      Ahhh ok. I suppose I'll keep a lookout for an email soon. Is it the secret service email?

        The email invite came from my Field Office.

          Oh I'm guessing that's a different email. Hopefully my filter doesn't filter it out. Should I just search SAEE testing?

According to the follow up email, I was referred to the local office but haven't heard anything else. Waiting to see if I get a notification to test. When did you get a notice about testing?
            I got the email today at 11 from my local field office to test. Not much notice since the test is next week, lol. Anybody who hasn't gotten it yet is probably because it's up to your closest field office to administer the test.

                • Class 4/3 starts in New Mexico for SS. Everyone should be getting calls this week. Don't be surprised if you get a call on the weekend.

                    • Applied to the January announcement and after several 'error' emails, found I was not qualified. I realized the transcript I uploaded was incorrect and did not qualify me for the basic GS. I have gotten an official transcript from my university to scan and upload; is anyone aware of the time limit I must follow before reapplying? I understand it is either 6 months or a year for a DQ but does that also apply to a NQ?

                        My assumption would be there is no time limit since your application did not make it past the review stage.

                          I agree with Lone Ranger. A new announcement's up for SA, use your right transcript and give it a shot. What've you got to lose?

                          Also, last week I got the e-mail stating that my profile would be forwarded to the FO for processing. No word yet on SAFE or SAEE. Anyone have any idea of long it may take for me to hear back?

                          • Just got my email for the SAEE test date. From the practice test the only difficult section was the Photo observation section but maybe its easier with the verbal description that should come with it?

                            I replied to the email to accept the invitation, would they send a confirmation of this?

                              As said above I'm still waiting for my invite to SAEE so can't comment on a confirmation, but for photo observation in the SAEE, its not easy but best advice is to just focus. I took a similar test for state law enforcement before and it was the only section that, to my knowledge, I missed any questions on (I got a score of 96%). I messed up because I felt the test was easy so when the photo observation component came up I didn't pay attention to the directions so I missed things that I should've focused on. I got cocky. So pay attention to the directions, the verbal descriptions and take it as much data from the photo as you can since at least in my test the pictures were only on screen for like ten seconds. Good luck dude, hope that helps a little.

                                I totally agree with you on the observation, I self tested myself a little bit for the photos but without giving myself the full two and a half minutes to look. Then I didnt do the unrelated questions which I think make it harder. I can remember a lot but sometimes it catches me off guard what they ask. Like how many flyers on the bulletin board. I'm going to spend the next week studying as soon as I finish my last Final exam today.

                                Good luck to you! Also, if you mean that you were referred for review then for me it was about march 6th to today. So, around two and a half weeks.
