    I have mine tomorrow also. I talked to HR and they said they were going to do it all in one day. I was just curious, that way I could take off work and go ahead and make travel arrangements if needed. Thanks anyway. Good luck with your psych. I was impressed at how fast the medical went, they just pushed me right through.

    Not officially, but both doctors told me that everything looked good. Hopefully I am not looking too much into that. I hope they let us know soon, I don't know if I can take another wait. haha.

    Default Psych and poly

    I had both tests and everything was pretty straight forward. The second psych test was just a quick interview with the psycologist. But one important thing at the Physical!!! If any of you guys wear glasses get contacts!!! they won't let you take the eye test with glasses.( so naturally i failed. ) the Doc was cool and said i could come back and retake the test with contacts. I have never heard of that before and no one at the office or HR could really explain it real well.(if you guys know please explain) So just be aware guys and hopefully it will save you a trip. Good Luck and i hope to meet you guys in November!

    Anyone hear anything official yet? The company who does the background check said that their priority is to get them done quickly, so I was just curious.

    Also, how was everyone's psych eval? I was only in with the doctor for literally maybe ten minutes. Did you guys have the same experience?

    TDBROWNS527, I haven't heard anything new yet either. And my sit down for the psych was about 10 minutes as well. I noticed you were from Ohio. I'm from PA and it so happened my girlfriend got hired with the Howard County Public Schools as a teacher in the beginning of August. It was definitely a long month to wait and hear about the fire department but things worked out and I got offered employment like you. I just wanted to let you know the apartment complex that we live in gives discounts. Our discount is because my girlfriend is a teacher but they also give a firefighter discount. Its a quiet nice complex that isn't far off of Route 29 in Ellicott City. The name of the complex is Howard Crossings. Let me know if you want any more info. Hopefully we get the final word soon! Talk to you later.

    JSC, Thanks a lot for the information on the apartment complex. We have been looking for some places in the area, but the rent is either really high or far away from the academy.

    The apartment complex you live in sounds great and I would greatly appreciated it if you could give me more information. I will look it up later tonight to see if they have a website, but any other insight would be very helpful. Thanks again.

    I can definitely give you the info for the person you'd want to talk to here at the complex. If you want to email me at jsc4702@esu.edu I'll give you a number and the woman's name. Also the website for the complex is www.hirschfieldhomes.com the name of our community is Howard Crossings. I've driven from here to the training center and its only about 15-20 minutes depending on which way you take. I'll keep an eye on my email and get you the info as soon as possible.
