Hey guys I am new to this forum, but here is my situation.
I'm 21 and 3 years ago I herniated my L4 L5 disc, which included sciatica. This ended up being the most painful experience of my life. I refused surgery and kept the treatment conservative with physical therapy. While these injuries last about 6 to 12 months, the pain from the injury has lasted 3 years. During that time I attended the University of Washington. Due to the injury I struggled in school because I had a physical obstacle that made my grades suffer resulting in a cumulative GPA of 2.81 (pre-engineering courses were taken). When I applied to Industrial Engineering I wrote about my circumstances and ended up getting rejected from the major. The issue is that this circumstance is really rare so I don't think admissions understand how this injury affected me every day for the past 3 years. I am going to talk to admissions, but I am unsure of how I can communicate to them the extent of the injury. Should I find studies on this to help explain my case? Any advice is helpful. Thanks!
