Yep.  And then I think about all the people who I'll have to tell I failed (including a couple of my damn clients who know I took it lol).

This is what I dread more than anything if I fail.

Just wait until get your license and have to stamp/sign some drawings!  Oh, and sign that check for Professional Liability insurance.  Waiting for the results is a piece of cake.

The good news (right now anyways) is you're in Texas - they will be one of the first states to release their results.

In seriousness, I highly recommend exercising to burn off the stress. That's what I did, and I kept at it ever since. It was one of my better decisions.

This is determined by state statues for the most part. In FL if you work for an engineering firm then you are covered by the company policy for company work.

If you decide to stamp things on your own you will need to research all the options. No need to research until after you pass. I found out my results but did not get my PE number for several weeks. Then my certificate came even later.

I am keeping silent until I got the results :-(

The waiting only gets worse as the assumed date approaches.  I took mine in Oct 2014 and they released the results ~10 days later than normal, so I have 10 days of almost no productivity. Good luck.

I thought the PE waiting was bad, but I just found out my wife is 13 weeks pregnant.  Should find out the gender when the PE results come out.  I think the anticipation of the gender is trumping the nervousness of whether I passed or failed.  Both are pretty intense though

Congrats on being pregnant. Hopefully you passed so you can focus on the baby!!

Congrats! I have a 16 month old. Made studying for my exam very difficult because I wanted to spend time with her! She just wanted to sit on my lap and color every time I sat down to study! I am praying I passed so I don't have to worry about this exam again and taking the time away from my family to study.

So are you drinking now to handle the wait or will you drink once the results are in?  I'm waiting for the results to have a large Jack Daniels and ginger ale.

I didn't drink for about a month leading up to the exam. I drank quite a few beers afterwards and that rest of the weekend 

:40oz::drunk1::beerbang::beerchug:

I didn't see a point in waiting

:dunno:

Congrats. Focus on the pregnancy and future child care, it'll make the wait go faster. Both the test and the sex of the baby are out of your hands now.

I'd focus on the 27 weeks left to party.
