Default Preparation and not centre is what matters

Hi.. I don't think choice of centre plays any role in passing the test.. I know 2 of my frenz (IMG) who took the the exam at LA centre last year and passed in their first attempt... Moreover if choice of center really played a role I think nobody wud hv opted for Philly .... And ECFMG wud hv looked into the matter.. So just forget abt the centre.. Focus only on ur prep cuz that will sail u thru.. All the best

plz don't pay too much attention to the rumours and not let yourself get distracted. My friend took it in LA and passed after 17 days of preparation whereas other one failed in Houston for no obvious reason. So it doesn't really matter.
