I'm fine during the day when I'm busy. But at night, I get so much anxiety. I've been here trying to calculate how I can get 675 with different scores on each section lol.

I'm a repeat taker. I want to pass so bad.


Pretty much in the same boat. I'm fine during the day, but just as I'm getting ready to sleep the anxiety hits me. I go from seeing my name on the list to thinking what if I failed? I completely fucked the MPT so I've been trying to calculate what else I need in the other sections to make up for it.


Same here. I'm hoping since we saw such a large increase in passing rates for July 2016 that it's going to carry over for Feb.

Based on past releases, does anyone know when they will notify us if they're releasing on Friday? I have been planning for Friday but now that it's getting closer I'm worried they will wait (I know it's unlikely, I just like confirmation that it will be early.)

I don't think they'll ever stray from their official date. They just post them a day early, historically speaking. Somewhere a while back I was reading the page should go live at some point prior to their release, but I can't seem to find out how early the page goes live..

They don't confirm anything except the anticipated release date. Just follow Justice Willett on Twitter, you can still check his page even if you don't have Twitter. They are typically released a day early, but he gives heads up minutes before they are released, that's your best bet.

Last time, there were strong rumors the release was going to be on Thursday but Justice Willett dispelled it. I believe it'll be this Friday.

They won't notify us for an early release. It will just happen. Willett is the timer! I just follow his tweets.

Thank you! (And everyone else who responded). I was just hoping for an official notification that it will be early. I suppose I'll just continue my sleepless nights for this week and hope it ends on Friday. Good luck everyone!

I agree. We don't really have a time for when they are released so you spend minute after minute looking for anything. . . . try to relax. I know it's hard, but everybody's fate is out of their hands at this point.

FYI: Here's the link that should populate at the appropriate time on Friday or whenever they post:

Right now it's still a 404 error.

For some reason I was under the impression it populates in advance, just with one name under each letter from someone who had passed a previous administration?

Anyone with thoughts on what time of day they typically post? I took & failed last February & it's frankly all a blur. I just remember trying to stay busy & how awful it felt.

I got a flurry of requests from my licensure analyst wrapping up by character and fitness portion within the past two days. Just simple confirmation stuff. I was wondering if any of ya'll had any experience with that or if you have heard that it's a good sign.

I haven't but I'd have to think that would be a good sign? Why waste time with that if you didn't pass?

Also, results usually come out around noon-ish.

I got an email a couple weeks ago about them needing my boss to fill out the C and F portion. I guess he overlooked the email. I had him fill it out and the C and F person thanked me for jumping on it really fast and that they could now "certify the C and F portion of the application process." I was also wondering if that was a sign.

Yea, that's the same thing for me, they just need employment confirmation. I am licensed in Colorado and I spoke to the administrator at the PD's office where I worked and she said that it happens all the time and it's usually a sign that someone passed.

Now I'm worried that because I haven't heard from them, I likely failed..

Who knows though. My employer didn't get back to them initially, so if you haven't heard anything I wouldn't look too much into it. But I feel like if there is stuff to clear up it may be a good sign. Only 48 more hours to go and we will all know hopefully!
