Advice on Accommodations Statement of Need

Hi everyone,

I'm applying for accommodations for the June exam and was just wondering if someone who has applied before could provide some guidance. I have the "qualified professional" statement ready to go, but is it necessary to also send my own statement ("Candidate Statement of Need") as well? If so, any tips for how to write a decent candidate statement? Many thanks!

    Yeah it's in the requirements. Tell them what condition you have and the symptoms.

    Hello there .. Yeah i just got accepted for mine, I had a small statement just explaining what its like for me, and then I had two professional statements. apply asap and also be patient bc twhen they say they'll respond within 14 days they mean it it took them all 14 days to decide i was going crazy waiting for the answer.

    Also make it sound as bad as possible without lying. I know this goes against LSAT logic, but strong language is helpful here. :smile:

    Personal statement and statement from doctor should be enough. If you tell your doctor just how bad it is, she'll probably make a stronger case in her statement as well.
