This problem is really upsetting my fellow peers and I. Our class has about 68 students. Last semester we had 6 people claim ADD/disabilities to get extra time. (ex. 3 hour test/they get 6) Out of those 6, 2 made top 10%. Now those numbers don't sound to bad, I can live with that. This semester we have almost triple the amount of people claiming ADD/disabilities. Talk about a total curve buster. You know I understand when someone has gone their whole life and lived with a disability or ADD and made it through high school and college with the help of drugs and/or extra time, but it seems ridiculous how our school lets people go their first semester (make passing grades) and then let them the second semester get extra time because between the fall exams and the spring exams a student miraculously discovered they had a learning disorder (it's law school, it's suppose to be tough). Also, these students with ADD/disabilities have no problems when they get called on in class, in fact they seem to be sharper than the average student. Should the school not give them extra time to brief a case in class? There are several options for schools that allow extra exam time that would solve the problem between a student with a disability, who can finish the entire exam and have extra time to spell check every word, and the average student, who can't get everything out and has 1,000 typos. First, the school could make every student claiming "extra time" be checked out by the same physician before being granted extra time. Therefore, everyone would be held to the same ADD testing. You and I both know of a doctor who we could get to give us the right paperwork for the right price. A school appointed Dr. wouldn't allow frivolous claims. Second, the school should look at when this disability came about. I think that if a student makes it through college without any help, the school should not extend this extra time. Third, the easiest way to fix the problem is just grade them separate. Let them have their own curve and let us have ours, this is easy, economically efficient for the school, and it would still accomplish the average G.P.A. that most schools have set. Until something changes I'm just going to keep bitching and let the one's who fraudulently get extra time, get what they deserve. I don't think the Court's favor granting extra time because a particular counsel hasn't been allowed enough time to prepare their case.
