Foreign Service Update

For the record (and for those in the know), I passed with a 5.3 in the Consular cone.

Learn to say the following in your foreign language of choice:

"Unfortunately, at this time you don't qualify for a visa to visit the United States. This letter explains why. You may re-apply at any time."

Hilarious consul-at-arms! Thanks. Maybe that will come up in the phone conversation test. I'll just repeat it over and over until they give me a passing score :)

I wasn't thinking about that eventuality, but perhaps you should save that little gem for later.
