I know just based on the questions I answered that it may seem like this is an ideal testing center, but I would never take an LSAT here again. This was a terrible testing location. A lot of people were getting turned down because they did not look like their photo and on top of that, since they were being so specific and anal, from the time I got into the testing room ( you can not leave once you have checked in) it took almost 2 hours until the test started. I practiced my tests in such a way where I knew when I had to use the bathroom but since the lag was so bad my whole system was thrown off. And then people came late (like right before the test) so she had to keep re-reading the test instructions. Imagine sitting in a seat which you are confined to for two hours just waiting for your LSAT to begin. and you cannot leave the room. Do not take your test here unless you want to show up three hours after the posted time

This was an excellent test center. The proctor was strict, but he made sure that the environment was optimal. Importantly, every test taker had more than enough desk room. We were seated more at tables than desks, to be precise. The lighting in the room was good, temperature good, and no distractions prevailed during administration. The proctor did almost shout 'five minutes remaining' at very high volume each time. Time was kept well, and no disturbances erupted during the test. All in all, I highly recommend this center. As a final note, parking is 2 dollars (not listed on down above)

Testing proctor failed to call 5 min rule in our 5th section at which point i began to demand she talk to the testing supervisor. She reluctantly attempted such, and merely both acknowledged a testing irregularity. During this period, neglect from the other proctor allowed and likely (I cannot confirm, only suspect) enforcement of the rules to conform to closing the books after the section. I am sure some individuals likely filled in answers either during this period, or the next section. The amount of gross incompetence was amazing. Seriously, if this is any indicator of the type of people they allow to proctor this exam, you will likely waste your time.

Proctor extremely nice and professional; nice setting; there was confusion about which room to go to and where to park; extremely tense testtakers; it sucked because I had to sit in the front corner but someone has to sit there and i was the lucky winner; recommend the site but go early. good luck:)
