    Man, that is pretty quick. According to previous posts, the CPAT came shortly after. I am looking up online for material regarding preparing for it (in case, I scored high enough). Anyone on here who has done it previously have any advice?

    Can't wait for the CPAT! Good to know I made it to the next round after missing the cut last time.

    Well, I didn't make the cut. I got the email today that split your scores up, and while I did very well in the cognitive portion (91), I scored very poorly in the behavioral portion (61). I am really glad that they sent an email out explaining somewhat how the exam is scored. I am impressed with the SA application process. Congratulations to all those who made the cut and good luck in the rest of the process!

    No, I am not. Do you ask because of the similar names?

    The class that's going on right now which was formed from the last test has some people that were ranked in the 160's. I think there is a real chance if your in the 130's. That being said, there are a bunch of different factors (size of class, people in front of you dropping out, and just getting through the process itself while staying patient).

    I agree with what TJM said. I was in the 160's and I was the final person out of 43 selected into the academy. And like he said, just be patient- it is a looong process. Just stay out of trouble and don't get hurt in the meantime.
