ok this is personal so not too harsh guys. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> im a UMR applying disadvantaged. my gpa is pretty low 3.12. i have shown an upward trend since the summer after my sophomore year, have good personal essay and EC's. heres the problem, i was diagnosed with clinical depression at the start of my sophomore year and the medication only made things worse b/c they caused me to lose interest in you studies and i kinda gave up on med school that year. the psychiatrist that had to go to changed my life and inspired me to pursue a career in psychiatry. she let me know that it wasnt too late and told me not to give up. i changed my major and now im doing fine. heres the question, my essay mentions the depression in about 3 sentences (thanks to the advice of my premed advisor), should i take it out all togather or leave the 3 sentences in before i submit? i've heard it may make things worse or may help.
