Doesn't matter really. If you take in the morning you will be free by 3.15. If you take in the evening you will be free by 11. All proctors and patients will be different in each session.

I hate waking up early morning so I'd prefer evenings

I think CK is only given in mornings. I haven't heard of anywhere where CK is taken in the evening. And like I said, it's your personal preference dude. If you like to get up early then you should go for the morning exam. Rest assured, the timing won't change the outcome of your exam.

Oh that's good man. It is only available in the morning session in ours. Sucks really. I would really prefer the 12pm exam time.

Evening is good for CS. The chicago center is well connected with the city by metro so I don't think you will face any problem!

Good Luck!
