Congrats again! Did you qualify on grounds of education? Is that why they're verifying that?

On the application I qualified based on experience. So I assume they'd just verify with my current employer.

Yes, I qualified under Superior Academic Achievement for GS-7. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a 4.0. I went back to school late in life so I'm new college graduate in my early 40s.

Awesome! That's probably why they are doing an academic check on you. They usually wouldn't do this for qualifying on the basis of experience.
