    Yeah I wouldn't put it in. Although all universities should be non-discriminatory on mental health grounds, you're going to see a lot in Medicine and you need to develop resilience. I have depression & applying for Med too, and until the day that OH questionnaire lands after securing a place, I won't be telling them about it because there's no legal protection until then! Instead of justifying why you missed your offer, explain how close you were to it, and what the experience has taught you.

    I missed my offer last year too by the skin of my teeth just like you - I know how much it sucks and I'm really sorry that the competition is so severe that those small losses mean the difference between in or out :-(*
