That was the old system. There is simply "Recommend (R)", Highly Recommend"(HR) or Not Recommend (NR) code assigned to each applicant at the end of the process. No more scores or reshuffle after each interview. There will be R and HR in each class to provide a mix.

Gents, I took the test last week as well. No phone call yet. I was able to finish and see my score. I will let you know if and when I get a call. Currently flying the right seat at a regional. Glad to see the diversity in the group!

April 2014. They left me a voicemail as well as an email to call them back.

Oh, that's right. I'd still argue the process is opaque at best. There's one RJ guy who was put in the pool in May 2013. (so, an R at least) Most of the guys from that interview group didn't get class dates until this spring because things had slowed down for a while. He hadn't been called yet, and this summer I asked JC if a guy in his situation should re-apply or just email HR. JC was emphatic that they knew they'd left some guys swimming for a long time, but that the pool would be drained entirely. He's never been called, responses from HR have been vague, he's never been told to re-apply or that he's out for whatever reason, just kinda left in limbo. If they're not re-indexing and flushed the pool, what happened? I imagine by now he's moved on.

Took the test a week ago and passed using CRM. All gouge is accurate. Many questions from the ATP test bank. At least 3 questions on SLOP, one of which said something about 15mi offset. Several descent planning questions on a STAR using 3:1 planning factor. Quite a few weather questions (definitions) at least two on jet stream. JFK IAP questions.

I finished and timed out checking my answers. I was able to log back in to see my score (distance learning format as previously described). Out of curiosity I tried again today to log in and was able to do so.

My numbers:
internal rec, 3100TT 2900 Turbine, 480PIC, Mil only.

If there was a "15 mile offset" question it was probably related to the contingency procedures if you need to get off the NATs. It sounds like it might be a good idea to have a copy of the MNPS on you if you take it. Be familiar with where to find different things if you don't know them. RJ guys won't be able to find those answers in the FARs.

SLOP is also found in the MNPS, but consists of flying route center line or offsetting 1 or 2 miles right. Never left. There isn't anything else you can get out of a question about SLOP that I can think of.

If you're on a SLOP you're required to return back to the original airway (rather that be a random track or a published NAT when they're active) prior to coasting in. Don't know if it's a test question but it is a requirement when discussing it.

Checks, I'm pretty familiar with SLOP and the MNPS. It wasn't route abort, IFE, or weather avoidance. It had to do with overtaking on the NAT. I picked none of the above, but don't know for sure that it was right. Now that I think about it, it was multiple NAT questions not multiple SLOP questions. The other NAT question I remember had to do with radio procedures (sorry, it was a week ago and I might have had a couple drinks prior to my original post).
