    I cant remember if I put Columbus or not, just ask the nurse when you check in they have you fill out more papers then. Good luck!

    got scheduled for the psych eval may 9 so I'm assuming that means I passed the stress test! Anyone take the psych eval yet? What was it like?

    You can never go wrong wearing a suit to any of these tests...

    The psych is about 500 questions, multiple choice, there isn't much you can do to prepare yourself for it...

    VO2 max test (Bruce Protocol) measures how fast your body exchanges oxygen, so its not all about how long you run on the treadmill for, most people reach their max long before they quit running, and to be totally honest, if you can't pass that test, you're not even close to being ready for what's ahead...

    last rumor I heard was a class of 50 in June...

    so far no one has dropped from this class of 36 that's in right now.

    Thanks for all the advice, I am curious as to how long after the psych eval they inform you if you passed? Any insight would be appreciated....

    It was pretty much how I expected it to go, the test first and then you sit and talk with a doc, iI did end up waiting about an hour to get in for my appointment. The doc asked a lot of questions from childhood to present day, family life work etc. I felt good about it and i hope to recieve a final job offer June will be here soon. Good luck with yours!
