What are the odds that they try to start another class in the fall of 2014. So it seems like half probably wont get in. That sucks. I'm still waiting on a call for medical. Also does anyone know if you dont pass a step, if they send you a letter saying your out for being a FF?
    But,at least as of now, they still appear to be calling people for BI who have completed the CPAT on their own. Hopefully they continue in that order. Then at least most of us on here might have a shot. If they are just piling the folders up and grabbing at random then yes odds are stacked against us.I guess that is the unknown going forward.

    I am not saying I haven't been interested or had questions in the past...but I am new to this website, so I was hoping since others have some previous experience they would be willing to share and let me know what to expect. Didn't mean to upset anyone.

    Newguy, it's nothing personal against you. Most of the people on here have been going through this process for over 4 years. Some made it as far "conditional" letter of employment. Others took the original physical over 3 years ago. So when someone posts on here that they just started the process in April, it upsets those who have been waiting and waiting for years. I don't think you came here to intentionally upset anyone. I think Goldie2002 has been through this most recent process so his advice sounds good.
    Again. It's not personal against you but the whole process has been hard on all of us here. Good luck tomorrow and feel free to share anything you hear tomorrow.

    Good for you. Why tell us your done with your physical and not give us any info. Nobody cares that you did it, only about what happened. Are you trying to rub it in.

    Well, another week of no call. I am starting to get a bad feeling about all of this. Oh well. Hopefully next week brings some good new.

    Just got my BI call a couple mins ago. shes coming out to my house next week. I already live Edison Park for all of you guys looking to move out here. Hopefully we'll all be able to grab a celebration beer together out here if we make it through this together. But this is the first time ive heard from anyone since the hair test. I'm a Jan 2010 PAT , i got my CPAT on my own before our first day of processing in May at SUFD and was beginning to think they had misplaced my file or something. But damn it felt good to get that call. i hope you guys don't have to wait too much longer. I did email Ms. Hammond yesterday asking if i was missing any paperwork or anything, (knowing i wasn't) however i haven't gotten a reply email from her so im not sure if she brought my name to the attention of an investigator or if it was simply a coincidence. good luck everyone

    I am excited that the back ground went smoothly, I will be reporting to schedule the medical portion of this long wait at clinton st Tuesday next week. I was through the background stage in 2009. I wish all of you good luck to get the same news.
