I am staying a little over a mile away from the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. How early would you guys suggest leaving? I'm going to just use a Lyft/Uber. It says 10 mins away. I planned to leave 30 mins early.

I'm too nervous to risk transit. Idk if transit is anything like NJ/NY, but people get stuck on trains or there are delays all the time. I figured if somehow traffic is that bad, I could always leave the lyft and just walk the remainder of the way to the convention center.

Any tips appreciated! Thanks!

Somewhat off topic, but upon receiving a few requests, I published some tips/examples of mnemonics/analogies/acronyms etc. here: https://blockbusterblawg.com/2018/06/16 ... -examples/ and if you find them helpful or have any requests topic wise, I think I have a document somewhere with all the ones I used/created. If I can't find the doc, they're definitely in my hard copy binder. I also have some charts/diagrams on my "study aid" page and will be uploading more shortly. Good luck and kill it guys, get your 266!

Any idea when the actual swearing in ceremony is? I’m making travel plans for 4th of July and want to make sure it doesn’t interfere.

Mine as well... I had called last week and finally spoke with the director (I believe? ) and she said it was good I called (even though this was likely my 5th call since the results came out) as someone had not checked something off regarding my C&F, which would have held up the processing of my application. Let's hope that's not a common issue.

Oh no. But even after they checked off whatever they hadn’t it still says pending report?

I am staying a little over a mile away from the testing center. How early would you guys suggest leaving? I planned to take a Lyft instead of transit, in case transit breaks down.

It’s not far. Leave an hour early on the first so you can get there nice and early to calm your being late anxiety. On day two you’ll have a better idea of long it will take you to get there and what time to leave.

Yes, but that's because the 30 day public comment period was open through yesterday... so technically they could not finalize it until today. Although as of right now, its still pending.

They have a lot of reports to go through. I hope they didn’t forget to check something off on mine. When your status changes can you post about it on here and I’ll do the same just in case one of ours isn’t updated we can call ahead of time to prevent something holding up our swearing in process. Thanks.

I’ve only received one email from the committee with my score breakdown saying to wait for an email after June 18th. Am I missing something? What email said that the swearing in ceremony was on the 13th?

C&F still says pending report for me as well.

You’re right it wasn’t in an email. It says so on the results PDF. I knew I read July 13 somewhere and I was right. The pdf announcing the names of those who passed says that we can opt to attend the swearing in ceremony on July 13, 2018.
