a bit random i know, but not sure where else i can ask this. have recently been diagnosed with depression/anxiety disorder, and wondering if any others are also going through this and still planning to attend bschool in the fall? i've been admitted to several top schools but not sure if i can handle it with this mental health stuff going on right now.

Talk to the schools, explain your situation and see if you can get deferred for one yr. If that works out, you can get the help you need and see if you want to try bschool again next year.

You most likely can handle it, so long as you are comfortable with it.

Most schools have outstanding medical facilities, support and therapists within their confines for students. Really - it is probably the easiest medical care of a high standard you may get in your life. The question is more how you feel about things and your ability to cope - given that you got in, everyone else thinks that you are capable as you are. So who knows what you can do with this improvement to your capability.

Feel free to PM me. I was diagnosed with similar over ten years ago, and episodes come and go (including during my MBA). There are plenty others it happens to also. The way I approach it is I would be pissed if it got in my way of doing the best thing for me - self confidence and nerves aside, I have been relatively capable.

As an aside, my diagnosis changed hugely when I came to business school from what anyone had given previously, as did the results. I wouldn't be so concerned about it, but - then again - the scale and symptoms of such things vary drastically.
