Test site moved to different building - I made a "dry run" the evening before and located the building, room - so, I thought I was prepared. WRONG.

No signs on the entrance doors advising of change.

Arrived at the building and went to rest room - made my way to the test room with about 5 minutes to spare (wanted to avoid the "obsessing" I've seen many students do) and the room was dark. No sign on the door. Nada. Went down hall and found another entrance to the "room" and a sign noted a change to a different building and to the fifth floor. WTF?

Not being a student at that university - I had no idea where the "correct" building was - no directions or anything. Ran out and finally found a student that pointed me to the correct "building". Problem with the building is that I managed to find 2 entrances that did not connect to the main building before I found the entrance that connected to the elevator/stairs. To be fair there were a ton on SIGNS/INSTRUCTIONS & WARNINGS at the entrance of this building about the LSAT. I didn't have time to read them though.

Finally made it to the fifth floor and a man (I presumed to be the proctor) was in the hall and asked me if I was here for the LSAT. No kidding. There should have been signs on the original building and if he was to "direct traffic" I'd think that being at the original site would have really been helpful.

THEY SHOULD NOT PRESUME THAT EVERYONE TAKING THIS TEST IS FROM THAT UNIVERSITY!!!!!

Anyway, I was annoyed. My calm demeanor had melted in the heat/humidity as I raced to find the "right" room. Arghhhh! I may have felt different had I not checked the evening before - but, really?

So started the test hot and melting like a popsicle in the desert. The room was uncomfortably warm at the beginning. By the 4th section one of the proctors was having to use his hanky to keep the sweat out of his eyes. The door was closed and NO air moved in that room. A girl in front of me came back from the break smelling worse than when she started (the smoke odor surrounded her, much like the dust around Pigpen) from a ciggy break (I have no idea HOW she could have got to smoke - not supposed to leave the floor and no smoking in the building) so the odor that lingered off her combined with the oppressive heat made concentration difficult. I was nauseous beyond description.

The other proctor circled the room - it made me uncomfortable to have someone stand behind me that often. Really unnecessary - only 22 students, in small desks with rows between us. Any movement added to the heat!!!

I know that the eagle eye proctors had to see folks fanning themselves. Come on - open the door of the small room - get a fan or something.

-or-

Maybe not testing on the FIFTH FLOOR in a classroom building with poor environmental controls in the SUMMER might have been a good idea. The ORIGINAL room was on the first floor of a different building (that seemed to have more offices - hmmm..) and felt quite cool.

The proctors were efficient for the most part (save for the room change and the planning and notice that went into that!) - they just seemed uninterested in the testing environment. Time felt long - I was the last to arrive (could have been room change) at almost 1230 on the nose. Started at 1315 or so and went all day (out around 1730).

Desks were small & uncomfortable and no space for pencils, watch or anything. Had to switch between test and answer sheet and actually kept the pencils wedged in my lap to avoid ping them.

Considering canceling my score - I have a decent score and felt that this would be an opportunity to improve. I spends months preparing and took several weeks off my real job to be as prepared as possible - and all for nothing. The conditions were just not conducive to testing. If I had been in a class or lecture under the same conditions I would have left it was so uncomfortable.

Very disappointed. What a waste.
