    Good luck man. Heard it's hard, but not too terrible if your basically familiar with your language.

    91 :wtc:

    I was taking it because a job slot for cryptologic linguist opened up and there was only one more guy trying for it. He got a 99. I really messed up on the first section about where you identify the stresses in certain words.

    are these the most up to date score cutoffs? ive found a few different answers.

    Cat. I = 95
    Cat. II = 100
    Cat. III= 105
    Cat. IV = 110

    edit: read on goarmy.com that 105 is the qualifying score for DLI.

    Am I pretty much hopeless for getting an intel job if I cant score higher on the DLAB? I speak fluent spanish. Read, Write, Speak. Does it count for anything?

    No, intel is more than just languages. What will disqualify you from intel is a rocky past, and/or bad credit.

    I took it about four years ago, and it's basically based on your natural ability and probably just a bit of luck. The most important thing is not to stress over individual questions and fall behind during the test. If you do, you'll end up Christmas treeing a fuck ton of questions just to catch up. Just prepare yourself for the bull shit jibberish you're going to be listening to, and you'll be alright. That's pretty much what I did, and I did pretty well.
