Unhappy Where should I go for Live Lecture?

Dear Forum staffs and members,

I currently stay in San Francisco. I have already enrolled for Step 1 Live Lecture in Pasadena, L.A. Although I chose Pasadena, I have no idea about Pasadena except Pasadena is the closest city to San Francisco. I am also thinking about New York. I am very confused, right now. I am IMG and recently migrate to U.S. Can you please give me advice where I should go?

Default You don't need to go anywhere

Kaplan has different options other than CenterPrep. You can watch their lectures and even interact with the tutors online without going anywhere.

Sabio is right but if you still wanna go I would suggest Pasadena because it's closer and also much cheaper than NY. Also u get discounted accommodation through Kaplan in hotels. One of my friends took CS course and they got hotel booking thru them at a very good price in Hilton Pasadena.

Thank you so much for your advice. As you know, Live Lecture for step 1 is about 7 weeks. So, as for me, rather than staying in prestigious hotel, I want to find shared room near Kaplan Center. Although I tried to find shared room, I haven't found it in Pasadena. So bad. Anyway, thanks.

U can choose some extended stay place. They charge around 600-700 for one month. Like some motels.
