PMF Nominations

[Crossposted to GovLoop here]

The list of 2011 PMF nominations came out a couple of days ago. I've been too busy to do more than glance over the list, but figured I would point out the stats from the top. Of the over 9100 applicants, 7482 were nominated by their schools.

Next week, from what I hear, nominees will begin taking the online assessments. I am interested in what you all think of the assessment, bearing in mind you probably don't have any previous PMF assessments with which you can compare. Also, we don't want to run the risk of exposing too much information (the PMF Program Office gets really touchy about that).

Since the PMF Program Office will eventually remove the nominees list, I have placed it where you can always access it: click here.

Let me know if you have any trouble getting to it.


  1. I took the online assessment. The first two sections were based on previous work/life experience and hypothetical situations. The essay section was challenging for me, as the time limit was much shorter than essays I am used to writing. I've got my fingers crossed, but must admit that the competition is stiff.

  2. What I found interesting was the essay said it was computer scored. Made me wonder if it will be based on the Flesch-Kincaid reading level used by Word or some other readability indicator to give you a score. I just hope my Vet preference gets me over the hump.
