    Heard there was about 18 that were still being sent out. That's from an internal source. Valid or not, not sure

    Thanks for the response. So I'm guessing they've already called about 52 recruits if your source is correct.

    Hey guys,

    Anyone else pass their BI but still waiting on conditional? My appointment was 5 weeks ago tomorrow. I just want to gauge the possibility of being in the 2nd or 3rd academy at this point....

    I did mine back in August and I didn't hear anything for about 8 to 9 weeks.

    Did my psych interview today. Hoping on a call sometime early next week. Has anyone heard whether or not January is at capacity yet? At this point, I'm expecting June will start getting filled.

    I know that they are being fitted for uniforms the 30th of this month. So I'm starting to assume they have there 70.

    Okay, thanks. That's about the time frame I've been hearing. FFB0519, thanks for the reply. I'm at least glad there are others....

    To those who have done psych interviews, what does it consist of exactly? I'm not seeing an informative post on it yet; if anyone has already written something though, my apologies.

    Congratulations to everyone so far.

    Oviera, I know a few guys who did not get BI's initially and are now getting calls to begin their field investigation. I am assuming we won't hear anything until they are completed with that. Not to mention, there appears to be a number of people who already received conditionals and were not selected for the January academy.

    I did my psych interview yesterday, and I asked why some people were chosen while others weren't. She said that I specifically was chosen for one because of a few reasons. Primarily, I got jumped a few weeks back and filed a police report and talked to my BI about it, so she wanted to see how I was affected by it. I also said on the psych test that I've seen a traumatic traffic accident and a dead body, and she wanted to ask me about those. The last two were because of my EMT job. It was pretty relaxed, and my interviewer was very cool and professional. She also asked about my relationship history, my family history, my college experience, how I did in school and what I liked and disliked about it, my drinking habits, drug experience. Pretty standard. Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the reply. So in other words, there doesn't seem to be a trackable rhyme or reason to it.... The guessing game continues I guess.

    Does anyone know if you can check your phych status via the internet? I was told today by one of the psych doctors that we could?

    I didn't see anywhere online where you could do it. I waited a week or two then just called and asked.
