    I received one automated call and no calls from actual people. They definitely put more effort into some people versus others.

    Ah, my fault. For some reason I assumed you graduated on Friday. I guess Dame803's offer will be valid a little longer, lol.

    I'll be at the 6am PFP session tomorrow, for those who can't make it, I'll let y'all know how it goes and of course if I hear anything about the test scores.

    Nothing new, just waiting on the DOJ to let AFD release the scores and that hopefully that happens in the next two weeks. We were told that AFD plans on inviting a lot of candidates to the SOI..so yup, bout 3 fitty worth of info is all I got.

    Yeah, we had a chief in our 6 p.m. session and he said they anticipate still holding the SOIs July 17-18. Everything else is on schedule except the actual results release date. He wouldn't even venture a guess at when those would be out, but he said "I expect soon." So I guess we'll just keep waiting.

    I'm super stoked for PFP and I hope one of you is in the 6 p.m. class with me! One of the people in charge (Jan Todd) was once considered the strongest woman in the world. Her deadlift world record (474.5 lb at 146 lb) makes my head spin. I can't wait to work with her.

    If I didn't live so far away I'd be glad to attend, but to travel from Round Rock to the heart of Austin everyday would start to add up, so I'll stick to my own workout schedule.

    I have to get there from SE Austin (still not as bad as Round Rock, though) and am not looking forward to 14 weeks of losing my evenings, but the tradeoff definitely seems worth it. They said something like 80% of past participants have easily completed the CPAT, most with plenty of time to spare. The time to spare part sounds appealing because it gives me a chance to catch my breath in the tunnel

    You ever get a feeling in your gut that something is going to happen really soon? Woke up with that yesterday morning for the test results and can't shake it. Crossing every single finger it's not a fluke.

    If they did that it would lead to more problems, because what if the DOJ required everybody to retest. Now you possible got people that interviewed that didn't pass the test or you got people making extra trips for nothing.

    From what I was told, AFD is waiting for feedback from the DoJ, there's some "things that need to be finalized" and we should get an update in the next few days. But the process is moving quickly, and AFD is trying to release our scores asap From that, I feel confident that AFD has no plans of cancelling SOIs.

    That's not the same. The same would be if they found out that the test was leak, allowed some people to move on to the next step, then decide that they to retest after wasting their time and everybody else time. I don't know the details about what happened, but I'm sure after they found out the test was leaked they decided then to redo the interviews not after allowing people to move on to the next step.
