One of the most respected rabbis in Baltimore tells that he received smicha from Ner Yisroel's rosh yeshiva, Rav Yaakov Weinberg z"l. The Rosh Yeshiva generally didn't give smicha, the test was usually given by Rav Kulefsky z"l. But this rabbi had never bothered to take the exam, even though he taught one of the regular study groups on the subject at Ner! ...

There is no real semicha nowadays anyways. 'Smicha' was a chain of teachers ordaining students tracing itself all the way back to Moshe Rabbeinu. This chain was purposefully lost due to corruption. Thus, there are no real Halochas of smicha. Today, a rabbi can give a talmid smicha as he sees fit.
