Hey! Well, there are lots of rumours about which center is good/bad for IMGs. There is no such things as good/bad for IMGs. It all depends on how good you prepare. I have friends who gave exam in philly ,who passed in first attempt and some who failed. I know friends who passed their exam in atlanta and LA too, now these are not highly qualified proficient english speakers, I am talking about average IMG students. So whether you take your exam in Philly or atlanta or anywhere, it doesnt matter. All CS is about 1) how well-mannered you are 2) how well you can act (like a real doctor) 3) and how well you know your subject.

My 2 cents, hope it helps!

Good luck!
