One of the questions they can ask on the bar is whether you've had any history of psychological treatment. I can understand how you don't want a schitozophrenic representing the industry, but do they also ding you if you've had depression? Law school, bills, and career prospects can place a pretty heavy emotional burden on even the toughest...
What I'm getting at is if it's better to go see a conselor/psychologist to get depression treated, or go for the Bar first and then get it dealt with. Do you suck it up and let it negatively impact you throughout law school just to be able to honestly answer 'no' on that bar exam question, or seek help and hopefully see your performance improve in the interim? Same question goes for seeing a psychiatrist.
Any insights or tips?
