Hi-I am a psychologist and have a wondeful client who is planning on applying. She has struggled in the past with significant anxiety, but has been extremely stable for the past 8 months. She does not know if she should disclose this history as she is worried it will either eliminate her from consideration or subject her to intense scrutiny that could greatly delay her acceptance (she was told by 1 person it could take up to a year to get approved and she should just lie). She is someone with alot of intergrity and I feel she is stable and ready for this experience. What do you guys suggest based on your experiences ? Feel free to email me directly at
Thanks in advance for your advice, which I will pass on to my client. Ph.D in California
