In Reply Our longitudinal study focused on students who entered medical school between 2000 and 2004, examining outcomes for those who took the MCAT with extra administration time and for those who tested with standard time. Examining data for these entrants allowed us to study outcomes for students who graduated in 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8 years.

Information about USMLE accommodations and detailed explanations of students’ reasons for delay in graduation would have been informative. However, this information was not available.
