They changed the test location last minute and so we had to relocate and find new parking space/walk there. I checked the website on the morning of the exam and the change in location was not stated on there. Hence it was really nerve wreaking to get there and then find out they changed the location because then you have to figure out the new location without the help of internet.

The proctor was also really slow at letting us inside. For me, because I'm not American, the proctor (Hispanic)'s attitude was really mean. When I showed her my passport which the LSAC centre said qualifies as proper ID, she looked very suspicious and told me I couldn't take the test because my passport was not proper ID. I then had to explain to her why it was, which was really frustrating and time consuming. She also walked around way too much, and consistently stopped right next to me which was really distracting. I don't think I'm being self-conscious because several times when I raised my head when she was standing next to me, I found her starring at me in a very disturbing manner. I suppose this kind of thing can only happen in the South.

We were in lecture halls on 5th floor, divided by alpha-split, with long desks extending from one aisle to the other. Chairs were the swively kind attached to the table. Proctors were both great kept time using a digital timer whose alarm went off at 35 minutes, leaving no doubt that we were getting all the time we were supposed to. Less than a minute between sections enough time to flip the page, quickly sharpen pencil or get your bearings in order before starting next time. Parking seemed reasonably easy to find. Highly recommend.
