    The final four phases are over the next few weeks, so I probably won't hear anything back until Dec if and when..... I don't want to get to excited because I seem to be the only one in this situation. I've been in this situation before and sucks to expect to get in and not.

    Have you guys already received final offers?

    Have not heard of any final offers going out yet so you never know until you know. Being in limbo and this close is a bit wearing though.

    Yes this is very wearing, but as they say good things come to those who wait, and patience is a virtue. I am curious however if they would extend the final offers to the people who have already satisfied the requirments now, or wait until december when this other guy and who knows who else also complete the requirements for their conditional offer? hmmmm

    Conditional offers don't mean much, I have received two in the last couple months and still don't have a job. Those are given out pretty freely and always to more applicants than spots open.

    Nothing yet, got my medical results this week but have yet to hear anything from the department. Got to love the waiting game, just one of those things.

    Is that room still open? I'm looking for a place for the upcoming academy for ACFD by Jan 1. I tried sending you a PM but it didn't go through. Feel free to send me a message if it's still open.


    Thanks

    Does ACFD have Kelly Day's? I read the schedule is 24on 24off 24on 24off 24on 96off. Also, are there many opportunities for overtime hours?

    So now, who's moving into the area for the class? I'm looking to get a place somewhat close to the academy and split it with someone.
    Congrats on your graduation this past Friday!

    Thanks Bones! It's been a long 5 1/2 months, but it's finally coming to an end, and starting out in the station next week!
