1.  POPA has not updated their site.
2. The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) approves just about all  pay raises for all federal employees.
3.  OPM approved the pay raise for the examining corps.
4.  OPM releases the updated salary tables, not POPA or the USPTO.
5.  You agreed to a GS level/step not to a specific salary.  The salary for any GS leve/step will change every year; e.g., COLA, locality, special increases, etc.
6. The raise will be applied to the patent GS schedules and not to select people.  Every grade and every step will increase by 7%.  You get the increased pay no matter when you start.

Thanks for taking the time to outline all of that.  I think that really helps.  It helped me understand the process a little more.

anybody know how they determine whether you get the 6 month promotion while you're in the training academy?  does it have anything to do w/your scores on quizzes?

I heard they have pop quizzes, and if you miss more than a certain amount of questions you will not receive the special promotion.
