Extra time - please help!!

I requested extra time on the gmat (50%) and it's been over 3 weeks and I haven't heard back. Any advice? Getting nervous about timing especially because I have heard they often request additional supporting documents which will of course take them more time to review.

I had my doctor who I see on an ongoing basis submit a letter stating my disability and need for extended time along with a confirmed diagnosis of my ADD. I also submitted a personal statement letting them know I did receive extra time on exams in college.

Any thoughts as to if this will be approved with just these documents?

Thank you!!

Call the Pearson support people up and ask them for an update. Drop an email and ask them to send it up to a supervisor if necessary. And if by ADD you mean ADHD, you can also take a look here, if you haven't already done so.

Thanks for your help! I actually did call but they were not very helpful. I used the attachement you linked to put together my application for accommodations, but honestly not sure if they will approve since I don't have any testing confirming my diagnosis- only a letter from my doctor.
