    Hello all! I definitely lurked the old thread, and it was full of answers for me, so I figured I'd share my experience/timeline. PAT March 2014, Written April 2014, Orals May, Background processing July 5, heard from my BI early Sept, fingerprinting late Oct/early Nov, medical and psych December, heard nothing January- mid March and got the call a few weeks ago! Needless to say it is a process, and while I think every applicant would like to know the process and figure out the order in which things get processed, just give it some time and keep the positive vibes! Can't wait to meet everyone in a few short weeks. Now for the really fun part- trying to find a reasonable place to stay!

        Also, I had to explain the use of marijuana in 2008 as experimentation . And work experience , I had to explain the reason why I had an entry level discharge from military due to family hardship . However , I laready built work experience and that was 3 years ago

        None of it was a disqualification but was screen out once because my credit report
        I think you were screened out due to unpaid bills, because that showed you were immature and irresponsible with your money. Because they feel that if you're not responsible with your money, that could lead to gambling and etc

            In my experience I had credit issues as well, actually had a bill go to collection. If you took care of it,it not only shows responsibility but that you take initiative to handle your business regardless the depth it has acquired. My B.I told me now a days everyone has some type of financial issues its tough but what will help you is that you took care of it and its no longer on your record. I just cleared my backgrounds last week my B.I contacted me and told me I was in great shape and that now it was up to the board to give me a good enough grade to get into the academy coming up. If you fail try again my man. You will be in soon best of luck

Last time I called , they still looking on prior applicants for April academy . It was enough time to gather documents for bi and have my background squared away. I guess no news is good news . Does anyone still waiting for a bi or been through the process . It been a long process though
                        Did you already have your oral? If so, did you get the results?

                              • Hello all, I have an application in for academy graduate. Has anyone gone through this process? I hear there is a transitional academy you would have to attend if accepted.

                                Just gathering any information I can at the moment.

                                Thanks!
