    I am pretty sure there is going to be another class starting Jan 14, which means you'll prob be finding out really soon if you did well enough to move on to that class. Does anyone know if they rerank after the psychological and other steps?

    If anyone who got picked in the first academy does not mind, please keep the rest of us up to date on anything you hear.

    Anyone know if they help you find housing if you're from out of state?

    Thanks for any help.

    More than likely not

    But if you ask sure they would recommend

    Or if you get accepted, start asking on here if anyone needs a roommate , if you are single

    Plenty of places around Austin, some cost a little

    Suggest if you are single try short term lease near the academy

    Traffic is not fun in Austin

    Anyone here going out for this year's process? Feels like I'm refreshing the "Prospective Applicants" page constantly to see if they've posted the timeline. Last year's applications were due April 1-4, but I don't know how much advance warning they gave people before they were due.

    I was set to take the written exam w/ Austin but due to finances, I was not able to. I plan on taking this years exam. I wonder how many recruits Austin is planing to hire? God speed.

    I too have been updating their prospective applicants page over and over. It looks like last year, according to post 1, it was known in Feb when the test would be. It sounds like they are running a little later than last year. This has been a trend lately for apparently as San Antonio tested later, and Ft Worth too is going on over a year since their last test.

    I did see this page on the Austin site: http://austintexas.gov/department/mi...ons-fire-cadet
    Interesting line from the site: "Following are the requirements for a Fire Cadet. Applicants must meet all requirements as of May 13, 2013".
    I feel that implies they were looking to test on May 13, 2013....I dont see that happening though since no applications have been taken yet.

    Still no timeline posted, but the sidebar now has this flyer, which also lists the May 13, 2013 date.
