    BODE, you just made my day...I was hoping she would fail the CPAT to show it wasn't the physical, she was just not in shape. But failing the drug test is even better!!!

    When was she drug tested? In the paper last week, the lead plaintiff was still in the CPAT process. Would be ironic if true.

    Her body language didn't give hope for a November class or that you would be in a November class? I think in the long run , they will still have a class and hopefully we hear from BI's soon.

    everything is probably pushed back because they background checked everyone in the lawsuit group first and only eight of them passed. now they are going to have to scramble through background checking us to get enough people to fill a class. who knows.

    I know this process sucks, but since we were contacted back in April, things have been moving along. I just don't see how/why they would be processing all of us with no certainty of an upcoming class. Who knows, it may be in December or January or later, but it has to happen. There is no way they are going to fill an all women academy and they're not going to scrap this list, test again, and hire off that one. We just need to be patient and stop driving ourselves crazy with all the doom and gloom stuff. My $.02

    hey guys i have been reading this site for awhile now first time posting. i was a pat 10 guy i did get a call from the Bi on August 26. did cpat on my own and turned it in the first day. i think she might be giving you the old run around... i don't believe she really knows who you or any of us are to give a direct order of this process... i mean she was surprised that the medical officer hasn't call you yet? like she really knows who is getting called or not. how are you going to get a call from the medical officer if you haven't got your bi yet? Every time you talk to her, she is always surprised you haven't got a call. i think she just keeps telling you things so you leave or hang up. i think it's going to happen we all might now get in November, but we will get in if you pass everything.i just really want to know, will we all get calls for BI and medical if we are not going into the November class? someone should ask her that if you can get a hold of her. people on the job told me that they are not going to do an all girls class so there will be two classes so i think that's a good thing. they also said that they paid for the two classes already so i think it is going to happen.

    I ran into one of them over the weekend, she's a friend from back in the day. She punch me in stomach when she told me she passed CPAT, because my response was "really?", in a surprised tone, because she weighs around 100lbs.

    I know we don't have any union support or backing. Im Not trying to be silly.

    But have you considered asking your dad who is to contact them to see if they have any have any advice on how to help you out?

    I'm not saying you're right or wrong, just funny regarding the lack of certainty in any information. After last week's medical group we heard both 6 girls and 8 girls and now this week 2 girls.

    Also 2ndGen, I hope you lit a spark under someone and you hear something soon, but I also called and e-mailed her last week and heard back from her this afternoon, also stating she was surprised I had not heard from my BI yet and that I should be hearing something shortly.
