I hope that's not typical, as it sounds  like you've done quite  alot... I am just now finishing my PhD in molec. biol., which it seems is not in super-high demand over there. I am guessing that my app cleared and went to "hiring contacts," as someone did get in touch with me.
 
Thanks for your story...

I have a start date next month and I was wondering if it was worth it to get a monthly parking permit or to just use the metro/bus?

Is it a disadvantage to come to the PTO with a BS versus a PhD  in trying to succeed at the PTO as an examiner.

I don't work there yet, but my understanding is that having a BS is all that is necessary to be an examiner.  MS and PhD are overkill, while a JD is good.
