    I am on the 15th. Does anyone know if there is a face to face portion of the psych after the written? I am coming from a bit out of town, so would like to see if I can do everything in one trip.

    It's 24%.
    Their measurement is a bit more accurate than a lot of the calipers used at 24 hour fitness and those gyms.
    That could be a good or bad thing....

    Congrats guys! Did everyone that got letters get a call first, or are they only mailing the notifications now? And when did you all finish your backgrounds?

    I got a letter without a call. And I believe my background was done on October 7th or 8th.

    I haven't gotten anything since the spring, when I received notification by mail that I had passed the written exam. I mailed and fax my CPAT certificate 1-2 months after that and haven't heard anything since. Anybody else in a similar position? I don't have a good feeling and don't think I will be hearing from LA again.

    Yeah, you probably waited a bit too long to submit your CPAT seems like everyone that is in the process at this point in time submitted theirs around 0800 on the very first day that you could have. Hold out though. Maybe you'll be in the running to fill future academies.
    Good luck!

    thanks upallday, i appreciate the reply. actually i wasn't counting on getting into the next academy or the one after, but if i have a shot at any future academies from this list, even if its a few years from now, i'll be satisfied. i'm just confused because they said everybody that passed the written exam and submitted a CPAT would have the opportunity at some point.

    The medical was easy. Just some basic stuff and blood work. The psych is super long so prepare yourself. Other than that.. That's pretty much all you do.

    I don't know how true that is, it does seem a good amount has been scheduled for interview, but I also know of some that hasn't. They prob just have questions regarding your psych written that they want to go over.

    I'm Scheduled for a psych interview, I'm not sure if its because they didn't like my answers on the test or if everyone who moves on gets one. Anyone know the answer?
