Looking for some varied perspectives on this..... I am considering applying for a really competitive summer internship that would be my dream come true. The admissions process greatly favors minorities, economically disadvantaged individuals, or people with disabilities. The only category there I could possibly fit into is "people with disabilities." I don't know if I consider myself disabled. I lost my pancreas to cancer as a child and I don't remember life without diabetes. This is my normal. In a way it horrifies me that I am considering it but in another way I feel like I deserve to check that box. Any thoughts? Is diabetes even a disability in this sense? Thanks.
