I don't receive any additional time or accommodation, but I have had to deal with a serious (mercifully non-permanent) brain injury. People with disabilities succeed in spite of their challenges, not because they are given an extra hour on an exam. I'm sure they would gladly trade their extra exam time for a life free of academic struggle, and the countless extra hours spent reading and studying.
Don't disagree with any of this in the least, just offering the other side of the coin. I actually have a mental disorder myself (OCD, which I tend to think actually has helped me academically, to be totally honest, although not in a pleasant way). I'm just avoiding studying for civ pro.
I guess that's my point then. I can see people arguing about specific enforcement standards. But it doesn't seem that most reasonable people, yourself included, actually takes the position disabilities shouldn't be accommodated.
