    CAT4 Upgrade Request Approved - Tip - Attach a Seperate Resume!

    Well, after waiting a week I sent out an email to the upgrade official today.

    Instead of using the USCF form to fill in my resume, I took the time to make a nice looking resume in MS Word and sent it to the official. My request was approved 5 hours after sending that email. The official also called my club's President, which probably helped.

    So a few hints for others looking to upgrade early:
    1. Make a nice looking resume
    2. Be on good terms with your club Prez
    3. Race good

    Advice that can be taken beyond an upgrade...People take you a lot more seriously if you look and act the part...
