    Hey guys. Congrats to those of you who passed CPAT. I just wanted to wish everyone luck with their interviews coming up. I had mine two weeks ago and I feel that it went very well. Hopefully all of you will feel the same way after yours. Good Luck!

    Today I called to change my address, and they informed me that we would hear something on, or shortly after September 15th. The people who are selected will be pushed through the rest of the process rather quickly due to the fact that Recruit Class starts in November.

    Anyone ever taken a Psych Eval before?

    Thank brown, that makes a big difference. I have taken a psych before but i don't remember a whole lot. I know its geared to stress u out a little but i cant remember anything specific. I just remember answering the questions the best i could and I passed. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

    Thanks Bodie, I appreciate it. I am really just looking for information on how the test is performed. I know there is usually a questionnaire and an interview. Is there anything else? Does the doctor tell you if they are going to recommend you a pass there, or do you have to go through another dreadful wait?

    I would say lots of running, i know for the CPAT Prep they ran 2miles out and back the main road leading to the academy. I would train hard to be ready for anyhting they might thro at us if we get the letter, i know thats what i'm doing. Train hard work hard and study hard! It will pay off in the long run! Goodluck to all...dose it still look like sometime around the 15th for the letters? Im going to try and call see if i can get any information.

    Goodluck everyone!

    Good news!! Got a call today about psych and physical. They are both the third week of sept. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well. Good luck to all those still waiting. Don't be afraid to call them, it seemed like i was waiting forever. I hope your guys are as fortunate as i am to move on to the next step in the process.

    Someone who works at HoCo stated on the Central PA Fire forums that the chief had dinner with some co-workers and that 45 people will be hired. Phone calls to those who passed the interview started yesterday, I guess.

    I called today to tell them that I finished my medic class this morning and they didn't say anything to me about moving on, or not moving on for that reason. I would still await letters around the 15th before anyone counts themselves out.

    Bodie, congrats to moving on to the next step. Are they just sending you your conditional offer of employment in the mail?
