Also, when I log into the e-learning site, it shows "Completed" for all Modules 1-8. Is this the loophole that was discussed earlier in this thread? i.e. I can say that I HAVE completed modules 1-8 and IA and 4 exams already (as specifically stated in APC requirements)?

Everything has to be on your transcript. So even though you completed the modules, they don't show on your transcript. I had the same problem after I passed C, I had the preliminary pass but I had to wait until it went on my transcript to apply.

Registration for February is already closed as of today. Not surprised...

In other news, May is now open.

Any idea when San Fran (May) will be full? I imagine it's gotta be one of the most popular locations. I probably won't be eligible to register until March...

The first APC this year filled up within like 5 days of opening registration. I met the requirements in November but had applied and kept my APC app pending. So luckily my registration was pushed to Feb APC without me having to catch them opening registration over the New Years.

Seems like they fill up at least within 2 months of opening.

Why would SF be one of the most popular locations? I would've thought NY or Boston (though I'm biased because I have to come to SF every day).

In all seriousness though, I would leave a month and a half. So my guess would be late March.

I hope you're right. I guess I just say that because SF is a pretty hip/trendy city for young adults these days. I figured NY and Boston were right up there as well, but I'm sure SF is more popular than places like Baltimore or Atlanta.

That's fair. Best of luck!

I will be going to the APC in New York. I guess this is a long shot, but I am 1) unemployed and 2) female. Any ladies going to this that would be interested in sharing a room (for money saving purposes only)?
