    I got into backgrounds in March 2016. I am scheduled for live scan and after that I am done with the process, so hopefully I will hear something soon.
    So they had you in the selection process for close to 2 years?

          Kassy, you did medical too right? They made me do medical but haven't done psych exam. Wonder if they have already a batch done with all the process.

              How long have you been in the process?

          • my process was very interesting to most of the part. I had 2 BI and been 2 years and 6 moths rolling dices. Well, I hoping to hear something. I am still deciding whether continue with a BA program or do self-sponsor next year.

            • Hey guys, just want throw some hopes. I don't know how many been waiting for so long, but don't give up or feel discouraged. Keep applying to agencies. I've been in this blog since I applied 2 years ago. I was not even expecting to do medical after not hearing for while. Now back to the wait but get keep hustling and achieve this goal for ourselves and whoever count on us

              • Yes I agree. I've been in the process now 1 year and 7 months. Though I finished everything from the application all the way to the medical in 1 year and 4 months. I don't get why some are made to wait longer and why they continue posting the same job for new applicants, when they haven't finished processing the current applicants. Maybe it's to have a vault of applicants to draw from anytime. I can't say much, but I was contacted to verify some information and they mentioned they were reviewing applicants full packets. (character review by COP) My information was accepted. Due to the OPD scandal, every tiny detail is being evaluated. I don't know more, so just waiting.....I'll update if any new info is received.

                    a friend of mine who got accepted into the academy.

                • I am currently in the backgrounds phase of the hiring process. I am getting a few runs in every week. If anyone lives close to the San Jose area and would like to have a running and fitness buddy, please feel free to PM me.

                      Congratulations, how was your first week so far? I was told that the next academy would likely be in mid-August.

                        Appreciated. First week was great; settled in now. And yes, you are right about the approximate date/month of the next academy.

                        Can you give us some insight on what you did exactly on your first week (especially the physical training) and some advice for potential OPD academy attendees?
