Invitations for the August A-100 training class in DC are going out this week. Jake is ranked 52 out of 159 which most likely means no call for August. We still think there might be a slim chance for September, and if there is an October class (won't know until the funding for the 2011 fiscal year comes out) he could possibly get into that one. We were talking the other day, though, about the craziness of the Political register and how if he had signed up for any of the other four tracks he would have been invited to the June A-100 class. That got us thinking about him trying to get on another register and this morning he signed up to take the FSOT again. I have mixed emotions about all this. It's such a long, grueling process, which I mentioned a few months ago HERE. Thankfully, once he passes the OA in DC the second time he can go on the register pretty quickly because he already has his security and medical clearances. Assuming he passes the FSOT, QEP, and OA, he would get on the Consular register sometime in November. I'm not sure if he will have to pass his French off again so we will cross that bridge when we get there. For now, we are trying to gear up for Round Two, but of course hoping we won't need to be on another register and Jake gets an invite in the next couple months. Fingers crossed.
