    FD are you able to confirm or deny this post from a few weeks back?
    Calendar year maybe, fiscal year doubtful.

Anyone know roughly how many people each FO recommends for the application link, on average? Here I am again trying to make sense of the longest hiring process in which I am likely to be involved with.
      There are a lot people on the shelf.

      • It must be getting pretty heavy on that shelf at this point then....must be about to break.

        • When you say there are a lot on the shelf are you meaning that they are just awaiting the call? At what point in the process does one get moved to the mysterious, prestigious shelf?!

          • Not trying to be an AL_NERI here, just a realist but with the shelf as big as it is, I feel like the final hiring authority or however it works up in DC may start to become very selective on who gets a final offer. With 2 classes filled (and I'm assuming the Dec class is filled as calls went out a couple weeks ago) post-preference sheet for the few of us few Oct 14ers still hanging around, it may not be looking too good. Definitely not a good sign when the applicants behind you get an offer before you. Last time this happened to me I got a BQA letter a few weeks after.

              Never heard of people getting preference sheets and not getting a call. Why send one then? Not to mention anyone behind me getting a call either. Everyone that has magically disappeared off this forum got their preference sheet before I did. I was one of the last. FD2FED care to shed any light on this realism friend? If you aren't tired of doing so already

              • Oh and I did hear that December and January are not full yet. Just rumors though. But maybe yea that guy has a point. I have had my preference sheet for two months as of tomorrow and radio silence. Now I'm very nervous again like pre pref sheet.

                • It would be interesting to know if they have enough shelved current/former 1811's to fill an add-on only class.

                    When you have passed all phases, received official notice of medical clearance, and filled out a revised preference sheet......then you are on the shelf.

                      I doubt that would ever happen. Not saying it won't, but highly doubtful.

                        You went from all FY17 classes being full, to not even December being full. Relax my friend, you're creating unnecessary stress.

                          May not be looking too good for what? You finished the entire process and filled out a preference sheet. Now it's just a waiting game, for some longer than others.

                          • Lol. I guess what that guy is saying is that he has not received an offer after having a preference sheet in hand for a while in another announcement or a previous time he was in the process and maybe a preference sheet doesn't mean you were selected for a class and just waiting to be put into one.....I have no idea. That's what it sounded like when I read it.
