I always hear that people who are bad at communicating are eliminated at the interview stage in application processes. Are medical school looking to cut poor communicators? Are people with speech disorders discriminated against even if it is a handicap? I'm a year from applying and the only part of my application left that I need to be concerned about is how I'm going to present myself to medical schools (essays & interviews). I had speech therapy from the ages of 4 to 11 and I still have trouble speaking articulately. Can anyone who applied with a speech impediment describe their experiences?
