    Hey March Guys, I was Looking through the thread and I only see 3 that made the (61-90) cut.
    Texas817 #78
    Sam88 #79
    Me # 85.
    Is there any more guys from March that is on this thread, just wondering, who is local who is not. The reason is it would be nice if we can get as much of us as possible so we can may be exchange info, or meet, and get to know each other. U know being in the same class and all.
    So if anybody else would like to post their rank, or know anybody in March class, we can get together, even work out together if possible.
    Just a thought though. Good luck to everyone.

    You can drive the engine at any rank. Driving is one of the first skills learned in the academy.

    Got all of my gear today, and got to meet a few classmates. Made it a little more real getting all my uniforms, bunkers, and the everything else. 7 days guys. For anyone who is picking up your gear tomorrow, make sure you allow a few hours. It takes a while.

    Heads up to Oct recruits: There should be an email sent to you with two attachments that you'll need before the 10th. One is a "New Employee Setup Form", and the other is a supply list of items you'll need for the Academy. It's a pretty large list of items, so you might want to get started soon.

    Well I have a bit of a funny story. When I called to get my rank I was told I was #244. Needless to say, this was a bit of a bummer. However, a gentleman called me today regarding transcripts and said I was on the list for the March class. What?! Apparently, I ranked #86. Not sure what the mix up was but I couldn't be happier right now!!!

    I would probably still be in the dark had I turned in the correct documents lol. I asked him three different times if he had the right guy. I even called the recruiting office to confirm my rank. Still doesn't seem real, I had already accepted that I just didn't cut it. No word on a start date.

    I'm sitting @ 103, but after reading Novasdaddy story, I'm going to call the recruiting office again to double check my ranking. I hope DFR decides to extend the hiring list or folks decide to decline their offer. God speed.

    I just called and she told me I'm #99. So I guess somehow I moved up one spot.

    I got the call for transcripts as well, I asked since I was 91, why they needed them. He said that they are contacting the next 10 ranked in case of dropouts, he also said there have been 2-3 dropouts thus far. Not sure what this means for me or the rest of us, but its looking up.

    I called yesterday to triple check that I was in fact, on the list for the March class. She said the office is relocating to Dolphin St. (I'm assuming she was referring to the academy) and that I should be getting a call in a couple weeks. Good luck to those of you on the edge of getting hired. A lot can happen between now and March! If any of the guys in the current, October class still check this forum I would really like to hear how the academy is going for you. Thanks One more note, I found a really great video on Youtube made by one of the recruits from class 306. Here's the link, http://youtu.be/GhTP-BjQG9c

    I just wanted to throw this out there. A few of us that will be starting in March met up today to introduce ourselves. If there is anyone else that has been following this forum that was in the 61-90 rank, feel free to shoot me an email. I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say we would love to meet you prior to the beginning of the academy. Just let me know.
