Test Center Change?

Postby triplem25 » Thu Aug 05, 2010 4:00 pm

I'm taking my LSAT in February, but am a little worried about my test center after going here, --LinkRemoved--, a lsat site rater that kaplan has. I'm scheduled at Ohio State University. The only other test center for which I can go is Cedarville,which is about 45 minutes to an hour away, whereas OSU is about 10-15 minutes away. Cedarville, as opposed to OSU, had really good ratings as you can see from the link. OSU, being in Columbus, is bound to have many test takers, which to me means more problems. I wouldn't mind driving there a day earlier if I have to.

Has anyone ever taken the test at OSU, and if so, how was your experience?

Should I change test centers?

I appreciate any help :)

The OSU site is rough. Those tiny desks, you're stacked in with hundreds of test takers. I've heard Vet's is substantially more tolerable.

I went to Cedarville, though and they were pros. The room was well controlled on temperature, we had huge tables that we could stretch our shit out in, and there was a clock in the room I was in so I didn't have to play with the watch I brought. The staff was curteous, kind, and professional.

The only bad thing was that it was so far away and I didn't know any bars I could bee-line straight to post-exam

This site has more recent reviews than the Kaplan one:

I checked the wiki lsat site you provided, but neither cedarville nor osu is listed on there, only two other ohio testing locations, but I appreciate the link.

And corroborating the first comment with all of the reviews on the Kaplan site and my own experiences as an OSU student in the building where the LSAT is taken, I'm changing to Cedarville. No reason to risk it, especially with the already high number of complaints I hear of bad proctors and test center issues.

Thanks again for your help
