Best LSAT Testing Locations in NY/NJ for 02/09/2013? HELP!

Postby kky215 » Mon Oct 22, 2012 12:23 am

Hi fellow LSATers.
I was just about to register for Feb 2013 LSAT before any good test center locations are filled up.
I live in NYC and I was hoping that I could find NYU or Columbia as possible options for the Feb LSAT, but apparently they are not..
Below are the only possible options for me to choose from (other locations were too far from my location).
I've never been to any of the locations below and I am starting to get really worried that a bad test center would ruin my big day :'(

Does any one of you know anything at all about below locations?
What were your experiences like?
Do you recommend a particular location?
Is there anyone near NY/NJ area who is planning to take Feb 2013 LSAT? -- if so, where will you choose?

CUNY - CITY COLLEGE OF NEW YORK NEW YORK, NY Available 6 02/09/2013, 8:30 AM
ELEANOR ROOSEVELT HIGH SCHOOL NEW YORK, NY Available 9 02/09/2013, 8:30 AM
MONTCLAIR STATE UNIVERSITY UPPER MONTCLAIR, NJ Available 10 02/09/2013, 8:30 AM
LAGUARDIA COMMUNITY COLLEGE LONG ISLAND CITY , NY Available 11 02/09/2013, 8:30 AM

SETON HALL UNIVERSITY SOUTH ORANGE, NJ Available 16 02/09/2013, 8:30 AM
(the numbers beside "available" are the miles)

Please help!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you :)

P.S Feb2013 LSAT is my first LSAT. I know that the scores are undisclosed. I am planning to take the LSAT the second time in June 2013 and apply for 2014 JD.

I hate to give this one away, LaGuardia community...if the commute is easy for you. I had a 4ftX3ft table to myself, with 7 other test takers in a room that could fit 40. Proctors were legit gave us a good break and used digital timers. They also gave clear five min warnings. Quiet as a library.

montclair is the best.

big lecture hall.. ridiculous amount of room to spread everything out. padded swivel office chairs. pindrop silence unless theres someone coughing etc... even if theres people making noise outside the room, you can't hear anything inside. I would go check it out for yourself.. its university hall room 1011

Wow thank you so much for your detailed and honest answer!
I will definitely check out Montclair! I hope that they let me take the test in the same room as you had -- university hall room 1011, hope they don't change the room location.
If you don't mind answering, when did you take the LSAT there? Do you recall how many people there were?

Thanks for your comment! Based on the comments on my post, I am debating between Montclair and LaGuardia (as you suggested). Since I live in NJ, I am more leaning towards Montclair, but I will definitely check LaGuardia out as well!
Thanks again for your help. Greatly appreciate it :)
