I was a student at a prestigious university and had to medically withdraw for mental health reasons after attempting suicide. My GPA was in ruins (1.8). I'm now attempting to apply to another school after excelling in several courses there and at a community college. I was recently scrolling through College Confidential and saw a comment that mentioning mental health, suicide and eating disorders is a sure way to always be rejected. Is this true? How else am I expected to explain my poor GPA, or answer essay questions that ask this of me?
