Well, I didn't update there, I have to take it again to obtain a higher score. There are many in the queue and it's a long wait, unless I get at least 7 band score in each of the 4 directions, in which case I'd get 10 points bonus for the visa and have priority at the next invitation round (a round is held about every 2 weeks).
I just really didn't consider a trial, I guess. Makes sense, though. Will you be at the trial itself? Or will Puppo just fill you in?
I won't be at the trial, no. I really can't afford going to NY right now (I'd really wish to make a double USO-Vilas trial visit), plus, obtaining a US travel visa is a longer process and the trial and USO is already under one month from now.
