In addition to the above posted listing,
 
I need someone to take over my apt lease which ends June 30th.  It's empty and available to move into today.  The price is only $750.  The complex is called Foxchase and has free shuttle that takes you directly to King st. metro, which is also where the PTO is located.  Please email if interested.

Thanks.

I also have been waiting for months for feedback following my PTO application (molecular biology, Ph.D., USPTO registered).
A previous poster said that no more biotech examiners are to be hired in '07- a pretty devastating rumor for some of us.
Can anyone corroborate this?  
 
Perhaps we can guage a timeline for all the nail-biters: for some of you starting now, when did you first apply, and what field of work?
 
What might be the ratio of GS-9s to GS-11s coming in?

You heard correctly, biotech is not hiring.  I would recommend applying in the organic chemistry area if you feel like you would be comfortable with that subject matter, they are hiring.  Mostly GS-11's seem to be coming in.

Getting $95 in Seattle.  That's not quite double what I was making in VA, but it's close.
