Welcome!!!
My ex-firm had a client at CSFB who when he needed an example for overdoing it and wasting time, he said:

"We investment bankers,, we have to take this test called the series 7. You need a 70 to pass. A 71 is WASTED HOURS OF YOUR LIFE!!"

I tend to agree.. Just some advice ;) GOOD LUCK!!!

Have your attorney sent Wet a quick note on letterhead attesting that you are licensed.

Welcome and good luck on the 7.  Remember to take plenty of practice exams (this is key!!!!), if a rock head like me can pass, I'm sure you will do well.

Welcome OcalaBoy, since you are not currently licensed I have restricted your access to the site.  IF you passed your 7, then please PM me.

Thanks to Straddle_It for bringing this thread to my attention!

Congrats Ocalaboy. Nice job. 
I remember the day after i passed my 7. My Regional Director happened to be in the office, and my Branch Manager introduces me and says "Sportsfreak just passed his series 7 yesterday with a 94. The RD shakes my hand and says, "Thats great, congratulations. Too bad the score on the 7 has no correlation to whether you are gonna make it or not"

Seriously, good luck. Use this board alot. I wish i had it as a resource when i started.

I would just like to point out that when SF took the 7, it only focused on trading livestock.  So his 94 and your 89 are not comparable.
