All,

I know this has been asked before, probably, but my admissions consultant wants me to reference my recovery from an alcohol problem in an essay for Dartmouth. The essay asks about how you overcame adversity and what you learned from it. Do you think this is a terrible idea? It seems risky to me and I am not sure if I should do it. On one hand, I am very proud of my sobriety and I have matured a great deal and learned a lot from it. But I do not know how everyone could take it. Also, I have not really faced adversity other than this so I feel it would be the strongest topic.

Just looking for input.

That's pretty intense... I had a buddy that went top tier talk about recovering from getting hit by a car and broke his leg. They ate that up. Maybe it flies.

Sorry I can't be of more help than that.
