    I did an out of state proctored this morning. Did they disclose a number on how many essays were being done in the auditorium and a number for out of area?

    I also did an out of area proctor and have to say I think it helped that way. I was calm and felt that the math was simple enough and the scenerios weren't that bad either. I only wish they gave us more pages to write on. I felt like I had so much more to say. I also have the question on how many people were there and if they said how many out of area proctors were being taken.

    Lol, it was intimidating! When we test for rank, you're in a room of 30-35, that was very intense!

    Does anyone know if they automatically let anyone in without doing proctored essay?

    The info session said sometimes 5-20, but she stated they had 96 slots available, so maybe no one did this time?

    All I can say is YIKES. I guess the good news is it is now out of our hands. The bad news is we have to wait for six to eight weeks!
    I was getting pretty annoyed with someone in front of me in line to submit our work - she used the time standing in line to add to her work! What the heck! I looked right at her and said, "That is not very honest!" I hope people like that get disqualified. Is that rude?
    So 250 on site proctored essays, 30 off site, and 96 spots......did she say they had 462 applicants this year?
    YEESH. I guess I'll sleep very well tonight, now that the fear is gone!
    Hope you all get accepted! That was intense!

    Yeah, I think I heard on this forum that they hardly ever admit anyone automatically anymore.

    That's crap! I would of called her out! That's one less person to compete with, ever hear of integrity?!

    Wow, I was wondering myself if anyone had done that. Would have been nice to have more time to work on it, but as it was, I had finished up (and was a line or two away from the end of the page) about 5 seconds before she said pens down. I'm disappointed they didn't monitor the lone better. Would have been very easy for someone to whip out their cell phone and use the calculator function to do the math problems (though if they couldn't do it w/o a calculator, they are in trouble anyway...)
