So you don't generally need extra time for your college classes, and it sounds like you don't need extra time for the LSAT either, since you already showed you can outscore the majority of testtakers. Good job, sounds like things are working out for you.
I do need extra time on exams, maybe about half of the time (it varies from one semester to another and I'm just speaking about fall 2011). Most of that need is due to slow processing speed but a significant obstacle can also be my handwriting problems if an exam requires a lot of writing.

That's a blatant violation of IDEA as it is by far the MOST restrictive environment, and for schools to be in compliance with federal regulations, students are required to be placed in the least-restrictive educational environment. Would you mind elaborating a bit more on that situation? (This is not a gotcha kind of question - as a teacher with a dual sped/math 8 - 12 certification i really am curious and also a little horrified that your school district did this).
What are you talking about?! Please explain further. My school was not too restrictive!
