    So passing FM and MLC rather than just FM would be a good idea (this November)if I can pull it off? I've heard from some people that 3 exams or more may hurt your chances......which really doesn't make a lot of sense.

    I would go even further and say MLC only counts as half of an exam. In terms of adding value to a prospective employer, it's an exam that they don't have to give you additional study time for.
    Whether you are the lion or the gazelle, when the sun comes up, you better be running.

    I don't think so. In fact, I guarantee someone with a bachelor's and 2 exams passed isn't overqualified at all.
    Ugh.. I was writing entry-level and thinking internship. And I was writing full-time position and thinking entry-level.

    I was probably drunk or on meth.

    And this why people should not listen to me

    - junk
