I think that?s correct...if you're after 6.19, it just costs you an extra
$100

I do not think you are reading this correctly.  I have the same info and I 
read it as you are eligible for grandfathering if you are licensed prior to 
June 19, not if you apply by June 19.

I have been looking at this, and also the MLSE program through NCEES.
