Admissions Advice

Is there a way to tell admissions councilors that you have learning disabilities
Answered

I have ADHD and possibly dysgraphia(getting tested currently) due to this much of my high school experience has been quite difficult and I spent most of it working on my accommodations. I think I would explain a lot about my GPA and grades. Would this improve my chances if there is a place to explain the issues?

thanks :)

Yes, you should definitely explain to them your situation. If you want somewhere to include it when applying, I think you can add it to the “addition information” section of common Application where they ask you about extra information about yourself you’d like to add
