Title: "overcoming adversity" topic?
Post by: bruins5261 on December 12, 2007, 10:59:20 AM
would it be terrible for me to write about my struggle with depression in college for an "overcoming adversity" statement?  i could make it interesting but i really don't want adcomms to think it could interfere with my studies or my ability to work under pressure.

i think it should be okay, as long you show that the problem is in the past.
