Hi, so I've been studying for the GMAT for a few months now, planning on taking in May. I figured now was the right time to start thinking about testing accommodations. I have ADHD, and my processing speed super slow, especially for math. I have received 50% extended time for my SAT, my LSAT, and have used them for every exam at my university. Needless to say, without accommodations, I wouldn't even come close to finishing exams.

That being said, I read it's difficult to get extended time for the GMAT with ADHD and this has been worrying me. Is it really that difficult? The last time I took an evaluation was roughly 4 years ago, and I'm also a little concerned that it is too old. Can anybody give me some advice on applying for an extended time to ensure I receive them? Also, if anybody knows of a consultant I could hire to give me advice on the topic or go over my accommodations essay, that would be helpful as well.

Thanks!
