good news!

Yesterday Andy found out that he passed the FSOT, the first step in becoming a Foreign Service Officer himself!

Now he has to submit five personal narrative essays. Then, likely in May, he’ll learn if he can take the Oral Asssessment, which would happen between July and October. Then he would have to get his medical and security clearances. Then he’d wait on the register until he was invited to A-100.

As you can see, we haven’t crossed the finish line of tandem couplehood just yet, but it’s a promising start!

Any advice from other tandem couples out there?

  1. Hi, I found your blog on the weekly roundup and have been enjoying your updates. My husband is an FSO with USAID and we will be moving to Armenia next Dec/Jan. That is really exciting news about your husband. Good luck with the process!

    Way to go, Andy! That’s just wonderful!

  4. Congrats to Andy! I plan on taking the FSOT in June, so I can one day be part of a tandem couple too but I am very nervous, so we’ll see.
