Sara Granda missed the deadline for registering for the test because of a technicality -- she didn't include credit card information on her application, because she doesn't have a credit card.

The 29-year-old sent a check instead, but it wasn't processed because in a classic 'Catch 22,' she didn't have a credit card.

"I've worked really hard. It's easy to make assumptions that I should have done this or that but things aren't easily done in my situation," she said.

Sara was able to complete college, and law school, despite being paralyzed from the neck down in a car accident when she was 17.
