Default LA testing Center

Before I took my CS exam I researched the centers which are "IMG" friendly. LA center was not one of them. I guess that is why their schedule didnt get filled up right away compared to the other centers like texas. But because of my tight schedule to apply for the match this 2015, I just grabbed whatever schedule that was available to be able to get my result prior to Sept 15. So I took it in LA. I was surprised that the staff there were not really that bad. I read a posts stating that the staff discriminate or laugh behind your back, but there was nothing like that at all. They were very nice, and accommodating. All the SPs have no accents, they even gave me leading statements to make me ask the questions that you forgot to ask. there were 2 rude SPs, but i think they were instructed to do so. So my conclusion is that all testing centers are alike. No IMG friendly, US grad friendly, etc. Take the exam as soon as you can and take it seriously. Practice, practice, practice. Even if you are a seasoned doctor from a foreign country.
