I honestly thought this day would never come. It still hasn't quite hit me. I've been dreaming about this day for so long that now I don't even have words or emotions left to express myself!
A quick recap of my very long timeline:
Dec 07 - Foreign Service Officers Test (FSOT) at US Embassy London. Passed.
June 08 - Foreign Service Oral Assessment (FSOA) in Chicago. Failed.
Nov 08 - FSOT #2 at US Embassy London. Passed.
April 09 - FSOA #2 in Washington DC. Passed!!
May 09 - Medical clearance granted
Oct 09 - Security clearance granted
Nov 09 - Final Suitability granted
Jan. 20, 2010: Received and accepted an invitation to A-100!
So what's next? I'm still working out the logistics, but it looks like I will be moving back home to DC in March.
The next chapter of our life is about to begin!
