Do you have any additional comments?
The desks were very small but manageable. Before the test started some people asked to be moved to a different seat because their desk was broken or had gum under it and the proctors were very accommodating. Many people were thrown off because upon arriving at the location on the test ticket we were told to go to another location based on last name. MIght have been an issue for those who didn't show up early enough to not have to rush across UCLA's campus.

This had to be the most poorly proctored standardized test I have ever taken. Aside from the poor seating situation (tiny lecture hall fold-out desks) and the huge number of people in my room, the proctors did not seem to know what they were doing. They constantly had to pause to re-read instructions for themselves, forgot what they were doing, and at one point forgot that they were proctoring an LSAT. We were asked to arrive at the test center by 8:30 and around 8:45 we were herded into the lecture hall. They had too many people to evenly space the test takers and instead of everyone getting two desks some people including me, had to share their second desk with a left-handed test taker. After being herded into the room we didn't start the test until around 10:30. We probably would have started at 10:15, but there was a near-mutiny when people realized they weren't allowed to go to the bathroom until the break (and only people at the front of the line heard that there would be no bathroom breaks until the break) plus I don't think anyone factored in TWO HOURS for the test to even start. Did not leave a good feeling for those of us taking the test. I didn't have too many issues (except for mis-bubbling during the LG section due to the constant switching from test booklet to answer booklet) and I was more than satisfied with my score, but what an awful experience. We weren't finished until after 2 PM. If you can take the test ANYWHERE else, I would.
