    Are there applicants already chosen for the February academy? OR will they start making calls in January? I heard they must tell you at least 2 weeks prior to the start date if you are chosen.

    Also, is it a call, email, or formal letter in the mail? Just wondering. Thanks.
    The selection of who gets into an academy class can't happen before the eligibility meeting

      Would I be reading too much into that statement to infer that means the current pool doesn't have enough good candidates to fill a class?

        • Received an email today regarding the next written for Q-2. 7,100 applicants this time around. And i thought testing back in 2011 there was a lot...wow! Hopefully us that just attended triage will get through the process rather quickly for the Feb or May academy. Hurry up and wait...haha

              • Keep in mind, 7,100 applied, not 7,100 passed everything and is in backgrounds right now. Less than 1/4 of that number will be even selected to backgrounds. Then there's is where your competition is, not the 7,100 that applied.

                • I heard from my BI. He was just checking in and said they were still expecting a hiring meeting mid-January and an academy in February.

                  • Does anyone know what these hiring meetings consist of? Are we present for these meetings, or are they conducted on their own?

                    rsb - at least you got a call to assure you they are still considering you. hopefully i get a call soon as well.

                      Hope so. I think that mainly he just wanted to make sure I hadn't gotten fired, gotten a ticket, or anything negative, and make sure phone numbers and so on were still current.
                      We're not @ the eligibility or hiring meetings.

Since I have to travel and would like to make plans as far in advance as possible, I was hoping somebody might have a time frame on the next steps of the process if I am selected to move forward.
                              They will give out of state folks first picking of test dates from what I remember. But I know for the written part(if you haven't taken it yet) they are pretty strict on that part since there are many people who apply.

                                How far are you beyond meeting w/ your BI? I have my poly after the holidays.
