I took my last exam PDD on Friday (provisional pass) but no official record yet. Fingers crossed its made official soon so I can take the next much awaited steps. I like to share my experience and find out if there are any other candidates like me, in the same boat per se!!
Graduated in '98 but without a NAAB degree. That said, I established my NCARB records (lucky for me, had an awesome very old fashioned mentor who really took me under his wings for my apprenticeship) Long story short, finally started testing and through the journey, PPP division turned out to be my achilles heel! Finally managed to pass in 2016, but I had to repeat SP, CDS (clock had ran out on me) and then to transitioned to 5.0 in 2018! Took PPD in September and now as soon as it is official, I should finally be done with the AREs!
I am currently testing under CA board (which means I would need to take the CSE as well) but looking around and most likely will apply to another state and hopefully get my initial license (its a HUGE deal at my firm) So my whole promotion is hanging on this last few steps!!
Anyone else in the same position? Finished / licensed or in the process of?
