    Couple of questions of FLETC. Do families visit often? How much free time do you have? Do most people have families go down for Graduation?

    Thanks!
    Youre at class 7:30-4:30. Your free time is your own so in theory your family could come every day if you wanted. Lots of people wait til towards then end though when the stress is off.

            I just wanted to say "hang in there" to those in wait, and congratulate those who will be in my class. I look forward in meeting them.....Anyone else here going to Calexico, CA???
            See you Apr 9th!

              Thats free time also, unless they go to 6 day training. Thats where you train mon-sat, but get paid o.t. on saturday. You'll make a few extra bucks and finish fletc a little quicker, but trust me you'll want the extra day off instead.

                My hubby is there now and he has his weekends free. He is coming home for about 24 hours for our sons birthday and the kids and I are going to go down in May for his graduation.

                If my son's b-day had not fallen during his time there he would not see us until graduation Airfare is not cheap

I was there about the same time as reddog, they had computers inside the library and on the second floor of the same building. I only used them a couple of times during lunch. I was in building 96 and one of the supervisor's for the contractor at the end of the building had a wireless router installed in his office, so if you sat near the end of the building you could get internet. You definitely needed bug spray when you went there. There is also wireless at the student center, so bring you laptop. There is a Starbucks by Target that has wireless access, but you have to pay for it, at least it isn't monitored, so if someone sends you something that isn't "work safe" you can go there to read it. I second the bug spray, there were only a couple times when I needed it, but other were getting tore up by the gnats. You must go to Pam's, Sally's and the Red Carpet (once). Several of us had problems getting pizza from the Pizza Hut just off center, so we ordered fro Papa John's. If you get injured and think you can tough it out, go to the trainers, not the medical unit, unless you don't mind getting shipped home and coming back when you are healthy.

                      UGHHH thats right!! I forgot about how long it took for the pizza to come--what a horrible thing that was!!!! It took 3 hrs once for our pizza to come..I kept calling and calling. I filed a complaint and got the nasty pizza free---that was horrible....
                      the red carpet--never went--- but if my husband were there, he WOULD not go!!!! LOL---- some of the roll players that work with FLETC work at the red carpet--hate to see them naked!! LOL---
                      O yes, they do have buses on the weekend to take you to walmart and the mall, which is prett good--Dont have to pay to go there... BUG SPRAY!!! thats a MUST!!

The reason why I am asking is I saw that the border states were the only ones posted for the new announcement? Would one have a better chance at these states as far as getting and through the process quicker?
                        I made a post about 5 days ago about this...YES, they r hiring big time..So if you change you location to here, u will get a call SOON!!! if you are just waiting for a call for a place to go..I WOULD change my location---You will get a call SOON!!!

                            It doesnt matter what you score on the test..it is pass or fail..doesnt matter if you get a 99 or a 70---u go in the same pool...

                              Scores matter to set who gets a TO first, which are sent by score order... after that it all goes into the same pool and whoever gets into TSU first wins!
