Just curious. What will LS generally accept as an undiagnosed learning disability? ADD for sure right? How about Depression? OCD? Any others?

accept for what purpose?  and i would be suprised if anyone would accept anything that has never been diagnosed.

and is a treated condition a disability?  if it's diagnosed, presumably it's being treated.

My apologies. I meant a disability that was once undiagnosed but now is and could maybe help explain lower grades. A gpa difference of over 1.25 gradepoints before and after the diagnosis.

Oh.

They might take it into consideration, but I suspect they would want to see some indication that the treatment has improved the academic ability.  A high LSAT for instance.

I dunno about depression though.  That might not fly.
