Right before medical school started, I lost hearing in my right ear. It's been a challenge to work through in medical school, but I ended up doing very well in both testing and in rotations. Should I make this the topic of my personal statement to show my personal experience with disease/medicine and tell a story about adaptability and resilience?
What does your student dean suggest? I wouldn't mind a little more context on when it really mattered...
