  1. What are your Non-Passing Scores? Too soon?

    Ah, but that isn't what I typed. I was referring to the admissions push. Good for you if you didn't realize it was going on, but as a female engineer in a highly selective college that was trying to boost the female engineer numbers, I ran it to that quite a bit. Actually, I worked in the admissions office for a while and saw it first hand. I'm not trying to put female engineers down (being one, I actually think we're awesome...), but I do think there's a point here. If you try too hard to get people in the door (by making it easier), it undermines that group's credibility.
  2. Water resource pass/fail

    Same to all of that. EET was amazing for the afternoon, and I doubt I could have put together the same reference book without them. I was thinking that if I failed, it was because I would have missed all of the structural-related problems in the morning (and who knows - maybe I still did).

    CO is out.
  4. Colorado

    Thanks!! Now that the wait is over, it's slurpee time!!
  5. Colorado

    Sorry. Don't be demoralized - at the end of the day, it's just a test on information we mostly don't encounter in our jobs. You'll get it next time!!
  6. Colorado

    Colorado is out!! PHEW!
  7. Colorado

    Thanks - same to you @Tigger! I keep thinking there's someone at the board who has the power to release the results, and is just either doing other things or purposely making us wait because they can.
  8. Colorado

    Yep, this exactly (except with a water resources twist).
  9. Colorado

    I guess I spoke too soon! Congrats again!
  10. CA IS OUT

    Way to go Leggo!!!! That's awesome!!
  11. Colorado

    So true! I'm not sure how you Californians survive this!!
  12. Colorado

    Never mind - it's back up. Still no results.

    The DORA website seems to have crashed. Anyone else having the same issues?
  14. What are your Non-Passing Scores? Too soon?

    I meant back when there was an initiative to get more female engineers into college. Not on tests or anything.
  15. What are your Non-Passing Scores? Too soon?

    It seems like you would get the same thing some female engineers get in college - did you pass because you made the cut score, or did you need the help from the extra points? Not good from either side.
