We thought yesterday was a big day.
Yesterday, Alan called the Registrar and found out that he was ranked number seven on the list for consular. He took the oral exam on January 14th, so we expected a week or so for the processing. We were mentally prepared for him to get an offer for A-100's May class.
Today he received the offer email for March's A-1oo class.
We are local hires (already living in D.C.) so our transition into the FSO life will be a little slower than those hired from elsewhere. As we stay in our home and I in my job, others in A-100 will be uprooting themselves to move to the area for training which can be from 3 months to two years long.
