  1. Does he need the wall cert to be posted at the business location? Alternately, is he looking for a the formal showy wall certificate, or the drab legal license that needs to be posted on site?
  2. I believe it varies state-to-state, but the deadline is approaching soon. It looks like Maryland needs it by June 29 for the Oct 2017 exam.
  3. Congratulations!
  4. I thought about that too as I was typing out the response. I agree with the logical semantic structure of the sentence still support the larger thesis. But I was pointing discipline does matter. We're acutely aware that we're on the left end of the bell curve. ...Of course the discipline might not be around in an appreciable form in 30 years too.
  5. Most nuclear engineers would disagree with this statement. I believe petroleum engineers are in a similar pay situation. But it makes sense for the rest of the engineering disciplines when averaged out across the country.
  6. Absolutely
  7. Someone from Rhode Island checked in. They're still waiting. But yeah, the other two are probably lack of representation.
  8. That's pretty common. People still do that years after the fact. Sometimes it's done not under the pretense of starting a fake results thread.
  9. Is Rhode Island a PCS state?
  10. Where are you getting exactly 70%? A quick scan of previous session results for first time WRE shows: Oct16: 71% Apr16: 68% Oct15: ? Apr15: 71% Oct14: 72% Most exams* hover around the 60-80% first-time pass range. At first glance WRE has a tighter bound like the most other CE exams, but that by itself doesn't mean anything. *With the exceptions being the lesser taken tests like Nuclear, Petroleum, and Software
  11. Oh, I'd look if it were available. But it would have no more effect on me today than knowing the score of any other pass/fail test I've taken the last 20 years.
  12. It looks like the emails went out this morning. In previous years maps, an asterisk was sometimes applied to indicate that only some results were released on a given day. The map is probably okay for now.
  13. I looked into this many years when determining when I could initially take the exam. I know that Delaware, and Maryland doesn't allow you to double dip. Pennsylvania sorta lets you double dip, but it'll be tough to get it past the board. And Pennsylvania has some strict requirements on using a graduate degree towards experience requirements (must be in same discipline as undergrad). I came to the conclusion that even if I did qualify to take the exam in one state, that my licence may not transfer to another state later on. If you plan on only ever working in one state this may not be a problem for you. But to be safe I made sure that I had four full years of professional experience ignoring any credits for graduate degrees, before applying to take the exam. When you were in grad school from Aug - Mar, were you working "full time" as an RA under the supervision of a professor with a PE? In that circumstance, then those 7-8 months would count as professional experience. Assuming you weren't, you would have enough experience by March 2018. And you would be eligible to take the April 2018 exam but only in a state that allows you to apply for when you to take an exam where you would have four years experience by exam day. Many states require you to have enough experience when you submit the application. So Maryland would not let you take the exam, but Illinois would, because the applications are due before March. tl;dr best case: October 2017 exam, worst case October 2018
  14. Congratulations!
