I am starting to wonder if I should just start looking elsewhere or in another field or something. Is anyone else in this boat? One that had passed the CPAT on Chicago's dime and not heard a thing afterwords, that is.
    I am in the same boat passed my cpat and am still waiting to hear from by b.i.

    So, I spoke to Ms. Hammond today. Apparently I was mailed a packet back in the first part of the year. I never got it. She said that had it been received and turned in, I would have started with the class that began yesterday. Anyone else have a similar problem? I am begging to get back in the process (not sure where the packet ended up) but I am obviously behind people that have passed a lot of stuff. Is the stuff that you guys have done so far able to be done to one person or a small group pf people or was it largely group stuff where the infrastructure isn't going to be set up for just a few stragglers.

    She couldn't confirm anything else because the system was down.

    That sure was me I was nuts to think I would be able to pass the cpat on a foot that still hurt when I walked on it. Once my foot healed I passed but I waited and had the city pay for me to retake it. My b.i. Just called me yesterday afternoon.

    I left several VM and emails the past fewweeks and nothing. I don't want to end up being "that guy" so I'll be patient. If you have any luck, give us an update.

    I feel like they're probably taking a breather once they had this class filled. Had my medical exam on Oct 31st, and still have yet to hear anything, and I'm almost positive they're going to want a Dr.'s note from me...

    I think things are going to start moving again because I got my call from b.i. Yesterday and she stopped by my house today.

    I have a feeling that the guys in the academy have been told to stay off these forums. It seems very unlikely that nobody would have given an update by now unless that was the case. Sucks for us, cause I know we all want to know how things are going. I have a buddy in there right now, so I will see if I can dig some info from him and relay it to everyone

    I heard a guy give weekly updates on what was going on in the academy on this thread it should be a few hundred pages back. He was in the last class before the lawsuit class if you find it let me know what page it's on.

    Hey all, I've been following this post on and off since the beginning and instead of trying to uncover all my questions myself I figure I'll just ask. I understand that a class just started but I'm just curious as to what number aprox was this class up to? Also I understand that there are a bunch of peopel currently in the process and/or waiting for the next class to start and if anybody has the aprox what number this includes. Also are there enough people playing the waiting game to fill another class or two. I'm an 01 and it seems that if another batch of interest letters was sent out I might be included ( I know long shot and don't have hopes up, just wishful thinking).Thanks.

    Sounds like there will be two more classes of 150 out of the group currently processing. When I scheduled medical in October she said they might do one more group after this.

    My suspicions were right, we won't be hearing anything from guys in the class. That is coming from a friend of mine who's in there right now. Going to get very quiet around here

    Seems that a few of the instructors down there were following this thread leading up to final processing. They let it be known to everyone that they were aware of all the talk that went on this forum. They might even know a few of the candidates who were posting on here beforehand. all the big talkers that were on here are now probably trying to fly under the radar at the academy. They might be scared to post in fear of retribution(more up and overs, or something to that extent).
