Nope. In any case, you're not going to get any sort of concrete answer to such a speculative question...

Nope...
What GMAC says about taking GMAT for disabilities:
"The ADA is intended to enable equal access, not to maximize outcomes. Accommodations must not provide anyone with an unfair advantage relative to other test takers. Instead, they should provide test takers with disabilities equal access to the GMAT exam."

@Morningstarbreaker- thanks for your question! But it is in fact a bit too vague to really give a concrete answer. Schools cannot be discriminatory so it should not hurt you- and of course I have no idea what you are talking about so it is hard to say here.Lots of people in the world have challenges- and so naturally the MBA applicant pool reflects the reality of life. We have applicants with cancer, death of parents and siblings, health issues like diabetes and bi-polar disorder... you name it. Generally speaking it is better to use your 20 minutes of time (give or take 10 minutes) with Adcom to tell them about your professional work and your career goals and how this school is a good fit. That is the driving factor regardless of any personal issues- if your disorder is a part of your story then it would be reasonable to share it- but I would spend more time on the professional accomplishments and post MBA goals and the other part can be part of a resilience story- but having a health challenge sadly is not as unique as you might think. I can't really say much more as this is not enough information to really give any useful tips. But best wishes in the MBA admissions process- and depending on what your actual situation is- there may or may not be a best way to handle this.

Thanks,
MSB

Yeah, this is difficult one to answer without knowing everything about the situation. Applicants with these types of issues have been very successful, but it depends very much on the specifics of each individual application. You won't get the answer you're looking for from one generic post on a forum.

You won't get really an advantage for just having this disorder, now if the disorder has manifested in some other way that has had some transformative effect on your life and your career this might be some good essay fodder that provides insight into your life journey and experiences.
