I know something about Columbus has appeared before, but it has dropped way off the radar.

Anyways, how long does the entire process take and what order is it in? I have the basic information from the Civil Service Commission and that's about all they have as well.

Also, if any one has any experience anywhere requesting an accomodation for a civil service exam on account of a military commitment, I'd like to hear what happened because Columbus does the same and I'd like to know what kind of accomodations have been given in other places so I have an idea of what to expect.
