PPI and ASCE emails fortell anything?

Like many of you, I got PPI email almost every week after the exam. I even got one the day before the results were released. I have not gotten any after the results were released though. 

So, all of these email messages don't mean anything (pas or fail). I wonder how they get our contact email. I know a local group in my state got email address of all Civil PE exam candidates. They were offering refresher courses in the weekends. I guess the state board or the NCEES releases contact information of exam candidates or it may be a public record???

They mean absolutely nothing but frequently are used to gauge how stressed someone is about the results. I think if you contact PPI about anything you get put in the spam mail system.

I think it's a public record thing for your state. If you go to your state's licensing page, you'll probably see where you can "verify a license" and most have where you can download a file with all of the data. NCEES itself isn't a government agency, so I don't think they have to comply with FOIA requests or anything like that.

I got one from PPI the day after I got my result - I passed. Just adding to the observations that the email doesn't mean anything. Well.........it means that PPI knows that some of us who attempted will fail and that's a good time to advertise. So they send out emails around the time the results are released. Don't read any more into it.

That and since the OCT results come out just before Christmas, they figure they can get a few takers because of the holiday gift giving etc.
