LSAT Accommodations for Disability under the ADA?

Postby Megan170 » Fri Aug 19, 2011 8:42 pm

Hi, I would be very interested in hearing information on the following:

(1) exactly what types of disabilities, classified as such under the ADA, folks taking the LSAT have been successful in receiving accommodation for from LSAC;

(2) which accommodations were requested and received, which documentation was necessary to receive the accommodation, and the process you followed in requesting such accommodation and documenting your disability;

(3) and, last but not least, whether the accommodation was reported with your LSAT score and your thoughts on whether and how this influences or has influenced the receipt of your score by the law schools to which you have applied or are currently applying.

As a note, I am a bit shocked by some of messages of hatred expressed by fellow LSAT-takers with respect to disability, and would ask that anyone wishing to voice this sort of intolerance of diversity please refrain from posting it in response to this particular post. I personally can attest that the people I know with documented disabilities are among some of the brightest of the general population, and deserve all the accommodation they need to equalize what disadvantages them. Given this reality, and the aforementioned request to not respond to this message with posts that constitute intolerance for diversity, and in the interest of transparency, please note that I will report each and every such response this post receives to the moderator. In this country, we have equality under the law, and the law currently affords a way to make equal what is inherently unequal by means of accommodation, among other remedies.

I don't have much to say about disabilities and the LSAT but they should definitely stop allowing the tards to make threads.

I hear you, Megan but the LSAT is very competitive. I don't think anyone objects to blind people or the hearing impaired having accommodations. I think they are more just in line with minor issues such as ADD, etc. They are not suggesting that such individuals cannot be lawyers. They are only suggesting that on a test of such grave importance, it is very important that LSAC reserve it only for those who truly do need it unlike the College Board.

As a note, I have reported all abusive content and am not asking for opinions about the competitiveness of the LSAT (we know it is) or who deserves accommodations or does not deserve them; we have the newly amended ADA and the professional opinion of doctors to decide that. This post is merely a request for responses to the outlined information. Thank you for respecting this.

It depends on how much money your daddy pays the doctor.

Actually, it wouldn't, because what you suggest would be an ethical violation. Also, last time I checked, women also pay medical bills. I would appreciate if you would refrain from posting discriminatory and uninformed comments here. I am sure the moderators would agree. Thank you.

I had a bruised tailbone and they let me sit on a pillow. Not sure how it affected my cycle, or if it was even reported, but everyone else was really jealous.

Publicly notifying someone that you reported them is extremely unprofessional. When the mods get my report you will be properly shamed.

You have dragged this thread off-topic in a clear attempt to mock those users with ADD. I hope for your sake the mods are in a merciful mood.

I find your neurotic infatuation with the mods to be mocking of those with OCD.
