  1. I know I'm the only one that cares, but I'm happy to report that ......................................... I'm now a licensed Surveyor in 10% of this country. And props to the NY board for getting results out in less than 6 weeks.....
  2. 5 Weeks down......3 to 7 to go.......Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
  3. Ok....4 weeks in and 4 to 8 weeks to go..........
  4. It's going to be a long 10-12 weeks.....we're about 25% of the way there............
  5. I feel like I say/write this every couple of years.....but I hope I just took my last licensing exam. Once again, at the request of my company, I applied for and took the New York Surveying exam. It was supposed to be last April, but "the Corona" as my daughter puts it, messed things up. So, myself and 16 other surveyors piled into the Embassy Suites at the Newark Airport, which is not in New York State, to take this exam. I feel pretty good about the exam...I took the recommended review course, and I think it paid off, but we'll see. This exam is still pencil and paper, so I
  6. For Surveying...I've found the best bet is to get the NCEES practice exams for the National tests. Some of the topics can be explained by those older staff, but you're right, the courses are crap. For the State Specific tests, the best bet is to contact the state society. The reference material they tend to have is awesome. Add to it, that in some states, like Pennsylvania, their societies offer review courses.
  7. Good morning Lady PE, Sorry for the long delay, it's been a busy summer. 53 credits is way too many for someone that already has an Engineering degree, it's disappointing to hear that's what they're asking from you. In my day, I felt that NJIT bent over backward to help me get the degree and make my previous classes fill voids. It's also sad that they've done away with the satellite campus and remote learning. I'm surprised to hear about the lack of a state specific exam. That's kind of the most important test for Surveyors. The FS and PS cover the math and basic aspects, but t
  8. You need to have the degree requirements in order to be considered for an NJ PLS. The grace period to get a license without a degree ended better than 15 or 20 years ago. If you have a Civil degree, the NJIT program is perfect for you. It's exactly what I did. I think it was 12 classes I had to take and then with that degree was accepted to sit for the exam. By the time I finished my degree, I already had my PLS in PA and Ohio, so all I needed to take was the State Specific Exam and Law exam. The reason the checklist says not applicable is because there is no way you could have taken
  9. @Sapper PE LS....It's a little late, but congratulations. It was, without a doubt, the hardest test I took, so I can appreciate the accomplishment, along with the resiliency to keep trying. Sorry this took so long, life got pretty crazy in June and is only now starting to let up.
  10. Thanks Knightfox I did, having this board is a nice forum to vent and relieve some stress is better when someone else is part of the conversation.
  12. I was trying to hold message number 100 for the big announcement....but here it is 2;07 and still no results.
  13. Post number 99 at 12:09 and still not results.....It's really frustrating. Every time my phone dings I look over with anticipation....only to be crushed.
