Check availability. I doubt you'll get Chicago or Houston in the next 3 months. I did mine in Houston and it was awesome.

My CS was in Atlanta and I have nothing to complain about there. Nice sample patients, nice proctors, located very near the airport.

In the day of the exam, the vast majority of people were american students, very few IMG.. I thought I would have problems with that, because my english is not great and the sample patients would "compare" me with the american students.. But I guess this doesnt happen! In the end I passed comfortably

Sincerely, I don't believe the test center makes a difference in your pass/fail results. I think if there was a huge difference between test centers (like, a fail rate much higher in one test center than the other), the people who coordinate the exam would notice.. Anyway, just want to say that Atlanta test center was a very nice choice and I don't regret choosing there!

Good luck!

I recently took CS in Chicago. One of my patient encounter notes didnt save on the computer and I was told I had to do a 13th patient interview and note. I have heard this happening to someone else and he received an incomplete despite doing the extra case. Any one have any thoughts or similar situations?

It was just by chance. I think someone cancelled his slot when I was looking for the date.
