    @JCamo, Did you take your poly here locally, or are you out of area?

    I took it here at the Ruiz Protection Services office by Harry Hines. It was just really messed how I was treated. He kept messing up the wording on a question and then he would get angry when I kept telling him no and it was the simplest question too. He eventually yelled at me and cursed at me for his mistake. To top it off, I have a scar on the inside of my wrist that is from an accident where I broke the bones in my forearm and had to have surgery and he had the balls to ask if I tried to kill myself and chuckle.

    wow. That's pretty unprofessional. I took mine at the same place we had the interview just down the hall. My technician was extremely down to earth, professional and very welcoming of any questions and very helpful calming me down and answering any questions. Could not have asked for a better person.

    Are you from out of town or local? Do you know of anyone else that received a call?

    I had a guy that gave me a full on interrogation during mine. My anxiety was pretty high during all of it too. Possibly the same guy but I wouldn't let it get to you.

    My thought is, they will continue to call over the next week wrapping things up by the end of that week. Seeing as how the following Monday is the 24th, it would make sense to tell everyone to call who hasnt recieved a call. If I dont hear anything by then Im assuming its because I didnt get the job. Your "ranking" is just for personal gratifcation I guess. As unfortunate as it may be, if you rank #91 your out. That being said, who really knows whats going on lol

    I asked for my rank when she called, and she said I would get it when I went in for fingerprint/drug test/etc... When I called on the 13th, the first lady I spoke with told me not to call for 2-3 weeks. She said if I didn't get a call soon, that there was still a chance I was in the second class.

    Congrats to all who have gotten the call. I'm looking forward to meeting you guys. @juiceboxmedic I was hoping they would share the academy date soon. The only bad thing about not telling your employer is that you might not have 2 weeks of notice. My company has known about the process for a few months now, so they've been prepared if I was to get the call.

    Well I already put my last day for the 6th, but my last actual work day is on the 26th. I have family that will be taking me in for the duration of the academy.

    Here's to the start of a new week of phone calls! Good luck to everyone.

    Is anyone going to be driving from the South Fort Worth area? I'm looking to see if anyone might be interested in saving a little gas and ride-sharing to academy? You can PM me if so.

    GO COWBOYS!!!
