  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. I thought this one was the worst so far. There was too much random and insistent exposition and the tourney was weak. I think next week will redeem it but as a reader, this was the weakest.
  4. Hey Stego, I'll post on the main page but what are your thoughts for a post Boston bash? I'm still trying to get GRRM on a Boston pizza crawl (even if its just the 2 pizza places closest to the airport). Whatever you need for organizing help let me know. I'm in. Steve

  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!

    Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    This has made my Wednesday morning!
  8. [quote name='Ran' post='1461741' date='Jul 30 2008, 03.39']No. He's quite a bit younger, and half a world away besides. It's almost certainly Whoresbane.[/quote] What house is Whoresbane from again?
  9. [quote name='RWHamel' post='1461745' date='Jul 30 2008, 03.54']I don't know. Jorah might have aged, and wouldn't Whoresbane wear his house's heraldry. Something Jorah might not be willing to do at this time. Also, didn't Barristan seem to find Danny fairly fast. In the same respect it's possible that Jorah got back to Westeros.[/quote] I dont think it could be Jorah - too soon. If this takes place after ASOS then it could only be at most 4-6 months after Jorah left Dany. Doesnt seem like enough time for Jorah to cross half the world and grow a long white beard.
