    Are there any weekend classes ?

    Also, is his number listed on the business card ? I tried emailing him and nothing yet.

    Why is it that every now and again, one of us, whose normal, and closing in on getting into the Academy posts a totally logical question about Stairmaster or Psych prep and etiquette only to be insulted by some complete idiot trying to make themselves sound tough? I don't mean most cuz I've gotten great insight on issues from awesome fellow candidates on here but some just take away from it like its helping them or making them look cool. I'm a Marine Vet, and I always make sure to give everyone respect. Some of us will probably run into each other in the academy. Why be negative? Best job in the world around the corner for a lot of us. I watch some working against one another and what I feel all this stands for, and means to me, when more should be looking out for one another. I don't know, I'm venting. Am I just an *********?

    I've been reading and analyzing these forums for about 2 years now and I completely understand where your sentiments lie Jack.

    Things are positive on here for a while, one man helping another man out ... and then all of a sudden ... someone gets the urge to just be a complete total jaq a$s for no apparent reason. Sometimes I ask myself, why ? Where does that urge come from ?

    So you know more about this process than the next candidate ? So you've been on like 7 eligible lists before this one ? so every male person older than you in your family is OTJ ?

    Big deal. Still doesn't mean you have to be a jerk about it.

    This forum has been and can continue to be a great asset for our class and many classes to come ... and if somehow we can contain or even eliminate the smug, pompous remarks ... it'd be even better.

    What number are you? They only call up to a certain list number I believe for the practice session. You would get a packet in the mail.

    Then you need a doctors waiver form signed and your ID when you show up for the practice sessions.

    You just can't show up I believe.

    That would have been good to know with your original question. They should have sent you an invite to do the info session. Emailing that guy Lin is probably the best move.

    You need to be invited. Either they didn't invite you yet, or they meant to and it got lost along the way. Get ahold of someone there and see if your list # should have been givin an invite. Don't just show up to the rock on a random night.

    They tell you to bring it with you the first orientation day but neither myself nor anyone I know had it accepted on the first orientation day. As far as I know, everyone had it taken on the first real cpat day. I feel like they tell you to have it on the orientation day so they know you will have it come the real test. If they ask for it when its really needed and you forget, you're screwed. If they ask for it when you dont need it, and you forget, you still have the extra time to get it. Just get it for the orientation.

    It's possible that there are two candidates on the list with the same names . And I mean identical names , And he just happens to be the one with the higher score , it's all based on the social security number .

    I was wondering where you heard about this $25 money order, than I decided to take a closer look at my CPAT orientation notice. I totally never unfolded the thing completely and missed the whole section where they tell you about this $25 money order amongst other things.

    Disregard. I made a mistake, the search function was skipping his name for some reason.

    At what point do all these people have to prove residency? is it before or after the CPAT
