    questions about the internet at fletc, i was wondering if it would be better to purchase that verizon wireless mobile broadband while attending fletc?
    I have a iPhone so I don't have to worry. It's a very cool device. I have read that some people don't recommend bringing a laptop since you would have to carry it around everywhere. But others have said computer access is fairly limited. But I have also read the internet traffic is highly monitored, so it's best to stay off the FLETC network for personal things. Before I got my phone I was thinking about internet cell service for a laptop, but I didn't want to get locked into a contract for a service I would only use during training.

          From the AT&T coverage map it looks like 3G will be available and pretty strong. But I am also curious to hear first-hand from a person at FLETC how the service actually is. I am also curious to hear what the cellphone policy is at FLETC. From the FLETC student website, they sound like they are fairly strict to discourage student cheating and photos of trainees from leaking out.

          • just received a letter stating that my qualifications are now complete! Qualified for GS7 and everything is completed. CASS still states that my qualifications are still pending so I'll just have to wait for that to update as well. Just have to wait for the call now.

                Not really. They obviously dont want them going off during class, and they have to be off and in your book bag during tests. Other than that you can use them whenever.

                • Does anyone know if there is any hiring going on for the state of Georgia?
                  I have a TO but it seems like everything is standing still no drug test yet, no VBT results and nothing from my BI. I also notice that not many people are being called from the southeast, maybe I should change my location or something. Anyone with any insight please give me something to chew on.

                    What about AT&T? Good or bad signal?

                      I have verizon. The service is good everywhere but in the taj dorms and around the pool between the buildings.

                            That seems like a pretty normal schedule. I wouldn't be worried.

                              You should not worry too much, its just a game of waiting. Me and many others have had BI's or other steps pending for months.

                                It should be on the upper right hand corner of your Tentative Selection letter.
