Addendum for Psychiatric Disorder?
« on: February 28, 2013, 06:51:00 PM »
Hey All,
I withdrew from school for a semester during my third year to focus on medical treatment for my OCD. The treatment was successful, and upon returning to school my grades improved (2.6 pre-treatment/3.6 post-treatment)

For an application question about missing a semester, I was wondering whether anybody could advise me as to whether I should mention explicitly that the medical condition was OCD, or whether I should keep it vague and say it was a "medical condition."

Also, I was wondering whether I should add this info in an addendum to schools that haven't asked that question, to explain the trajectory of my GPA.

Any advice or comments are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
