    I want to know how medical school admissions view on taking the MCAT with accommodations?

    I'm sure it depends on the specific accommodations. If they were granted to you (approved by the AAMC I'm guessing) then they likely have valid worth or medical purposes.

    Having juice to help regulate your diabetes? I'm sure that's understandable.
    Having extra time given to you because you have been diagnosed with ADD? That might not look as good (regarding your scores).

    But then again, I don't know for sure.

    I know that there is an asterisk on the mcat but I want to know do medical school know that exact reason why you received accommodations.

    No, but they'd find out if they wanted to.
