    If you look back at last class the guys who where at the top of the class recived there letters to report friday before there two weeks. Then the second class started receiving there letter the week after. So maybe the guys who will be in the 188 will recive there letter on friday and the 189 letters could go out monday after hr puts that class together

    Next Friday. This info is good. We're getting close. I hope we all mak it. I figure you don't follow this forum unless you want this. The benefit of the long process we've gone through is that it'll held weed out those who aren't serious about joining PFD!

    True somewhere on here someone called on a wednesday to hr and they said letters will go out that friday then the next day someone posted they got their letter so when they called they just said it to get them off the phone. The letters were already out for the mail so just be on mail watch from now til august 12/16th. We have waited this long what is another week or so.

    Letters will get printed next week. I know how hard this wait is. Just think of the 2 years the upcoming test takers are going to have to endure as we have. It's nice to be so close to the end. Hope we all make it.

    I hear only a mile the first day. Some people can barely do that. They work up to about 3 miles. I wonder if they'll get to 400 on the list?

    1mile the 1st day & 2 mins of push-ups & sit-ups. Are your ranked near 400 ?
