PA Results...

Recommended Posts

For anyone in western PA, Edgar Snyder would probably love to take on a class action suit. You know, in case shit goes down.

It's interesting to go back to the Oct 2011 PA results and read through the threads. They all seem eerily similar to what we are experiencing.

The word from PCS that is being spread around my office is that the state is having website issues and the license numbers cannot be mailed out until they can be uploaded to the board's verification page. This seems to make sense. My best guesses for the reason why we don't have our numbers yet:



1.) The .CSV file the PCS intern emailed over to the board was missing all of the commas


2.) The state has a spam program that blocks emails with commas



I guess the longer delay in sorting all of this out this year could also be a combination of both of the above reasons.

I had a pleasant email exchange with Karen Kepley this morning. Here's the scoop:


  • PCS and the State Board's computer systems are not connecting
  • She said, "the best way I can think to explain it is as a handshake between our system and the board's system....somewhere, the handshake did not happen and that is what PCS and the PA Board are working on to get corrected."
  • In her 9 years at PCS this has never happened
  • She is hopeful this will be resolved "in the next coming week (at the latest)"

As much as I want to vilify PCS and the state board, at least Karen was being honest and not feeding me the standard B.S. answers.

LOL! Right. Ask some of the other PCS veterans on this board. The old "computer glitch" excuse. I've heard it before and so have others. Sucks for you guys. Actually, we even created an emoticon to "commemorate" PCS. LOL

:pcs:

I don't buy the computer glitch excuse. I could have knitted each candidate a king sized quilt with their results embroidered on it by now. There have been engineers since long before computers. The fact that they can't get their PowerPoint presentation to use the correct star wipe should not keep them from mailing our results.

Bottom line is that they all have nice fat government contracts, and every day they waste is one less we have to move forward with our careers, raise our pay and get more benefits.

That figures..All PE licenses need renewed every odd year...so ours expire 9/30/15 and will need renewed then.



Oh well...we jumped through enough hoops, what's a few more :-)

PCS shows fail. PA Lic Verif shows EIT and null and an active PE #. Called PCS, they wouldn't say anything except their scores were unofficial. Called the PA Engr Board, they said a license was issued this morning, I'd get it in the mail and that meant I passed.



Not really sure what to believe right now.

Whoa there cowboy. I had the same thing happen, called the state, and they said that some licenses were issued in error. I'm not celebrating, yet. If mine was issued in error, I'm moving out of the state. This is ridiculous.
