As soon as I rail against all the injustices of the Universe, of course I find out that I passed the Foreign Service exam. Not only that, I aced the hell out of it! A passing score was 154, and I exceeded that by 16 points, putting me in the 97th percentile of all test takers!

Now on to writing my personal narratives and making something good happen in my life. After so much heartache, it is nice to have good news.

For posterity’s sake, or for the sake of other Foreign Service-wannabe types like me, here’s the breakdown:

  • Job Knowledge: 58.47
  • Biographic Information: 50.61
  • English Expression: 61.46

Total: 170.54

Essay score: 10
