2006 FSWE Score Breakdown

In comparison to my results the first time around, I fared much better--an improvement of over twenty points.

JK: 56.86
BIO: 60.67
EE: 56.95
Total Score: 174.48

Essay: 8.0

The cutoff score was rather anticlimactic, however. The minimum cutoff this year for CON was 153; last year I scored 153.82. :/

If you are curious how these scores should be interpreted, please reference my 2005 FSWE results post (it's explained toward the end of the post), or the primary source material (here and here) on the Yahoo! FSWE Board.

FSWE, Round Two

After a quiet and relaxing three months, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that I had passed this year's FSWE. I've requested my Score Breakdown, and will be interested to see in which areas I was able to improve over last year's.

The interesting thing is that I didn't feel 'ecstatic' to have passed; I simply felt satisfied and relieved. It's really boosted my confidence in the first step of the process, anyway, which will lessen the stress and anxiety when next year's cycle begins.

It's encouraging to see that I'm making slow, but steady progress through this process.

Best of luck to everyone else that passed--and for those of you that didn't quite make it this year, don't get discouraged. Try, try again!
