I am not sure how to respond to this question, "Does your academic record accurately reflect your capabilities?". I did poorly in the beginning of college and I was diagnosed with ADHD. after that I changed my study habits, worked harder and matured as a student and adult. My GPA had an upward trend afterwards. Should I mention this and how I was able to overcome my obstacles.

I would say yes, you should mention it. If the beginning of college made your grades lower, but you've consistently shown since then how you've improved, with a solid reason to back it up, then I don't think it accurately reflects your capabilities.

I'm in the same boat. First two years of school was a horrendous 2.5. Last two I averaged a 3.8 taking almost 19 hours a semester. I'm hoping they see that i've buckled down
