What a relief. After months of preparation (years really) I’m finally done taking the Applied Science portion of boards. It was definitely a challenging test. I was hoping to feel happy and relieved after the test like I was with the OAT. Instead, I was left with more of a feeling of nervous relief. It was more like, “Hmm. I knew I lot of those questions, but there were a bunch I didn’t know either.” Glad it’s done now. I really enjoyed the support I felt from the school as boards approached. Everyone was really genuine in their support, both before and after the test. I love SCO! My family has a great support too. When I got home, my wife and kids jumped out and surprised me. Yeah Dad! They also made a poster.
