I have to say that I felt nervous at first but once the proctor said to start all of that nervousness left and I became focused. I took the test at the University of Richmond. The testing environment there is perfect, great temperature, comfortable chairs, ample space,lighting, and actual table to sit at. I think the environment helped create the calmness that I felt about the testing itself. I was surprised at how unprepared some people were. There were some who came in late complaining about parking, one guy had to ask the proctors for a pencil because he only had a mechanical and someone asked the proctors when we would get our scores. I was just shocked that you could take a test like that and not know those things. Those who were late complained about the lack of parking but since I obsessed over details I visited the site the day before since I wasn't familiar with the area and I got a pass from campus police to park anywhere. Basically my advice to any reading this is to be prepared it will help you stay calm. Now my next step is to beg for LOR's.
