    According to Wikipedia, the Source of All Knowledge
    –Roughly a third of the candidates that pass the test survive the next round, the screening by the QEP. (I think the Personal Narrative Questions are part of that).
    –The next stage is an oral test (in person). “Only about 10% of the original applicants at the written exam will ultimately make it past the oral examination.”

    In addition, a candidate needs to receive a Top Secret clearance and a Class 1 Medical Clearance. To qualify for class 1, a candidate needs to be “worldwide available,” rather than class 2, which is given to those “who have a medical condition that requires periodic and/or specialized medical evaluation or treatment, or whose medical condition would be aggravated by conditions at specific posts.”

    On the plus side, I feel confident about the security clearance.
