Mentioning mental illness in DS/GPA addendum
« on: October 14, 2007, 08:59:57 PM »
Seems like it's probably a bad idea, right?  Let's say that the candidate had some serious personal/family issues, has overcome them and is now interested in exploring law related to the mental health arena.  Is this something that could actually work as part of an addendum or should it just be avoided altogether?

Not an addendum unless it's impacted your grades, tanked your LSAT, or caused you to shoot someone in a parking lot. 

Makes for a great DS though.
