    I guess that would depend on how many and how well bi-lingual candidates scored on the test. Has anybody else heard anything since being asked if you can speak another language?

    There will be a second academy this year. I don't know if the second group of candidates know who they are, but the city does.

    I heard from DOT that the second group has been selected and will be notified sometime this month and then following that they will notify those that didn't qualify for anything. If anyone out there is hoping for a second academy notice as well please post if you hear anything, if I hear anything else I certainly will.
