I look at the SATs as replicating a lot of career choices that demand quick decision making and processing, and/or memory demands. I'm thinking of careers like a surgeon or a lawyer. I have an acquaintance who has dyslexia and became a teacher. She constantly teaches the kids to spell words incorrectly and apostrophise plurals. I think in this instance she shouldn't have received accommodations.

Personally, I could have received accommodations but I wanted to do it on my own to see what I was capable of. I still did really well and I know that I'm being hired for my raw ability.

I think that you are imagining a far bigger and wider ranging boost from accommodations than there actually is.
