Room assignments were determined by last name. The end of the alphabet (including S to Z, at least) was assigned to Krost Hall Law Center (www.uh.edu/maps/buildings/?short_name=kh). Imagine an IMAX theater, but with each seat having a fold-out desktop; now throw in bright lights and sound-carrying acoustics—that's Krost Hall. ... The fold-out desks were miniscule in surface area: they fit the scantron or the folded test booklet, not both—however, given people were sat in every other seat, it was possible to claim a neighboring fold-out to house your pencils and erasers and whatnot (here's a pic of the room: imgur.com/TYXCtdb). I was able to park in the "19C-Student Parking" parking lot, accessible via entrance 19 (off Calhoun). WARNING: If you legit have ADHD, avoid this center like the plague (assuming you aren't approved for accommodations). Even with meds, the sights and sounds—and sheer mass of people—will drive you mad; every pencil scribble is amplified, and you can't help but see every little movement in your peripheral. ... Then there's the tiny desks: you're forced to juggle the booklet pages and the scantron non-stop—my God, the horrors of referencing a reading passage while trying to assess the full brevity of that passage's 7th question, then bubbling in an answer, then moving on to that passage's 8th question—effing A, man, it's ridiculous...and the 2-paged Logic Games layout?!—that shiz is stupid! God help you if you need to erase something, or if you mis-bubble, or if your pencil lead snaps off—you're screwed, game over. ... Krost Hall + ADHD = PTSD.

One test taker got up without permission in the middle of the essay portion to use the bathroom; it was distracting. His test should have been disqualified.

There were people who had cell phones, practice LSAT books and pages, which were kept up front until the end of testing. But this was outlined PRIOR to testing!

Changed locations when we arrived. No clear directions to alternate site. The parking situation only made matters more tense. Once settled in, the experience was good except for the small work desk. Made logic games a little more challenging with limited area for work and answer sheet.

LSAC moved the testing location less than 48 hours from the test time. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL. No posted directions on the building made it a great experience to watch people wander about lost. Proctor did not speak very good English, but tried very hard (was not so much distracting as amusing). Lighting in the room was indirect, and therefor made it hard to see your own notes sometimes. Chairs sit very low to the ground with tables that have front plates making it uncomfortable for 6+ footers.
