Is there any explanation for how Barclay managed to graduate?

Every single episode he's in is like a case study.
If we're to believe Jake's comments in "Nor the Battle for the Strong," they're required to undergo a psychological profile during their training. Perhaps the issue is not whether an officer has a behavioral problem but whether the problem in question is treatable. Barclay may have carried a diagnosis and been treated prior to his coming aboard Enterprise. That wouldn't explain why things changed once he was working for LaForge, but it may be why he was still in the service.
