      No prob, night owl here. You're in a rock and a hard place I guess and have a decision to make. I mean, think about it. If you don't take the PTT, they aren't going to hold up the process for you. Everyone else will move forward to the next step in the process.

      What is the January mark?

But sadly I may have to sacrifice the job in order to continue the process.
          I mean, if they let you take the PTT with the next round that's good sice you'll still be in the process, and still be able to handle your other business. What do you have to lose?

Curious because i was recently given only one day and it just happens that its the same day i need to certify for a new job. I asked the agent and said they need to have it done by the end of Jan but that he wouldnt be able to test again until Feb. Am I screwed if I do that?
            We had 2 days to pick from (a Thurs or a Fri).

              My guess is each division is doing what it takes within their respective divisions to get the tests done.

                "scramble to find the last 7 recruits to fill the Jan academy class"

                That's unreal! So if that's the case how are they going to fill the March class, with most July applicants not finished yet that pretty much only leaves only us Feb 14 applicants, right?

                  July applicants will be ready for the March class as long as the medical review officer gets on the ball. I am a July applicant with my poly scheduled, and I am just waiting on the medical clearance after that...as far as I know.

                    Nice! I know some Feb 14 applicants that are still waiting on the MRO to get on the ball, so hope they finish you all up quickly!

                      I think that is why they had us sign the waiver at the interview that we could be slated for FLETC and attend training even before the BI was completed. If they find something unfavorable, we could be terminated without recourse. Appears the drag in the process is the medical clearance. Hopefully they find a way to get the applicants waiting processed to fill FLETC seats.

                      • Are there any Feb 2014 applicants waiting on medical clearance that DID NOT have to submit follow-up documentation for an issue? Just looking to see if there is a common denominator.

                        • Yes. I have a partner in that group who did not have to submit a follow-up and is still waiting on the letter. From August.

                            That seems like a ridiculously long wait. Maybe they'll have the kinks worked out by the time I (hopefully) get to the medical.

                            • I also know of a February applicant (not the same person as ICE) who has yet to receive the medical clearance.

                              • I seem to be one of the few, at least from what I've seen on this forum, who skirted the medical back log. I had to submit a follow-up, took about 4-5 weeks (including follow-up paperwork) from initial submission to medically cleared. Not sure how that happened, but ill take it!
