Hello, Lauren and all.

I remember this stressful process too.

Some jurisdictions are better than others. NY updated their forms (I
also told them which parts were not accessible) to allow for pdf
formfields and digital signatures. I think they removed the
notarization requirement and other things?

I submitted all that I could, including pre-colledge (school)
IEPs/accommodations, accommodations from law school, medical
documentation, etc.

Some requested extended time, an electronic test, JAWS, a
laptop/braillenote, a way to print/transfer data, spellcheck, etc.
For me, I had to read my multiple-choice answers alowd and then had
them confirmed back to me so they could be scantron-entered.

Attached is a sample accommodations letter (I had to reformat so I
could redact).

Let me know if I can help with anything.
