Should I mention my poor first semester on my grad school application?
My first attempt at college went awful (undiagnosed Asperger’s). I have a really, really low 1 semester gpa. The following year I started again at a different school and finished with a 3.8 gpa. I now am applying to grad school after 2 years of working. I have essays.
Should I just let my huge upward swing and quite good and unique experiences speak for themself or should I mention it briefly?*
*I will not mention my diagnosis, just that I was overwhelmed and have matured since
