    Moving on. One of the 3 guys I know that also interviewed is continuing as well.

    Looks to be about a %50 attrition rate so far. Not quite as good as sniper school but it's up there. Good luck to those moving on. To those that aren't, stay in the fight.

    Congrats WB. It looks as if you are testing across the whole united states. I swear I see your name in almost every thread!!!

    I was under the impression that there was only going to be between 50 to 70 people going to the next interview. It would be nice to know what the final numbers were!

    Thanks. Fire for effect. All the departments I'm applying to are good departments that need bodies. Each have pros and cons, from weather to budget issues, but it will be a hard choice if multiple offers start coming in.

    In the presentation posted online they said the top 55-65 people would advance to the oral résumé. It is a chance to show what is special about you. A friend made it that far a few years back, made a power point presentation and everything, but was passed over.

    Having your choice of departments would be a great problem to have.

    On a side note emails have been sent with the interview times and dates. I got schedule for April 21st at 2:00 PM. Hope to see you guys there.

    Haha. I know how you feel. I am sure you will do great. From the sounds of it you have had lots of practice lately. Good luck today.

    You'd think so, but I'm pretty sure I blew it. No one to blame but myself. Hopefully they'll see that I'd be a good addition to their department despite all the aimless rambling I was doing. I'm pretty sure I accidentally insulted their department, sounded like a gossip, and topped it off with some mild racism. The aftermath was especially frustrating given how untrue those things are and how much I wanted a spot there. The upside is that I've finally figured out what I need to do to correct what just happened. Too bad it was at the sacrifice of one of the most desirable departments I can think of.

    Good luck to ya man, and all the guys on here that will be moving on.

    As I suspected, I got the axe. A friend of mine made it through but like you, could use a better rank. Hope you get the call man, good luck.

    James,

    My buddy was picked up for the upcoming academy. He starts the 18th. He doesn't know how many others were picked up. He was ranked no. 1

    Trevor,

    Thanks for the update. That is great news. I am about halfway down the list so every class they have means I am a little bit closer. Please keep us posted if you hear any new information or how many people where selected for this academy.
