      Yeah. I really dont know what to say. But I understand how he/she feels. I felt the same way before my oral interview.

        Bump to that. It is a good thing that they don't allow you to discuss it outside, but man it would have been nice to have some better direction. I passed, but I was very sure I had failed.

        The only other thing I was going to say was, at mine they asked for my Social Security Card. I couldn't find that instruction in my book anywhere, but they still did.

        • Same here....I thought I had failed. The Agent told me to step outside and like 5 mins later they call me back inside!!! I was thinking to myself wow they decided pretty quick to kick to the curb lol but I was wrong and passed!!

          • I was wondering if someone could help me with this question? I've tried looking on honorfirst.com but couldn't find it. What does the PT consist of in the acodomey? Is it something like run 3-5 miles every other day? 5x a week? 3x a week? Any input would be great!!!

            • During my oral board the three agents messed with me after calling me back into the room. They said after discussing my answers they felt I should wait some time and reapply. I was stunned and mouth dropped open before they started laughing and told me I passed. I guess since I was the first interview in the early morning they needed to have a little fun.

                • This sucks man !

                  Referred to Schedule EOD 2/26/2009 You have been referred to the scheduling unit. Generally an applicant can expect to be contacted to schedule their entrance on duty and/or training in 30 - 60 days. Depending on an applicant's selected locations scheduling calls could be extended an additional 30 days or more.

                    Don't worry. You are very very very close the receiving "the call". Check out the TSU senority List on HonorFirst, and you will see they are currently calling applicants in the mid Febuary range. Dont lose hope, and make sure you are excersising. It may be next week.

                      Yeah, I was the first one to arrive. I was about ten minutes early. Half of the 4 people who had an oral board that morning showed up late. I was shocked they would do something like that.

                          Yes you are correct. Once you finish all pre-employment steps the next line you wait in is TSU. Once a position is open TSU delivers "the call" telling you X, Y, or Z has an open position in your selected location, and if you wish to accept. If you do accept you will be given an EOD date and a date which you start FLETC. From what I have seen on the forums your EOD date is about 2 weeks before the FLETC date. You report first to your duty station before FLETC to fill out paperwork, meet the station chief, watch some training videos, clean the break room, and other busy work.
