    jetguy81;1385431]Any word or mention of them calling people about there medicals? Did mine 3 weeks ago (9/12)and no word. I know there's 13 others that did medical same week. Hoping no word is a good thingC

    Just going back and assuming that they started the medical process on sept 12 (about 20 people per class , it has been 5 weeks - 100 people. Someone said that last weeks class was about 40 people and their is another class scheduled today that should bring the total to 160?) Maybe they overscheduled because somewould have questions on their medical.

    They absolutely are scheduling more then they need to fill the class. They have to figure in people not passing and other things that might come up.

    The location for the medical is Presidential Towers.
    so your medical dates were two weeks apart? When we went on a thursday our medical appts were for the next day Friday, monday, tuesday and thursday. Where you part of the group that had the 40 +
    people? Then that would make sense.

    Yes he was part of the 44 person group that went in last Thursday. They had 9 dates on the board for medical Mon-Thur this week and Mon-Fri next week and each date had 5 or 6 times from 7am-12:30pm. We selected dates based on the time we arrived and signed in.

    I was part of the 40. Because of the size of the group, they had 2 weeks worth of medical times to choose from. They started the following week on Monday. I took mine first thing Monday.

    The way Ms. Hammond made it sound, with last weeks group we were up to 135 for the class. The other 15 were crossovers bringing the total to 150. I dont know how many they figured would not pass medical.

    Hey, I had a missed call from CFD Personnel office about 30 minutes ago. She told me to call back as soon as possible. I tried calling, but of course no answer. A little nervous. Anyone else get a call today??? Anyone know why they called???

    Well, you had your medical exam on 9/13 so it's most likely to come in for FP. I doubt they would call you a month later with medical issues.

    I know for a fact the medical does not take a month to get back to CFD for review. Ms. Hammond said 7 days at the most. From what I was told 4 days is the norm. And if it was anything major they call within 24 hours. At least that is what I was told by people at the medical place.

    ^A commissary is someone delegated by a superior to execute a duty or an office; in a formal, legal context, one who has received power from a legitimate superior authority to pass judgment in a certain cause or to take information concerning it.

    everything went well today. met dalsh, 2ndgen, alex_v. there were like 13-14 guys total.

    obviously we took **** test first. only one person administering, so it took over an hour.

    the time slots were from oct. 24th - nov. 1st. ms. hammond said something like 125-150 have been through to this point so far including us, so it looks like we're in for november too (considering not everyone who takes the medical will pass, residency requirements, etc.). i felt like we had a really good question and answer session after the signup.

    hell, we even had donuts.

    another applicant brought them as a gift to personnel and they weren't allowed to accept, so there was a box of donuts for us.

    I have been having issues with the site all day. Today went smoothly I counted 18 of us, 2 women. I'm scheduled for medical next Thursday, which was the first available day and yes, Ms. Hammond said she believes about 125-150 are now scheduled for medical up through today. Another guy there today said he talked to Ms. Hammond yesterday and she asked if he could come in today or next Thursday and he said he could make it today and she said good, b/c by next week you might be held out of November class.
