The final make-up assessments were (presumably) completed on Friday, February 25, 2011.
This is a new thread where you can discuss your experience with the in person assessment this year. What did you think? How do you think you did? How do you think your fellow semifinalists did? What percentage of no-shows did you see?
We should be able to discuss the details of the assessment in much more depth now that the assessments are all complete. I am interested in what you thought of the questions, the subject matter covered, the assessors, the assessment centers, all of it.
Soon I will follow up with two more posts. One will be an open thread for you to discuss the finalist results, which of course are still forthcoming. The other will be an in-depth examination of the process from the assessor’s point of view. Let me know if you want any other topics and I will try to accommodate.
Tarryn Reddy offered a great update on her experiences in this post:
my school’s career advisor just told me today that OPM had picked 750 finalists, although they have not released the names yet. So less than 50% of the semifinalists moved on.
