    I know that DD5's scores (below) do not meet the minimum requirements, however, the psychologist told us that her processing speed dragged her fsiq down due to "perfectionist tendencies commonly seen in gifted children" so is this something they take into account? I can't decide if I should apply. Thanks to all in advance.

    Verbal IQ Score - 143 (99.8th Percentile)
    Performance IQ Score - 135 (99th Percentile)
    Processing Speed IQ Score -119 (90th Percentile)
    Full Scale IQ Score - 142 (99.7th Percentile)

    Maybe someone on this board can help calculate the GAI, which eliminates processing speed and working memory. I believe it will be in DYS range.
