    Default Insight for LA City test?

    Does anyone have any insight to the LA City testing process. I am traveling in from WA to test. Just trying to get an idea of what to expect or if I do get to the next steps, how many trips I can plan on making.

    One for the written test.
    One for the oral board.
    One to turn in your background packet.

    After that you will not have to make a trip down untill the medical and psych. Do NOT get your hopes up, even if you are in the medical stage of the process. They move A LOT of people on. The process also takes a very long time so be patient.

    Good luck. Great department.

    I'm going through the initial panel for my background right now. The first part of the process moved pretty quick for me. I went for my written in January. Passed and had my interview in February. They scheduled me so that if I passed my interview with a 95 or higher(what you need to assure that you will move on) I could do my background interview the same day since I'm from Milwaukee, WI. I got through that and I'm about a month into the initial panel. So hopefully I'll know if I move on in about another month.

    Like BKDRAFT said, it's a tough process. There are a lot of applicants(2nd biggest dept in the country) so a lot will be cut.
