    Florida condo collapse

    I am no structural engineer but is it possible a large sinkhole formed under the building, leading to such a collapse? I know Florida is prone to sinkholes and have seen who houses swallowed by them in Florida. As I know some talk about the oxidation of rebar due to the salty environment, but...

    October 2020 Post Exam Wait Period - Welcome to the Suck

    I am just wondering, in your case, was the "Fee Required" change in the elicense lookup hopefully a sign of good news in your case? That is, that you passed?

    April 2021 Post Exam Wait Period - Welcome to the Suck

    And while I may likely feel like I am being led to the gallows when checking my results (eventually) on the NCEES site. I will be doing so with this song playing in the background, to prepare myself! Gotta be psyched up when likely coming face to face, with that evil red devil... Hogan Theme Song

    April 2021 Post Exam Wait Period - Welcome to the Suck

    Whatever happens, happens in terms of test results, whenever they release them, be it this week or later on. Either I enter the PE promised land or go back into the wilderness--depending upon the results--for 5 more months only to once again appear at an NCEES testing site, possibly even in a...

    April 2021 Post Exam Wait Period - Welcome to the Suck

    Remember, although it is exactly 5 weeks since we took the exam, NCEES gives itself as much as 8-10 weeks to post results. So the Suck period can technically be as twice as long as it is right now!; think about that. Not that NCEES would stretch it out that long, but they could just to drive...

    April 2021 Post Exam Wait Period - Welcome to the Suck

    My bet is they will release on Friday, May 28th in the AM. Just to either make for an awesome Memorial Day weekend or one that is, may I say, not quite as good! Good luck to everyone as in any case, the April 2021 Suck period is in its last days I think.

    April 2021 Post Exam Wait Period - Welcome to the Suck

    Anyone too scared to open the [email protected] email, whenever it arrives and just days later start looking at the State License Lookup to see if it eventually shows one as a PE? That way if after a few weeks still not showing probably means you failed, but if you pass, praise the lord! That...

    April 2021 Post Exam Wait Period - Welcome to the Suck

    No Tmamwatery, I appreciate your response and it does not come off as rude at all. What you say makes sense and with more exams computer based now, I can see an argument for saying it may be earlier than the typical 5-6 weeks. We will find out soon, one way or the other I guess and who knows...

    April 2021 Post Exam Wait Period - Welcome to the Suck

    Is that even historically possible for NCEES to release results less than 4 weeks from the exam date; isn't that just too early historically? As even on their website, they say the following: "Typically, NCEES releases results to licensing boards 8–10 weeks after the exam date." And while I...

    And yes by guess is NCEES will wait until Friday, May 28th to release the results. You know, just before the Memorial Day weekend to either spoil one's weekend or make it a great one. I think this Friday, May 21st is still a bit early and by bet is the 28th.

    April 2021 Post Exam Wait Period - Welcome to the Suck

    While I also have not viewed 77 pages of WTTS, I think it is safe to say we all hope around 70% is the threshold for a passing score, roughly 56 +/-. However, say it is actually a bit higher, if the case, I do not think it is by much. It seems in my browsing of the Engineer Boards for a few...

    April 2021 Post Exam Wait Period - Welcome to the Suck

    Yes hopefully the 25% right percentage (for pure guessing) holds as I think my AM was decent as I only guessed on about 4 questions and they were not wild guesses. So the most optimistic way I have thought to look at it by feeling confident I could have got 30-32 correct in the AM. The Water...

    April 2021 Post Exam Wait Period - Welcome to the Suck

    Or if you somehow speak highly of NCEES or give a good review, they are more likely to be more lenient in their grading versus if you give them a piece of your mind; when they may think why pass this person. But I know that is not how it works; that submitting a positive survey can somehow make...
