The EDUFAX Educational FAQ


Question #41:
  • How do 4 year liberal arts colleges consider an applicant with a learning disability who has GPA of 95/100, a PSAT score of 1200, has taken AP & Honors classes, doesn't have many extracurricular activities and comes from New England?
Answer #41:
  • You sound like a wonderful student and I believe that many competitive colleges would be delighted to consider you.
    It will be important to discuss your learning disability in the college essay or in a supplementary essay so that you can explain why you have less time to give to extracurricular activities. If it is possible, I suggest you work with an educational consultant who knows which colleges are particularly receptive to students like you and will consider your assets rather than your deficits. Some colleges have separate applications and review systems for students with learning disabilities; others require general admissibility first and then make the necessary accommodations.
    Your geographical location is not relevant unless you are applying to a state college.
    EDUFAX provides services for the Learning Disabled Student.
