explaining the circumstances without beating it over an adcom's head? (i.e. should I explain the situation in both the disadvantaged essay as well as the PS) Any advice would help, Thanks a ton guys and gals!
