Test center location

Test center location
« on: March 14, 2010, 08:11:56 AM »
I went to register for the June LSAT yesterday (about 3 months away) and to my surprise, every test center near my house was unavailable; the closest one with availability is about an hour away.  I'm thinking about postponing it until October so I can take it at a closer center (about 20 minutes from my house).  I'm graduating in May and planning to take two years off before going to law school, so there isn't much urgency.  I just figure that I'll be more comfortable taking the test at a closer center; if I take it in June, I'll probably have to leave my house at 11:10 and won't get home until 4:30, I'll be hungry and probably won't have my sharpest focus?  Any advice on this?  Is it even much of an issue?

If you think you'd be more comfortable in October, and aren't even applying for 2 years anyway, go ahead and wait until you're comfortable. There's no sense in stressing yourself out to take it sooner if you're not trying to get your applications in.

That's what I was thinking.  It's not so much that I don't feel prepared to take the test, I just had it in my mind that I would be taking it in June at a more convenient test center.  I was surprised that all these test centers are already filled.  I guess I'll sign up for October today just to be safe.

I'll trade an hour of driving for not having to be at the test center at 8:00 in the morning.
