Mom's gotta brag, if ya don't mind

Yep, uh-huh, I am very, very proud! My daughter took the Suffolk County Police Exam quite a while ago--maybe in the spring? She's been waiting for some kind of response. NYC sends out a a notice. Well, she found out yesterday that Suffolk simply publishes the scores on line.

They only publish the names of those who passed. In this case, we're talking 27,000 applicants. That's thousands, folks.

My daughter got a 90!!!

And her rank was just a bit under 3400. I'm terrible at math, but that surely puts her close to the top 10%!

Now, they take students into the police academy here every six months. There are other tests that have to be taken, which will narrow the playing field. And Katherine does have to work on her weight issues. She says this is great motivation! I can see her in the academy in about a year, maybe 2.

Oh, and for the record...the next police exam isn't until 2011!
