  1. I know how hard it is to get a red button when there are so many people here celebrating. There are many of us here who didn't pass the first or second time (myself included!) If you failed, take some time out, enjoy the holidays with your family, and come back to studying well-rested and ready to kick ass. This failure does NOT define you. You are NOT a bad engineer if you didn't pass. We're here for you! Sending big hugs to all.

  4. FINAL VERSION Since the question always comes up please consider including the times of release (in eastern) along with the state for future tracking purposes. Please only post the State and time of release in this thread. It makes things easier to track and to update the map. Thanks in advance!

  5. The worst: Individual approaches and ask about "that big test you took". Smiling expecting to hear you say...."I passed" You (with no emotion): "The results have not been released yet." Asking individual: "Oh Wow, That was a awhile ago I would have thought you would know by now." You (still trying to hold it together, because you know they don't understand the torture): "I know....they say 8-10 weeks"(mad at yourself for using that response)…..you contemplate going into the lengthy analysis of when you think it will be but decide they will think you are crazy. So you say no

  8. I'd like to thank @ChebyshevII PE for helping me again with the map this year! While I was off in meetings, doing RL work, or triaging, he was PM'ing me the states as they rolled in. This map wouldn't have happened as flawlessly as it did without him. Please join me in thanking him for his help.

  12. After failing both last October, passing Vertical in April, and taking Lateral this past October I didn't think I could take another Fail. (Especially since I'm getting married in May 2020) I worked all weekend for a deadline (that I am staying late for tonight) and was prepared to be devastated. I COULD CRY TEARS OF JOY RIGHT NOW. I AM DONE! OVER AND OUT! CONGRATS TO EVERYONE THAT PASSED, and if you didn't, be tenacious and you will!

  15. Anyone up for story time? Awesome, I am telling it anyway. Your wife is expecting your third child Nov. 10. You setup a plan with NCEES, they are going to allow a proctor to hold your phone in case your wife calls, but only if your wife calls, because she is going into labor and you need to GTFO. Oct 25 rolls around. You drive to the exam location an hour away. You see a co-worker and chat with her for a few minutes before getting settled in. A proctor comes over and takes your phone. The morning session starts soon. You work through it, all is going well. Morning session is completed

  17. Your welcome! I'm glad I could help makes things a little less worse for everyone. I'd also like to thank the other vets for their help and guidance both this session and in the past. I would encourage everyone to stick around and help the next group, or just stick around in general, we're a fun group.

  19. Final tally: The crew has all landed at Logan Airport in Boston and they are ready to make the drive up 95 for their Maine Vacation - it is Vacationland afterall. @JayKay PE, @txjennah PE, and @NikR_PE all arrived together on the same flight. For some reason @MEtoEE decided to drive up and picked up @RBHeadge PE along the way. The group is just waiting for @Roarbark to land as they have the other van reservation. After an hour of waiting, @Roarbark has finally arrived with their big soccer van. Unbeknowst to them, @Roarbark had a few too many drinks on their l

And thank you to everyone on here for helping me get through the wait period! I passed lateral building on the second attempt!! It is surreal and so many emotions going though me!! Still have to take the Vertical Building but I'm ready to face it.

  28. For the love of all things sacred...let’s not hound their chat. They’re going to say the same thing, until the results are actually released. We’re supposedly professionals. Making immature jokes behind closed doors (or in a forum) is perfectly acceptable, but continually hounding the testing agency that has no control over when state boards approve results is college level stuff.

  31. Well it had been so quiet in here during "off week", I couldn't stand it lol. On another note, I appreciate everyone's advice regarding my recent job offer. I was able to negotiate a bit more vacation time. However, the offer was so good to begin with, I didn't want to overstep my bounds, so with the extra vacation I took the offer. Today I gave my notice to my supervisor and company owner. It was harder than I imagined. These people have been so good to me. I was actually shaking a bit while telling them. They understood and told me if I ended up not liking the new place I'm a

  34. So I called and talked to the Engineering Board in SC. They said they are releasing the results today. They told me I passed and gave me my proper information, but GOD knows I have the worst luck in mankind so I'm not going to celebrate until I have stamp in hand.

  35. At some point soon many of you will find out that you passed the PPE exam. Congratulations! Passing the PPE is a major accomplishment that takes 8+ years of work and sacrifice. I'm certain you'll be excited; you should celebrate! But first I need to tell you: DO NOT IMMEDIATELY ADD PE AFTER YOUR NAME! Wait until you are actually licensed. I am not trolling! I am not trying to take away your accomplishments! I am not trying to kill your buzz! I want to keep you out of trouble. Just because you passed the PPE exam does not mean that you are a professional engineer*. Only

  36. “18 beautiful contestants. “18 wonderful dates. “18-" The announcer paused when they noticed the frantic waving of a stage hand and the frowning director, who kept making aggressive cut motions across their neck. Their eyes slowly traveled to the vacant spots that had been filled by large, potted ferns and not thoroughly eligible participants. “Did I say 18? I meant 16!” They ignored the director face-palming and soldiered on, “16 beautiful contestants here to fight for the hand of our eligible lover for this season of ‘Will you be my EB lover?

  39. The newspapers say that crime is spiking in the city, but many citizens don't think the threat is real until @vhab49_PE reports a package going missing. @MadamPirate thinks that @vhab49_PE is overreacting, tactfully explaining that maybe the stress of living in a gated community is getting to them. Also can't you just call Amazon and they'll resend the package if it was stolen? This approach seems realistic, and who knows if @vhab49_PE actually had a package being delivered this day? Did they show their confirmation number? @MadamPirate muses this as they stand on their own, package-f

  41. I just joined this community yesterday, but I know that there are a lot of people out there that are currently getting some really awful news. While I am by no means an expert in test taking, I feel like I am somewhat qualified to offer some advice. I've taken four different NCEES exams, failing three of them - (FS Fail, FS Pass, FE Pass, PS Fail, PS Pass, PE Fail, PE Pass). If NCEES ever goes public, I'll buy stock. So for those who failed: 1) Take a Deep Breath: You're currently feeling a lot of emotions right now, and they're likely all negative. You poured countless hou

  42. Welcome to phase 1 of the post-exam emotional roller-coaster. Phase 2 (second-guessing) will start to set in over the next few days. You will start to forget small (but important) pieces of the exam and forget how you answered the question, but will remember just enough so that you keep trying to re-calculate the answers in your head. You will slowly begin to convince yourself that you got it wrong. Phase 3 (worry) will follow within a few weeks. At this point, you've convinced yourself that you've missed a few problems, but you *should* still be ok. After worring for about a month (we're n
