I've heard that EC is adding a new test site to the NPAC -- this one is located in Chambersburg, PA. That is so close to my home!! But I think I'm still going to go to Mansfield. Hmmm. A student was recently offered a cancellation date there, and they are just getting started at that location.
In any case, a new test site will help decrease the wait time ... not hugely, but every little bit helps.
