Any other students with disabilities for Fall '07 cycle?
« on: April 10, 2007, 02:13:28 PM »
Hi, does anyone else out there self-identify as having a disability?  I'm a c7 quadriplegic and attending law school in '07.  I'm pretty sure I'm going to Boalt, unless I get into Stanford too.  Even then I slightly favor Boalt--you can't beat the city or the school when it comes to disability rights and awareness!  Anyone else?

I'm a high-functioning autistic woman. I'm looking mostly at the University of Oregon and other schools in the PNW.
LSAT preptest scores: 164, 163
GPA: 3.4 and rising

Yes, I have Spina Bifida. How would you mention something like this?
By the way, good luck with Stanford! :)

Wow, good for you!  You give me hope for my autistic nephew. :)  We don't really know where on the spectrum he's going to fall as he grows up.  His autism is relatively mild, but we still don't know how he's going to do academically.  He's still in the first grade.

Cool, good luck to you guys.  The University of Oregon is a great school (I did my undergrad there). 

LatinoUIUC, if you want to mention spina bifida, you should do so in your personal statement to schools.  I wrote about my injury in my PS, and also used an addendum to explain how it had broken up my academic record (I broke my neck midway through college and dropped out for a couple years).

Yeah I have an enormous "package."  Quite the disability really.  I can't keep the women off me and it makes it hard to do homework.

f-ing hell, Tetris.
I was referring to your intellectual penis. Which is quite robust.

Jolie is creeping up on me.
