OCTOBER test takers in MIAMI?

Postby JJDancer » Wed Sep 22, 2010 1:01 am

Just wondering if anyone would want to take some PTs this/next week at a testing center (FIU/UM/St Thomas) or get together in a group to run through "real" testing conditions?

I did this last year but I was in college and in DC so finding people/a place wasn't hard.

Im in Miami, but unfortunately cant make it out anywhere. Ive gotten into a rhythm of taking PT's at home.

If you want to take tests in a quiet setting with a lot of people go to the 6th floor of FIU's library. Its nice because its quiet and there tend to be people around. Lots of page flipping and coughs, but still quiet. Very similar to LSAT conditions.

Any of you know the testing conditions at Florida Memorial University? All the other places were booked by the time I signed up and I have no idea what to expect here

I called the testing center and a woman told me they use auditorium style desks...like the small ones that flip up. This can't be right...right? How can we squeeze pencils, watch, or even just the answer sheet/book on a little flip top?

OP here: I decided to just take PTs at UM Law Library and its quiet but has people.
I guess I'm more disciplined than I thought because I stuck to the time limits etc and it worked out fine so I'll just keep doing that.

That sucks. It very well could be the case though.

Anyone know about St. Thomas testing conditions?

UM: divide into different large classrooms (the high techish ones with stadium like tiered seating. The desk is one long slab. You sit spaced by 1.

BCC: divide into small classrooms with shorter slabs of desktop. 2 people per desk.

More competent proctors at UM.
