Does having a disability like MS, make any difference in getting into law school? What I am really wondering does it make it harder? Also if anyone reading this has MS,please feel free to give any tips you may have for succeeding in law school. Thanks.

I have a chronic pain and mobility problems.  In my opinion, law school was harder for me than it was for a lot of my classmates.  Stress and lack of sleep make me feel worse - and there's a lot of both in law school.  I also found the experience a bit isolating, because I didn't feel like I really had anyone I could talk to about my health problems. 
Anyway, I think having anything less than great health is a disadvantage in law school.  Regardless, if you want to be a lawyer there's pretty much only one way to do it. If you want to go to law school - don't let your disability stop you.
