DC Test Center?

Postby anela00 » Fri Jul 22, 2011 9:08 pm

Does anyone have any advice on which DC test center I should choose? I live in Cleveland Park and I'm going to register for the December test. My choices are:

University of DC School of Law
American University Washington School of Law
Georgetown University
Howard University
Catholic University of America
University of Maryland

Any thoughts on which one is ideal?

Thanks in advance!

----Updated----

I'm resurrecting this thread. I'm going to register for June just in case I need to, but it already looks like I'm too late to get a good DC test center. (Which would be American, based on previous comments.)

Does anyone have any comments about the following DC test centers? These are the only ones currently available for June.

University of DC School of Law
University of Maryland College Park
Northern Virginia CC--Annandale
Northern Virginia CC--Springfield
Bowie State University
College of Southern Maryland
Anne Arundel Community College

UDC would be an ideal location since I live in Cleveland Park, but it sounds like from the comments here (http://www.simugator.com/lsat-test-sites.php?state=DC) that the room is hot, which wouldn't be good in June at all.

Thank you in advance!

Do you have a car or do you Metro? If you have a car, or a good friend/family member that can drive you, I have read that the Towson test center is the best in the area. If you can't get there, American is the highest rated one in DC.

Here are the sites where I read reviews. I am so glad I did because I was going to take it at UMCP and in the reviews I read they have small desks and I need my space to spread out.

Good Luck!

I have a car but prefer to Metro, but I will drive if it means a better center.

THANK YOU!

American University is the best center from what I've heard. I took the test at UDC and it was ok... Desks were large enough, but the proctors weren't organized very well.. We started the test very late...

With UDC just know you start about an hour later than at Georgetown, but you get a lot of Desk space at UDC, Georgetown does not.

Desk space is definitely good! Do you know anything about the other test centers? Georgetown isn't available for June.

Not really. I took the Dec in UDC and they only had one classroom for the test. Test takers including me whose last name start from V to Z did not even have seats! So the proctor squished us in between other test takers and we had the exam shoulder to shoulder.
That being said, I was lucky that those beside me were slim and quiet. :)

UMD sucked facilities-wise (bad wobbly desks, dank little rooms).

NOCA CC-Annadale has awesome rooms and desks, and its really easy to drive and park.

I took it at UMD and would recommend it. Very organized and professional proctors, well-lit, not too many test-takers in any given classroom and a generally quiet environment. The desks were on the small side though, so if you are the kind of person who likes to spread out, that is something to be aware of.

Catholic was absolutely amazing. We all got our own tables, proctors used two digital timers- one set for 30 minutes so you know when you have 5 minutes left, and another set for 35 minutes for the end of the section. Huge windows which let in natural light, only 12-15 people per classroom. Can't go wrong.

Thanks so much for the comments, everyone. So it sounds like I should pick either UMD or NOCA CC-Annadale!

Wow, that sounds great. Too bad it's not available for June anymore. :(

I think I'm leaning toward this test center given the mixed reviews of UMD. Was there enough room to spread out on the desks? How many test takers were there in a room? Was the temperature in the room okay? Were the proctors (or anything else) distracting at all?

Many thanks!!
