    For my sake, I hope the above is correct (10-point vet, B.S. in high demand field, J.D. from top law school [Harvard/Yale/Stanford]). However, from my discussion, it seems like they are much more concerned with finding the right people than hiring people simply because of vet status. It is a fact that the initial rating will involve vet preference. However, who knows how big the pool from which they will draw upon for the 40 interviews. It could contain 80 people or 400 people. At that stage (when they determine who to interview), they can use whatever subjective criteria they want for determining who is most qualified.

    I realized I had yet to receive a confirmation email, so I decided to give a call over just to be safe (I attached some pretty large PDF's and I'm always afraid they will get lost in space). Also, got some GREAT intel on what is going on:

    1. Do not expect a confirmation email. Too many applicants and too little time, as Det_sje expected.

    2. Vet preference does apply and the rating of applicants will follow standard vet preference rating requirements.

    3. Ratings will be determined around March/April. Once ratings have been determined, about 40 people who are in the highest qualified group will be offered interviews, while the thousands of others will be emailed a "sorry, better luck next time."

    4. Approximately 25 of the 40 people selected for an interview will be offered a COE. The lucky 25 (and unlucky 15) will likely be notified by early summer.

    5. Once you accept the COE, all the fun stuff starts (BI/poly/Med/Drug test). Once all has been completed and approved, you go into the pool.

    6. Once in the pool, you can be selected at any time. You will first report to you duty location about a month prior to FLETC to get all the administrative stuff squared away.

    7. Go to FLETC and enjoy your career.

    Of note: While approximately 25 people will be given a COE, they only expect to fill 12 spots from this vacancy. Additionally, he said the first people given a final duty station will likely not report until late September/early October (and even that may be optimistic).

    Any idea what the timeline is, if any?

    Going to throw my hat in the ring. As for the resume formatting, how strict are they on the formatting?
    The formatting makes it seem that you just list things back to back with commas.

    I was hoping to get one as well, but my belief is that he will probably get so many emails that he won't send out confirmations.

    I just hope that non-vet are given the slightest bit of consideration.

    I'm hoping that because this is a "developmental" vacancy, I won't be penalized for not having sworn law enforcement experience. Good luck, Det_sje.

    That's why I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

    Finally got all my stuff together and sent it off earlier this morning. Hopefully we'll all get hired. :-)

    Any idea on how many positions are open?
