    I'm just curious if any of you know about the Philadelphia testing location, is it in the good part of philly or?

      It's in center city. Not too far from Chinatown.

        Just came back from the Lock Haven location, test was SOOOOOO much better than the crap NYSP pulled, I enjoyed the analytical section except for the map related questions, the quality of the scan was beyond horrible, could barely make out the street names. The center employees were two sweet old ladies, and the drive was extremely scenic. I'll give the trip a 7/10 only because I got hit by that crazy thunderstorm and missed my exit forcing to detour an extra 25 miles. How is the Oral exam?

            I think there were only 5(?). A few of them took me couple mins, but I skipped ahead and came back to them with 40 mins to spare. The CGI was terrible.

                      Interview is unlike most agencies. Two troopers dressed in suits at a neutral location. Mine was a marriot hotel. 7 questions and a 25 min limit. Scenario based and fairly straight forward. Questions are in a booklet, you read them, think and give an answer.

                          This was my first time taking the test, I gotta say that it was pretty straight forward other than those terrible CGI pictures. I'm not confident at all in those answers. Other than that I feel I did well. Now I just have to wait and see if those couple questions sunk me or not.

                            Did anyone get a handout that mentioned tentative Oral Test dates?

                                Everyone got the handout. I was surprised by how soon they plan to do the oral interviews though.
