Im keeping my fingers crossed for the feb academy. congrats millertime

    Hey guys I just finished reading this whole thread and id like to congratulate all of you who have made it to the tower. It is quite the accomplishment and the start of an awesome career. Anyhow, I won’t be applying until next year, but while this thread is hot I have a couple of questions. I have heard two sides to whether you should tell the truth for things such as trying pot; yes I did a couple of times a couple of years ago. I have heard that yes honesty is the best way to go, but often times it can come and bite you. Also, what kind of experience did you guys have such as EMT box time, volunteer station time, degrees, fire academy, etc. Thanks for any info you can provide and once again congrats!

    Default Approximate age of new hires?

    First, thanks to everyone for some great info on this site. It really helps to hear that others are going through the same things.

    I am way behind most of you. I have my Oral interview on Dec 1.

    Does anyone know the general age of the new hires?

    Good luck to us all and CONGRATS to the guys starting the Tower Dec 1.

    Post Waiting on Final panel

    This is my first time on this site and I found a lot of great info. I am waiting for the call from final panel as well. Already did Med and Psych about two months ago. My process was a little different because I just needed to update my stuff. Talked to personnel a few days ago, and they should have an answer for me by Friday. Let's hope I get in. Congrats to all of you that got the call already!! Hopefully I will see you all there as well.

    ok so i filled out the PBQ and put that i have a misdemeanor about 3 years ago, so it said an Advisory Background Assessment has been prepared. what does that mean? and what do you think i can expect on the background interview.

    Question Carpooling

    Hey guys if anyone's interested in carpooling for the December tower, please contact me. I live in Long Beach and unfortunately won't be able to make the move up north to be closer. We'll probably work this out at orientation but just wanted to get a jump on it and see who my neighbors are.

    I was with an Anti-Terrorist unit over in Europe and Africa then I was with 2/1 G. Yourself?
    Congrats on getting the call. See you on the 17th.

    Question:
    I passed the oral and had my initial background meeting in mid-October. Consistent with application, I admitted to drug use on three discreet occasions over 10 years ago: pot twice, coke once (I'm not a pup). After my meeting, I was told that I would hear from personnel within a month to let me know whether I would get an investigation.

    Today I got a notice that I had passed the interview with a score of 95 and that I have been placed on a hiring list with eligibility through 10/2010. I'm not sure if this is to be interpreted as me being toast in the process. Anyone have any insight?

    Default Info

    Hey it would be great if some of you fellas would be able to label a time line for some of us still waiting or just beginning the process.

    By time line i mean like how long after your interview did you have a background interview, then results in the mail from panel, length of background, et cetera.


    Also, how many of you guys got 95s, 100s, or even 105s. Im really curious, and i think this can benefit a lot of guys who are wondering as well

    Thanks guys
