Your mental health or disability may be an integral part of who you are, but that does not necessarily make it relevant to a college application — and by no means do you have to discuss it. In today’s stream, Shravya will advise you on navigating mental health on your college apps, covering what you should disclose and how.

Undergrad College: Rice University '20
Work Experience: During my time at Rice, I mentored dozens of high school students through the college application process, along with editing essays and tutoring students for the ACT/SAT. I also interned at a medical technology startup, conducted research in Brazil, and gave a TEDx talk. I recently finished applying to medical school; I've been admitted to multiple schools, and will be starting in the Fall.
My Admissions Story: I remember feeling very blindsided by the admissions process and not knowing where to begin. I hope that sharing my experiences and some of the things I’ve learned along the way will help guide other students in a similar boat.
