    Video interviews would require a lot of money in cameras and men to man them/ administer the test. I think they are doing citizen panels or the teachers from that school are grading our responses based on a given template.
    But that is just my shot in the dark.

    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.

    Have any of you gone out for San Antonio? Their application process makes me jealous of the simplicity.

    On the flip side, it seems to be a total boy's club there. Only 9 females in the top 200 candidates from last year.

    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.

    Also, downside of having to live in San Antonio! Jk, Jk, I'm from SA. I'm probably going to apply too. I wish Austin's test process was simple like SAFD too.

    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.

    I'll probably go, you should do a morning PFP session with us! Then you won't have to miss.

    Man, I'd love to do a morning session but I have to be at work in SE Austin by 8 and I can't show up looking like I just dragged Rescue Randy up two parking garage ramps!

    Haha Randy, that's tomorrow! Today is sledge hammer day, Kim put plates on the tires so now we have targets. It's awesome hearing the ping.

    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'm going to both Q&A sessions. I'll be sure to hook y'all up with a summary of the sessions.
