Subject: MCAT (Medical School Entrance Exam)

Anyone have info on what if any accomodations are possible for someone taking the MCAT? Or, about medical schools which do not require the MCAT? Thanks.

: Ellen...if you have a docunmented disability any accomodations that had been extended toward you ,should be available for the MCAT. Thank goodness for the ADA. It protects all Americans with disabilities from unfair pratices. Get you documentation together and then call someone at the MCAT office.. should not be a problem. Jill

: require the MCAT? Thanks.Hi Ellen,Jill's reply is absolutely correct. It can be tough getting the accommodations, but do not give up. I assisted a student in getting the accommodations in taking the MCAT, so I know that it can be done. Be certain to have all of your documentation, especially your psychological evaluation that describes your disability and is very specific about the types of accommodations you have used in the past and why they are best for you. Be very specific about the accommodations you will need for the test. Don't be discouraged. Good luck to you. VEDA

Keep in mind that the MCAT is one of the standarized tests that still marks that you took it under accomodations.
