    Default Psych interview

    Hey Miller, I had to come back for an interview with the psych. It was no biggie they'll ask you a lot of questions about your responses on the written psych as well as your childhood and up bringing. They asked me a lot of questions about iraq and the military don't know if that apllies to you or not. If its over the phone maybe they only have a few questions for you and are trying to save time. Either way good luck, i've already recieved my letter that i passed the med and psych just waiting for that phone call.

    Wow, I thought initial panel was quick and background was slow. I guess I was wrong. This is going to kill me. Well good luck to you guys going on dec1st. I wish I can be on the next one or so.

    I did. I went in for my Psych interview last Friday. I was probably in there for about 30-45 minutes. The Psychologist pretty much asked me about my growing up and relationships with my family. then we talked about my military experience for a while then the last part was talking about how i was getting ready for the academy. They might also ask you to explain a couple of your answers on your psych test. It was pretty easy.
    Now I am just waiting for the call for my academy date. I hope I get into the Dec 1st one.

    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 wonít 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 Hello everyone

    Just wanted to get all of your emails, so i can keep in contact with you all as i am in the dec 1st academy also. I wanted to know if anyone is moving around there so they are closer to the tower? I live in Laguna right now and that is was to far to drive everyday.

    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.
