    Ya they did. I got 8:32 I think. If you've never taken it it's really easy. The worst part is the stair climb, prepare for that and you'll be fine.

    I was referring to the written exam's results not the CPAT. I'm saying, I would have had a difficult time paying for a CPAT through them if my written test results were not (by my standards) good. But I guess, you weigh out the pros and cons of traveling back. I've taken a few CPATs now, I've even taken one through PST at the location you did yours for Bates.

    Everyone feeling good? How did your CPATs go?

    These from word of mouth (what I heard with my ears):
    One of the proctors mentioned South King wasn't planning on doing any hiring for entry levels any time soon.
    Another person who was taking the CPAT stated to one of the proctors that they believe Olympia is hiring 2-4.

    Anyone else heard anything about the departments?

    I took it, haven't seen a score yet though. I may call a little later on if I don't get an email.

    I received my scores from Bates last week so you should be receiving them soon I would imagine.

    I've got my score, same as I did last time.

    What were the different times you guys took your test and how many were there? Just trying to get an idea of how many applicants there are.

    How did you do? I got a 91.11 and since I passed I assume that means I'm moving forward in the process. All I know now is they are sending the scores to Tumwater.

    I went at 1500 on May 31. The whole cafeteria was filled one per table so i'm guessing like 50-75 people or something.

    Did you get your invitation letter, looks like it was only sent out to 26 people total.

    Nope. Was it in post or E-mail?

    On the announcement it says "The
    top scoring candidates passing the written examination (80% or above) will be invited
    to participate in an oral board examination."

    It doesn't say a certain number, it just says over 80%.


    It also says on the Bates website "All applicants that score 80 percent or higher will move forward in the application process."

    So I'll wait a little while longer.

    I've heard of no updates. The only bit I have heard is Olympia might be hiring and may start their process sometime from now until the fall.
