Guys,

I am an adult that was never as a child diagnosed with ADHD/ADD.

I talked to my doctor and he think that I have it so I am going to go get tested.

All through undergrad I failed miserably and dragged myself through it because the thought had never crossed my mind.

All over the AAMC website I read that a long academic history needs to be shown to get accommodations.

What does a newly diagnosed adult do in this situation?

Also what kind of accommodations have ADD/ADHD patients received in the past?

Thank you

The only accommodations I've ever received was extended time on the Illinois Test of Academic Proficiency (TAP). Instead of five hours to complete the exam, I was given ten hours.

I was diagnosed as an adult. I told my psychiatrist I was taking the test and he wrote a letter stating I had ADHD and I would benefit from accommodations. The process was fairly simple.
