Although America claims to give an equal education to all, regardless of any external factors, economic class often plays a role in what type and how good of an education a student may receive.

Mr. Brenzel of Yale: It helps us to have specific information about disabilities, whether learning-related or other, because as the questioner notes, it can help us see accomplishments in context and also determine better if we will be a good fit for a particular student. But let me say this: How does it help a student proceed in education and life to be taught that he or she needs to be manipulated or packaged or even disguised in order to gain some imaginary advantage with a college admissions committee? Good students in this country have many, many choices among excellent colleges and universities, where their success is going to depend almost entirely on their own actions and decisions. My general advice to parents is simply to worry less about achieving an admissions edge and to focus more helping your student to be happy, enthusiastic, curious and well-prepared to seize opportunities.
