    Oh wow. Well congratulations. It sounds like you will have enough for a full class than. If not, maybe they will pull a few off the new list. That would be nice!

I could be wrong, but I believe there were just a shade under 30 of us on the list (who didn't get in the last academy; there was roughly 60 certified, including cadets, and they took 24 in September.) Of the eight people I met in the last process, seven of them received the letter, and one of those seven was hired elsewhere. The good news for us is there are no more cadets eligible until next semester, so it will be an all civilian academy.
    Congrats and have fun at academy!!!!

    Thanks :-) However I'm not going to celebrate until I actually receive the offer in writing. We've been certified since August of last year, so needless to say I've gone prematurely grey and bald in the past 9 months. It sounds quite promising, like unless someone got a scratch on the background, we're all going, but we are all on edge and remaining cautiously optimistic. From the timing of their last two classes, my guess is conditional offers will be tendered sometime around June 11th, so my only goal now is to not die from the stress of waiting. But from how it worked last year, the September class was all certified in December of 2010 with the January class, they just had to redo their CPAT when we did because it expired. All that expired on ours is our background, so from this anecdotal reasoning, if I had to bet I'd bet on yes :-) .....I hope....

    I am also on that list and received update info from civil service. I know 2 guys that were certified for the next tower but they got hired by other departments. I am sure they will be down to the bare minimum to fill the July class. Good luck to all in the process for the next list. Be patient. And stay clean. A guy I have been talking to for the last year got the same info but go a BUI on a boat a month ago and is panicked, as he should be, since that could toss ya pretty quick.

    Hey GordytheGolden, what rank were you after the written on the test that you took? Also, were you certified after the initail group was certified on your list?

    151 was my initial. And I didn't get certified until last August. I know they dropped back pretty far in the rankings because they lost a TON of people in backgrounds (as usual), and of the people I know, there's some from the 160s, 180s, and I think the lowest was like 212 or something. Last academy they took all the way back to the 140s I believe. Again, I don't think there's too many left on the certified list. They certified from the 60 who were invited to CPAT last year, hired 24, failed a handful in the CPAT, and have lost some more due to getting hired elsewhere or a scratch on their background since August. Again, through hearsay, it sounds like they only brought ~30 or so in to orals last year; the September class did their orals in December of 2010 with the first round.

    Again, a lot of my info is only through what I've heard and talking to people. I don't think anyone has any definite stats or anything, all of my stuff is from people I've met in the process, or from talking to some of the guys from last academy.

    Congrats first off! Have fun in the worm tube.

    So, you are saying just 2 academies off the last list testing then? That seems consistent with previous years, but just checking. Thanks for the info.

    All,
    I'm just wondering, how many of you typed your application? How many printed in color? how many filled out every line on your app? Thx

    I typed mine on my computer and printed in color. I filled in every line. If it didn't apply to me or if one of my references didn't have a home number for instance, I just put NA.

    What program did you use to do this? Did you create text boxes for each field and then fill in, or is there a better way of doing this? Thanks in advance.

    Great news for the guys on the old list. Congrats. Anyone heard anything about how that will or will not effect the Academy timeline for the new list folks? I wonder if that tentative October Academy is still an option or if we are pushed back by the July one.

    Latest word (from the Civil Service) is that academy will be pushed back due to the old list being used and huge budget cuts. Our first academy will most likely be Summer of 2013 and HOPEFULLY before the June 16th Cpat expires.

    I used adobe typewriter. I had to create a lot of text boxes. It took some time to get everything straight but when I was done it looked really good.

    My background investigator said that the earliest would be 2/13 but at the practice Cpat they announced that it would most likely be closer to summer/2013. Jeff Wilson should be able to clarify, he was there.

    Who has been losing sleep in anticipation of a phone call for the July academy? Has anyone heard anything about the upcoming academy?
