Dyslexia on Adversity Essay?

Asked 1 week ago by Guest (120 points)

I was wondering if I should mention dyslexia in the adversity/challenge essays or if it would be looked down upon. I have maintained a GPA above 3.5 in college so shouldn't it be seen as having overcome it or have figured out how to deal with it and persevere?

I'm sorry if this question was already asked. When SDN showed me some related questions that were already asked, they were general "adversity" for the headline and when I clicked on 'view more' to see what they were specifically asking, I got a 'Page Not Found'

It's too hard to predict how any one school would view your dyslexia as an adversity or challenge, but I would think most would acknowledge any learning disability to be.  That said, only admissions officers could give you specific advice how their school would view that disclosure.
