Hi,

Since there are hardly any posts on GMAC accommodations ,I would like to share my experience on the same and try and help others who are out there.

GMAC does provide Testing accomodation to those out there who fall under the categories specified on the mba.com site.

You need to make sure your Doctor reads through the guidelines so that you meet the GMAC criteria.

If you are a valid case .I can vouch GMAC will do everything to provide you with relevant support.

I recently received accommodation by GMAC and Kudos to my doctor and specified guidelines by GMAC which helped me get accommodation in 25 days flat.

Some points to note.

1.You can only Fax/mail the accommodation.They are confidential medical documents and thus GMAC does not accept emailed/scanned copies.
2.After faxing the copies and the form,GMAC will revert with a receipt of acknowledgement within 2-3 days.
3.There no point or need to call GMAC for decision as the decision is emailed or a letter is mailed to you accordingly about the decision.
4.I sent my documents via fax.
5.After receiving accommodation decision you can activate accommodated setting on the GMAT prep by entering the accommodation code.

I largely recommend every one who is suffering from one of the ailments listed on mba.com webiste to try for GMAC Accomodation as it is indeed a boon for you.

Hi Gmad2015,

I agree that this is an important post, so thank you for taking the time to document your experience. Have you taken the GMAT yet? I'm sure others would like to know more about how your accommodations were handled at the Testing Center.

Hi Rich,

I was scheduled to give GMAT in Aug but cancelled it since I applied for Accommodation.

I haven't yet decided as to what date I will be scheduling my appointment.

Thanks for your post!

I only found out about the disability aspect in late August from a cousin who has a similar disability to mine, and who did it under certain circumstances, but in 2012.

My application was received by GMAC on Sep 2nd, but still no response. I know they say 26-30 days, but if their mean time is 7-10 business days, it's starting to touch that limit. If I may ask, how soon did you receive your decision?

What would really tick me off is if they require supporting documents and then take 30 days to tell me that. I know one is supposed to start this well in advance, but like I said, I didn't even realize that I more than qualified for one such accommodation.

Thanks for sharing


Hi,

My Application was received on 28th Sept and I got a decision on 25th Oct.

If they need anymore supporting documents they will share sooner but Like I said their guideline is self explanatory.

But there was no code for gmatprer. Could you advise where exactly it was locaed?

Thank you

Thanks for this. Won't help me, but is likely to help people I know.
Does the ESR or info sent to schools indicate that 'assistance' was provided?

Here is the link for others interested

The ESR is a very limited document that is anyway not made available to schools (it's for test takers). Score reports do not mention any accommodations taken.
