Nope - definitely not - a very unique name! He's a reviewer in our County and some of our engineers here have talked about it. He MUST have pulled some strings. Which ones, I have no idea. The other guess people made here was that his score was so high that they didn't bother to make him wait. I somehow doubt that too....

I think if he pulled some strings, he's got to be pretty silly to let the cat out of the bag (no pun intended)!

He could probably get investigated over something like that.

How thoughtless?? :dunno:

:rolleyes: Ya know, I am half tempted to call DCOR tomorrow when I am off and ask why he has his results and I don't have mine! Just to be a pain in the tush! Pretty much as soon as he got the license number, he quit his job as a reviewer and is moving on somewhere else - but that won't be for a couple of weeks yet. Last thing I need is for him to think I got him in trouble and mess with my construction plans...

Does your state statutes or board rules require that a board meeting be held approve new licenses or cut scores?

Well Virginia is sticking to the, "We expect to receive results by the end of June or 1st of July, and then we will mail them out shortly after that" statement. It is a canned answer since everyone I talk to or e-mail responds with the same exact answer. Do they think that we haven't noticed that other states are getting their results? At this pace I better pass because I will need the PE to get another job after being fired for lack of productivity. Does anyone have an "in" with the board that can get some info? :drunk:

Yes, am getting the same things - But I got to believe they are getting tired of us calling all the time - I am sure they have the results, but some administrative problems are occuring - Lets keep calling to get current updates as to the status of the results.

I am getting tired of waiting - this is rediculous - The waiting is worse than the actual 8 hour exam.

This morning I went for a four mile run to try to return my mind to a more calm state. It worked for the time being but I am sure as the day goes by my blood pressure will be out the roof. I love it when my wife says, "The results are not going to get here any faster if you keep checking, just put it out of your mind and you will be suprised when they finally do show up." Hmm, let me ponder that one for a minute!!!!!!!!!!

I know it s**ks, but they did tell us 10-12 weeks. So nobody should be too upset. Anyway, if you have lived in VA for any length of time, it should be no surprise - has anyone been to a DMV lately???? If the state of VA runs it, it's going to be FUBAR.

Well finally got another response from someone at DPOR than the usual. This time it was, "No we haven't received anything and don't expect to until sometime in July" followed by, "At that time it will take about a week to get the results out." What scares me is that this was not one of the usual secretaries because I used a different phone line.

The funny thing is that I am actually getting exhausted of continously checking. It will probably be sometime next week at the earliest and there isn't much else we can do about that.

The worst part for me about waiting is not knowing if I need to start studying for October.

I still think they have them and are just being slow... Which is surprising because they have always been fairly prompt when compared to other states. Ugh...

I agree that the waiting sucks - what bugs me is the questions from co-workers. Hello? If I pass, do you seriously think I won't be screaming it from the rooftops! Why would I just keep it a secret and not let anyone know? Ugh...

Oh well - at least no studying for the October exam for me if I don't pass. I'm due with our second at the end of August and there is no way that I am going to sit for that exam with a 9 week old at home :P Taking the exam at 5 months prego was enough of an adventure for me for one year...

Everytime I think about having to study I feel sick. I want to be done with this. Actually I think not having to study anymore is more important to me than the PE itself. :true:

Hey my wife gave birth to ours last September and from our experience that first nine weeks is rough. Too bad that it didn't fall in the 3 to 5 month time for you. That was when ours was the calmest and it allowed me to get a lot of studying done. Now she is 8 months old, mobile, and running none stop from sunrise to sunset. I couldn't study now if my life depended on it. I was going to start working on my second Masters but I have decided to hold off for a while till things calm down (or I just get more used to it).

By the way has anyone harassed DPOR or EES today? I called once this morning. Someone call and see what the answer is this afternoon.

Here is a funny story. On my way home yesterday I was driving past my mailbox as usual without much concern because my wife checks it and had already told me that nothing came. However, I was passing it and noticed a white envelope laying on the ground. Now, I had no expectation of receiving results since from all the discussions this week I am sure that it will be at least next week before my results come. When I stopped and opened my door to pick up the envelope I noticed a plain white envelope addressed to me with a return address from Richmond, VA (the capital where the board resides). My heart jumped and I immediately began to tear the letter open. To my great suprise, the Capital One credit card company also is from Richmond. So now I am going to have find someone who works for Capital One and severly injure them. :suicide:

Broke down and called EES today. I finally got through to someone reasonable there that was willing to be straight with me. She said that EES had received all grades from NCEES and had mailed out all results to their client states. Now the ball is in the court of DPOR. DPOR, however, are still singing the same on song and dance. I talked to them also and the response was exactly, "Sir, I believe they told you at the exam that the results would take 12 weeks. That is the middle of July and that is when you should expect them." Once again I hung up with the desire to slap someone. Do they really think we have not noticed that everyone else is getting results? I suppose they are just doing their job but damn I would like to see them before this weekend. Either way beer is in order!!!!!!!! <_<
