Passed Mechanical: TFS! I think it was probably a close one--I went into it without studying (other than flipping through the MERM the night before to figure out the location of the conversion tables and rough order of topics).

Since we've got a state thread, now... anyone filed their registration yet? I submitted mine two days ago (paid the fee, then emailed in college/grad transcripts and the signed reference form), but haven't heard anything since other than the auto-respond email, which informed me the application would be processed in "4-6 weeks", which seems kind of lengthy given that the process is electronic. Surely it won't actually take that long?

Unfortunately I am under the old rules,  so I'm not sure... I started my application in 2015.. it just took me forever to sit for the exam and then finally pass it.

Wow! How did the old rules differ, just out of curiosity? The current revision looks easier, at least in the sense that they seem to require less onerous verification of work experience.

I'm also in the older system, first submitted my application way back in 2014.  Back then you needed to have like 5 references who could verify your experience and the majority of them had to be PEs that you had worked under.

Glad that's not necessary anymore; I definitely don't have that.

Got my number! I'm official! :-)

(Is the 10-digit ID number the "real" number, or just the last 5? In other words, what goes on the stamp?)

Well, with the ones when I started, I had to apply and get approved before sitting for the PE by getting my references, etc and verifying everything. For the current rules, you can take your exams well before having the 4 years of required experience, as long as its after your degree, and once you have all of your items, you turn it in online and they take 4 to 6 weeks to verify and process it all.

Oh, I see. So at this point, you aren't at any disadvantage since your references are already processed.

Does anyone know whether the license number that ought to go on (for example) a stamp is the full 10-digit number, for example "62010XXXXX" (where the "62010" is common to all PEs in Michigan and other professional licenses seem to have their own five-digit prefix), or just the last part, "XXXXX", for us recent registrations 68XXX in sequence?

It's the last 5 digits.  Verified with (2) coworkers stamps.

Very interesting! Two votes for 5 and one vote for 10... I like the idea of 5 better, personally, and it's extremely unlikely I'll ever stamp anything so....

I received my stamp Friday and ordered it with 10.

Does anyone know if we can expect anything in the mail from the State or is the license look-up/verification all that we can expect once our applications are finalized?

You should get your actual paper license in the mail.

Got it. It is... very unimpressive. Like a cosmetology license or something.

Haha it is the same exact license cosmetologist get.  Are you a member of MSPE?  They will have a new engineers dinner in October where they give out much nicer looking certificates.

It is certainly unimpressive compared to what APEGA (Alberta) hands out, but it was somehow more satisfying for me to receive in the mail than my APEGA license...

I'm not actually. Kind of pricey, isn't it? Where's the dinner happen? (I don't actually live in Michigan.) Possible to attend without being a member... or get the certificate without attending? :-)
