    If you have a car, I would definitely recommend Montgomery College in MD (just up 270 about 15-20 min.). You will have a HUGE table all to yourself, and the staff is VERY organized.

    I know that you can also take the exam in Georgetown, but everyone in the area recommends Montgomery College.

    I took the MCAT at Howard. The environment was chill I guess. I mean it is the MCAT after all which is in and of it self stressful.

    I took the test at George Mason Univ in Fairfax, VA. It was a nightmare. The desks were normal classroom sized (too small). Plus, someone scheduled some picnic/pep rally outside our window. The only way to get rid of the noise was to close the windows, which caused the temp to rise well into the 80's. Since it was still April, they hadn't turned on the AC yet, but it was still a pretty warm weekend. One of the proctors went out and asked the people if they could keep the noise down for another hour (the event was still in the set-up phase, but the frat/sorority members were still being loud). They basically told the proctor to stick it up her @$$, and they went on with the noise. Luckily, the DJ heard the proctor pleading with the people as he was setting up, and he sympathized with our cause and said he would wait until we were done before he stared the music.

    I shouldn't complain, as I did pretty well on the test. But out of a room of about 35 people, we had 5-7 people void their tests. I don't know if the noise had anything to do with it, but I can say it stressed me out pretty good. I thought about calling GMU, but the darn test took so much out of me that I wanted to put it behind me and move on. But if I had to retake, I definitely would NOT do it at George Mason.
