  1. I don't know if paying attention to the (horrendously terrible) polls qualifies you as "elite." (To be sure, their money qualifies them as elite and possibly out of touch at this point, but considering them biased liberal elitists is laughable.)
  2. Yeah, the show was at its best when they had the kids just being kids and interspersed topical episodes here and there where they really had something important to say. I actually liked last night's episode and the Bill Clinton stuff was funny even if it was very out of place given the circumstances, but really bothered me is what's been bothering me all season -- how they've handled the Trump/Garrison stuff. The Trump phenomenon was handled perfectly in that episode last season and they managed to be fucking prescient. They should have just brought an "American Trump" into the picture. The continuity arcs are cool but I don't know why they're so obsessed with doing them season to season all of the sudden. But even if they use Garrison as a stand in for Trump, the thing that bothers me most is that they've failed to capture the passion and zeal of the Trump effect. The whole mindless zombie member berry vomit thing just kind of erases, downplays, and white washes the real-world factors leading to Trump's win and a large portion of the country's visceral enthusiasm for him imo. They had a handle on all that much better last season -- particularly the Canadian Trump episode.
  3. That sucks. The worst part for me was that they didn't give any feedback on the personal narratives. I'm 50/50 about reapplying in the fall but have started to think about maybe going the USAID route. Thanks for the update.

  4. Hey, I remember promising to tell you whether or not I made it to the interviews for the foreign service. Unfortunately I was rejected as well.

  5. Thanks for the advice man! I'll definitely keep you posted. I'm currently in school and Spring Break is coming up so I'm going to work on the personal narratives then. Hopefully I'll be able to make it to the oral assessment!

  6. Congrats on passing! I passed the initial test last year and submitted the personal narrative essays before I was bounced. Let me know how you fare going forward (if you think of it). I plan on reapplying in the fall and am curious as to other people's experiences Check out the Yahoo groups site for the FSO if you haven't already. Good luck!
