    Gotcha. Yea I guess it is about that time they said we would hear back. Thanks for the heads up! Good luck to everyone, if it doesn't work out stay in the hunt! It'll happen soon enough, keep working hard.

    Did the letter say not selected for the first academy or not selected period?

    So I have a question. I got an email today to apply for the "open enrollee" positions for this academy. It says they will draw six lottery style and those six will get into the academy. My question is, once done with the academy do you have a job? The Miramar website says the city is "excellent" at hiring those who make it through, but I would like to hear from someone working for SD or someone who actually knows what they do with these six. Thanks in advance!

    I recieved the same letter back in October for the 73rd open enrollee academy.I was not selected for the academy. I recieved the same letter yesterday (01/15/13)for the 74th academy.You are NOT paid to go through this academy. You're putting yourself through the academy with the POSSIBILITY of a job. It's a gamble, but its still an opportunity. Also found this video about the open enrollee academy

    Interesting concept

    Guess if enough people retire, and funding for those slits is kept they pick up the open enrolle

    But once again San Diego government and low pay

    You applying again? And I'm assuming you currently live in SD?

    I've got nothing to lose by applying again. Might as well roll the dice and hope for the best. I live in LA.
