    Since you are new to the area let me know if you need any help finding any housing or whatever. I live pretty close to the academy. I am starting in december.

    See you Wednesday! Wow. It's really here. Guess who won't be sleeping tonight or tomorrow.

    I was able to get the physical and fingerprinting out of the way today. Just a heads up to the Dec guys, the physical took 2 hours. By the time I turned in the paperwork and got my letter from the personnel dept to show the equipment dept, they were already closed. Good thing there's one more day before we start!

    I want to get to sleep early but if anyone wants to grab dinner or something, hit me up. I think I'll be staying somewhere right near the academy for at least this week.

    Nope no email...hmmm. Also, when I checked in today they didn't even have a conditional letter for me at first. Can you PM me the details?

    2 hours? Was it the wait or just a really involved physical?

    The wait...at least at the Mesquite or South Garland location. The actual process took all of 10 mins. Same with the fingerprinting but no waiting.

    Nice, do they do your physical and drug test all together or seperate locations?

    Well October class has started but there is still about 100 of us waiting to start, let's keep this thread going, anybody hear any new info? I heard they took 100 in the October class, so I'm wondering if they will merge the next two classes?

    If they combine the dec and march class will they call the march guys or just send them a letter. Also how many days do we have to tell them we want the job, not that i dont want the job just saying becuase mail do get misplaced.

    Called today and nothing new. Letters are going out soon for the December folk! They're just trying to tie up any lose ends with the class that started today.

    Hang in there fellas! There were just over 100 recruits there today. I believe that included both the former sub-rookies as well as those recruits who will be the next batch of SRs. I believe those new SRs will be assisting with recruiting starting tomorrow, but don't quote me.

    Today was orientation, which was a lot of paperwork and general information. Tomorrow is diversity training and the actual in-class stuff won't begin until at least Mon or Tues. They are swamped as apparently they aren't used to having so many recruits at once.

    GiveMeAChance, Thank you for the update. You know us on the back side are a little antsy! We are kind of like baby pit bulls biting at the ankles of the recruiters and I'm sure they are close to being fed up with us!
