ADHD/Life Experiences good enough for applying discretionary?

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I am just finishing up the last of my law applications was just wondering whether it would be worthwhile to apply in the discretionary stream? I was diagnosed with ADHD part way throughout my university career which definitely impacted my performance beforehand. I later got some accommodations to help out with things. I haven’t taken my LSAT yet (will be writing in January, wasn't able to write earlier due to a ton of other life events/changes in career goals) but I would have a GPA of about 83% with drops according to a calculation I did a couple weeks back. I also have a ton of volunteering, employment, leadership, and research experience which I balanced throughout my undergrad and beyond- I'm not sure if this will help me though. Any advice is appreciated :)

If you have a diagnosis + documentation and it affected your performance, you should use that category - also, you'll still be considered under the general category (or I think people were in previous years? Maybe check this is still the case). If you have a high enough index you will likely be accepted under the general category. It doesn't hurt you at all to use discretionary, so if you can, you might as well. Not sure if the requirements are different between the applications, but make sure to double check!
