Hi Caroline, 

Although I needed to do the same process in 2005, I had plenty of time (I
thought) to get all of my paperwork in on time. It was a horrific process
that I hope I never have to go through again. At that time, there was no
chance to take the exam on computer. It is not accessible to us then, and I
am not sure if it is accessible today. I did have to keep on top of calling
the toll free number to be that squeaky wheel to make sure that I would get
all of the accommodations before the test date approved. I would have to try
to pull the test packet information, but I know that I asked for a reader,
scribe, (double) extended  test taking time, a quiet room, slate/stylus,
braille materials for the math portion, talking calculator,  and plain blank
paper to take notes in braille. This is all I can pull out of my memory for

Subject: [Nfbc-info] The Graduate Records Exam

Hello California!

I am having a blindness related issue and I am wondering if you all can

I am applying for graduate school at California State University San
Bernardino.  One of the requirements is that I take the GRE test also known
as the graduate record examination.  

If I were sighted, I could register for the computer based test today and
take it tomorrow.  

Since I am blind, I have to apply for accommodations.  The process of
for and getting accommodations can take up to EIGHT weeks before I can
take the test.  

I am so frustrated I cannot even say what I really think.  

Any comments or suggestions would be much appreciated!
