Just got my letter for the Nov CFP.  I passed!!!!!!!

 
I thought it would be one more week till I knew.  What a great suprise.

Congrats!


Can anyone attest to how the CFP stacks up against the CFA and CPA exams?

Never mind, I tried that little search option that I've often recommended for others.

No, I thought we were another week out from getting the results and actually didn't think I had passed so I wasn't paying much attention.

Hey Gad - congrats - grueling exam - be proud. Now market the crap out of it.

I also found out today that i passed. What a relief!  It is a grueling exam but passable if you are well prepared.

I must admit I have not done as good a job in the marketing end of things as I'd like.....but I can change that...with a third hand and an 8th day of the week....

Congratulations to you both...

I am also awaiting the CFP results. I logged into the site and still no status....

First thing I did was send out a letter announcing to all of my clients that I went thru an intensive 2 year course of study, blahblahblah, and passed the 2 day exam. The letter came from and was signed by, my BOM. I got a ton of calls, congratulating me, in some cases, for the "promotion" Some understood it, obviously others didnt, but all were impressed. Whenever I talk to them, I point out that I can do a lot more for them than Stocks and Bonds.
 
In my networking group, at our weekly meetings, when its my turn to get up and introduce myself, I say I am a Certified Fin Planner, and talk aobut, or give a story that illustrates, what I do as a CFP thats different from most other FA's.
Whether or not this will all pay off will be evident over time.

I found out I passed the CFP test today also.  Very relieved.

Ok, I am posting this because I DID NOT KNOW...

 
You actually receive something in the mail. In about the next 7 days, it will also be on the CFP.net website, as well. I am in the Midwest and I am guessing the people who found out are East Coast? Anyways, I still haven't found out.
 
I am just posting this because I called the 800 number on the CFP website and found this out, which was a little different from the Q&A that the website gives.

I got mine Wed and I am in the Mountain West.  They told me it won't be on the website till the 7th.

I bet they are sending out letters to avoid having the website crash.  In the past they used to send out an email letting you know that your results were available, and understandably everyone would try to log on right away.  Consequently their servers would crash numerous times during the day and people wouldn't be able to sign on.

I was lucky...happened to see the email as soon as it came in, signed on right away and saved myself a day of frustration.

Me too!  Whoo Hooo!

I have received a letter from CFP,  I pass.  The national pass rate is 60%.

Jan 4, 2008 5:46 pm

My friends have received their letters, but they failed. I cannot be happy right now.

Jan 4, 2008 6:10 pm

I failed. Just got my letter.


 
Well, I guess it is out drinking tonight and figure out if I check out of life for 10 weeks to take it again in March or wait until July.
