Maybe they will grade on a curve?
And since it is Texas no one fails!!
Maybe they'll move all 5,000 of us forward to CPAT, too.
By the way, if anyone needs somewhere to stay for SOIs, I live about 15 minutes away from Bowie HS. My interview is the 18th at 1 p.m. and could give a ride if yours is the same time. Otherwise it's two buses away.
I talked to someone today...the interview will be a recorded interview that will be graded on a later date...
Darn Feds want everything tapped I mean taped
Have any of you gone out for San Antonio? Their application process makes me jealous of the simplicity.
I am. I like their process much much more than Austin's. Even though everything depends pretty much on your initial test, if you do well there, and stay out of trouble, everything is straight forward...no bs with retesting, test leaks, investigations etc.
You do not have to live there just driving in sa
Anyone else going to the Q&A session they just emailed about? Wondering if it's worth missing a PFP session or giving up my only night off from PFP.
For those of you who will be attending the Q&A session, it would be much appreciated if you can give us the highlights of the session for those of us who cannot make it.
I myself will be attending as well!
When you enter the interview room, you will hear a brief introduction and then begin the interview. You
will be given three hypothetical scenarios with related questions. The amount of time for each response is
provided in the introduction instructions. You will hear the question read aloud and a written copy of the
questions will be available for you to follow.
Your response to the interview questions is being videotaped. It is natural to be nervous. Many candidates have
found the following suggestions to be helpful:
Try to look at the camera or the screen and speak clearly. Many people find that watching themselves in
a mirror or videotaping themselves while they practice answering questions gives them an idea of how
they will look on camera.
Listen carefully to the interview question and formulate an organized, comprehensive response. Do not
be afraid to pause during the interview to gather your thoughts.
Answer the question that is asked.
Avoid rambling on about unrelated issues or, the opposite, providing answers that are too short and
dont convey your knowledge on the subject
After your interview, you will be required to stay at the testing site until everyone else in your group has
completed their interview. If you have a morning interview time (8am or 10am) expect to stay until 1pm. If you
have an afternoon interview time (1pm or 3pm) expect to stay until 5pm. You will have access to water and
restrooms during this time.
Um...8am-1pm and most of that is waiting? :confused:
