Hi there! So, a little details about myself. I went from graduating valedictorian in HS to more than likely graduating with a 2.5 GPA (I am now a 4th year in college). I have been dealing with depression for a little over a year and I just now have found the right medication and support to help me function normally again. I am registered to take the MCAT September 23rd. Now my question is whether I should mention the reason behind my lack of performance in school in my application or just leave it as it is. I have heard from some people that mentioning how you have overcome your disadvantage and showing an improvement overall is worth mentioning. However, recently a fellow colleague told me that a psychology professor said that mentioning a mental disorder could put you up to discrimination and that its better not to mention it at all. So what should I do? I know I don't have good chances of getting in, but the doctor I shadow told me to go for it anyway (as in apply) because I have nothing to lose. I am of course also considering post-bacc programs. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!
